Preparing to sell your home can be a great deal of work. There are many factors at play, and it’s easy to skim over important steps. However, when you stage your home for viewing, it’s essential to pay attention to detail so you can make the best possible impression on prospective buyers. 

Why is staging a home important?

When you are prepping your home for sale, you want to depersonalize the space as much as possible. This way, when potential buyers visit the property, they can imagine themselves living there instead of you. Studies have even shown that when a professional stager gets a property ready for viewing, the home is statistically sold faster. 

How do I stage my home while living in it?

It is possible to stage your home for sale without taking a vacation. First, get rid of any unnecessary clutter. A clean space is always more appealing. It’s best to depersonalize the area, so visitors can better imagine themselves in the home. 

When prepping for professional photos and viewings, store away personal items, like photos or hobby collections. The goal is to make the space as inviting as possible for people interested in purchasing a home. 

Why do staged houses sell faster?

Staged homes sell faster because it allows buyers to picture their lives within the space. Since staging the home tends to lead to more offers, it also gives home sellers the chance to potentially make more on the sale. More potential buyers means competitive offers. 

Consider speaking with your real estate agent to learn more about home staging to get your home ready for prospective buyers.
