Selling a house, especially an empty house, requires imagination. It should receive home staging touches to make the minds of home buyers imagine the household as if they have already moved in to the property. It also serves solid proof of the real layout of the house with minimal furniture and appliances in sight. Here are five of the top reasons why you should engage in home staging before actually having your house listed for sale.
- It spreads a feeling of joy and an idea that property is a home soon to the buyer. Whether it is a town house or a condo you are selling, an empty one is a depressing sight to the prospective buyers. Instead of having them imagine and put their own selves in the feet of the owners, it will not set an idea of a good home. Thus, why would a buyer make a good offer if at first glance, it doesn't set an inviting mood to be their next home?
- It gives an idea of how small or wide a room is. Without anything in it, a buyer will be clueless in differentiating the size of a room even if you give its area measurement. But with some furnishings in it, there will be reference points to at least give them an estimate that this room is actually larger that the other one.
- Home staging helps give more focus on positive details. An empty house initially sets a negative impression. With this, the prospective buyer will tend to focus more on other negative aspects of the house because there is nothing in sight to give pleasure or at least divert his attention to something that can excite his mood. According to home stagers, the dry walls, wall and floor bumps, and even missing details in built-in cabinets and closets tend to be more observed than what could be no big deals should there be eye-candies in the house.
- A well-staged house diverts negative thoughts about the actual reasons behind the selling. While it cannot be avoided that some buyers will actually dig deep into the actual reasons why the seller is letting go of the house, staging can somehow hasten them to speak the idea out. Or at least, they can tame their tongues to somehow choose the right words to extract the answer they want from the owner. according to seller's agents, an empty house typically gives an idea of financial crisis, divorce, and change of environment because of personal problems.
Have an empty house for sale? Don't think twice of having it home staged. It will increase chances of being sold at a faster time frame than you actually thought of.
