Staging Vacant Homes Maximizes Square Footage and Value

By
Home Stager with Great Impressions Home Staging/Interiors

staging kitchen eating area maximizes spaceStaging vacant homes makes rooms look larger and maximizes square footage and buyer interest. In this builder's home located in Tenafly, NJ, buyers felt the size of the main floor rooms were too small, a problem for a home priced at over $1.6 million. Prior to bringing in rental furniture and accessories, the home sat on the market with no offers for 2 months. After staging in the fall, the home went under contract in 2 weeks. Once staged with the appropriately-sized furniture and the right number of pieces, the rooms were much more appealing to buyers and their doubts were removed. The family room in the top photo was 17' x 12.5' but appears larger when staged, as do the living room and dining room pictured, which are both 14' x 12'. The use of high-end transitional furniture, rugs, and accessories also complements the style of the home and the price point, increasing perceived value as well. #stagingworks14 x 12’ staged dining room, Tenafly, NJ

 "Great Impressions Get Offers"

Presentation and price are critical to selling houses quickly. You and your agent figure out the best price; I make your home stand out from the competition to appeal to the most buyers, whether they are first-time buyers, move-up buyers, or down-sizing buyers. As an accredited, experienced staging professional, I know how to make your home grab buyers' attention -- on the MLS and in person. A beautifully presented house makes a great impression, stands out from the competition, and generates offers faster than a non-staged house!

I agree with your post and encourage all sellers of vacant homes to at least stage the kitchens and bathrooms.

Thanks for your comment, Tracy. I believe staging smaller rooms with furniture is the most critical because buyers often think the rooms are too small to fit enough into and will cross the house off their list. Showing the right size furniture in place along with trendy accessories tends to eliminate those negative buyer reactions :)
