Staging vacant homes in St Paul, Minnesota sucks in OFFERS!
I bet when you saw the message Staging Vacant Homes In MN Sucks! in the subject line you thought something was amiss. If you know me, you know that I am passionate about telling anyone that will listen about the benefits of staging…..but here is the truth:
Staging Does Suck...It Sucks in Offers
It has never been an ideal situation for sellers to try to sell a vacant home, but in todays environment of foreclosures and distressed properties an empty home is assumed to be bank owned...and buyers expect to get a great deal for doing the bank the favor of taking the property off their hands.
The other problem with a vacant property, even one that is in good repair, is there is nothing to capture the hearts and minds of the buyer. Most buyers are not very good at judging space or visualizing what the room could look like when left only to their imagination. Sometimes buyers can't even figure out how a room could be used.
Then there is the issue of the mark on the wall, the small scratch on the floor, the cabinets that are not as new as the buyer might prefer. When there is nothing else to look at, that is what the prospective buyer focuses his or her attention on.
The bread and butter of my home staging and interior redesign business is staging vacant properties in the east metro of St Paul, MN. I own an extensive inventory of furniture, rugs, art, lighting, bedding...and pillows...don't even get me started on pillows. You do not have to own two homes full of furniture, or resign yourself to sleeping on the floor to keep your property furnished. Staging is really much more affordable than most people realize.
Staging also provides an excellent Return on Investment as demonstated in HomeGains 2011 Real Estate Survey.
You may think that the days of multiple offers are behind us. But I have staged many properties that have created bidding wars in the past year. Staged homes appeal to the lifestyle aspirations of buyers, they stand out from the competition, and they draw buyers in and encourage them to make appointments to see the property. If you can't get them in the door, you won't get them to make an offer.
A staged vacant property will make a great first impression in St Paul or anywhere. Care has been taken to insure that the best features of the room are not blocked by furniture or clutter, the lighting in the room is appropriate, the colors have been neutralized and attention has been given to considering how the property will appear in photographs.
