Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money.
Staging techniques focus on improving a property's appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want. People usually use arts, painting, accessories, lights, greenery and carpet to stage the home, to give potential buyers a more attractive first impression of the property.
Of course home staging comes at a cost - If you're asking yourself any of these questions or fall into any of these categories, then home staging might be the best route for you.
- Living in an old worn out building with dated furniture
- My home has been on the market and isn't selling
- Could i get a higher price if i staged my home
In any case, if you're already working with a broker to sell your home, they will asses the market conditions and other comparable homes in the area and then advise whether home staging is the right route to help sell your home.
