What is Home Staging? Is it important?
Home Staging has become very popular in recent years due to media outlets such as HGTV; but what exactly is home staging? It's pretty simple really. 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. Did you know that only 10% of home buyers can actually visualize the potential of a home when they walk through the front door? First impressions matter and this is why having a home professionally staged is so important. Buyers cannot visualize size and scale, so furniture and clean uncluttered rooms with the right accessories help to give them a frame of reference of what it would be like to own the home you are hoping to sell.
