The Importance of Staging

The most important thing you can do when selling your house is get rid of clutter. When potential buyers tour your house they want to envision their lives in their future home, home staging allows this to happen. It includes removing clutter, taking away the personal touches and decorating aesthetically.

What are the benefits of staging?

These are the 5 benefits that staging can provide:

1. Staging Can Help Achieve a Higher Price for Your Home

A well staged home is inviting, comforting and welcoming . If done right, potential buyers will be more likely to put in a competitive offer. According to The National Association of Realtors (NAR), Realtors®  believe that buyers most often offer a 1 to 5 percent increase on the value of a staged home.

2. Staging Often Results in a Faster Sale

Staging your home makes it more desirable to buyers, which can result in a faster sale! When a buyer really likes a home, they often submit an offer quickly (in fear of someone else beating them to it).
