How to Have a Home that Buyers Want to Buy
Being a Montgomery County PA home stager means dealing with seller's emotions. Often during home staging consultations, I'll hear the story of when a seller first bought their home and all the memories they've made in it since then. I know they love their house, and parting with it is bitter sweet. In their mind, it's the perfect house. Why wouldn't anyone want to buy it? But their impression of the house is completely different than their potential buyers. So how do you get buyers to have the same impression? Having your home staged will allow you to have a home that buyers want to buy.
How does home staging do that?
I always recommend taking out the majority of the family photos and diplomas/awards. It leaves room for your buyers to start to imagine building their own memories in the house. It also allows just enough of the warm and cozy feeling to stay because they can see that a family lives here. Buyers love houses that give off the "I can see us raising our future family here" vibe.
Home staging makes your home appeal to the broadest range of people. Things like taste specific paint colors or decor discounts a large chunk of buyers who can't see past your style. If you think about the rooms you see in magazines that everyone falls in love with, they have a natural balance of color and they're certainly not cluttered. A home stager will tell you what's going to work for you and what's not.
People have furniture placed in a way that works for them and their lifestyle. Often times there's too much furniture in a room or it's a weird layout and that makes the room appear smaller than it really is. A good home stager will move the "pieces" of your home around until it maximizes each space. Too much furniture in the living room and your master bedroom looks a little empty? Home staging fixes that.
