Selling Your Home- Furnished or Vacant ?

By
Real Estate Agent with The Overton Group, LLC Pitt & Carteret County NC 213723 Broker

I love home decor...and as a Realtor I get the perks of seeing homes beautifully furnished.

Someone asked me recently "does a vacant home hurt a sale ? " 

Good question !

Some buyers are not "visual" or able to see themselves in a home with their furniture unless they can see a home furnished to confirm it can fit their big bed or big sofa.

I remind buyers that the furnishings are not coming with the house so if the seller is decorating traditional it doesn't mean the house wont look great with craftsman or coastal.

Touring a vacant home can be better for others as they will walk through a room pointing out where their pieces will fit. They can visualize.

So, to answer-- everyone is different !


In this photo is a full brick wall ( not just fireplace). I love this photo ! 

 

brickwall
It is current with modern colors and by painting that brick focal wall it brightens the room but still gives the texture and shows off the fireplace. This more than likely is an older home where buyer envisioned that wall white and fresh neutrals ( gray and beige) to make the room feel bigger and brighter. 


My point:

When buying, take into consideration dimensions of a room, then look at it from a fresh view point- different paint maybe, or flooring.. new fan or removal of heavy drapes or too much clutter.

This could be your dream home you just weren't "seeing it " due to the way the owners live in it . 
I'd love to help you explore Greenville NC homes !

Good afternoon Michele - it does depend but I think that staged room, color and all, is a winner.

You make a good point about certain buyers who need the visualization of seeing furniture in a room, to confirm their furniture will fit.

The answer as always: depends. If it is a high end property, i'd highly recommend to stage it.
