First Impressions Happen On-Line…Not Curbside

I bet when you saw the message Home Staging 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 prospective buyers that are previewing the property on-line into making an appointment to view the property in person!

Real estate professionals and home stagers are always talking to clients about the importance of a positive first impression.

Yes, it is a cliche, and yes it’s trite, but it’s still true. You only get one chance to make a positive first impression.

But here’s the twist

Not long ago that first impression happened when the prospective buyer(s) pulled up to the property. Even if the property didn’t especially grab them they would go ahead and tour since they were already there. Sometimes they discovered that the property had more to offer than they originally thought…sometimes not.

But today, over 90% of buyers will preview properties on-line before they even take the next step to schedule a showing. If the property does not grab them the instant they open the page they click the mouse and move on to the next listing. In a buyer’s market, like the one we are experiencing today in St Paul, Minnesota you can’t afford to miss an opportunity.

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.

I completely agree with you. Sometimes when you see unstaged vacant properties it's hard to imagine what they look like with your things in them. It is much easier to imagine yourself in a home with furniture and not an empy house. Thanks for sharing have a great day!
