What is “Home Staging”?
Home staging is preparing a property for sale in the real estate marketplace. The main goal of staging is to make the home as appealing as possible to the highest number of potential buyers. A professional home stage will be able to give an unbiased opinion about how your house will be perceived by potential buyers.
Benefits of Home Staging
- Give a positive impression for buyers
- Sell your home faster than the competition
- Start the packing process – many items will be packed up and ready to move
- Make your home more attractive and welcoming
- Improve the appearance / Command a higher price
- De-cluttering increases space and appeal
The Staging Process
Before buyers decide to buy, they need to mentally move their own things into a home. If a home has too much or too little in it, it is difficult for most buyers to visualize how their own things will look in the home. This is why staging a home is so critical!
The process begins with a consultation by Hometown Realty’s accredited home staging service. What happens next?
- “Buyer’s Eyes” room to room evaluation
- Discussion of Goals and Expectations
- Prepare a homeowner checklist
- Cost effective updates and repairs
- Organizational modifications
Changing the feel and look of a room can be as simple as packing away a few personal items or may be more labor intensive such as a fresh or neutral coat of paint.
Staging is beneficial regardless how large or small your home is. The stager’s role is to make suggestions that will enhance the overall appearance of the property. The seller will make the final decisions as to how much effort and time they want to devote to the stager’s recommendations.
