Why You Should Use a Professional Home Stager
Many people are initially hesitant about having their home professionally staged and styled prior to sale. It is often a busy and hectic time when having something else to think about can seem like too much to handle.
But making use of home staging services such as In-Situ Furniture Presentation actually makes the process of selling a property a much quicker and more successful undertaking than going it alone.
Here are four reasons why you need to use a professional home staging and styling service:
1. Professional skills will get you a professional result
Presenting your home in the best possible light for sale is very different to presenting your home for a dinner party. Or a family birthday. Or to enjoy the company of friends. Your home is a personal place.
However, when it comes time to sell those personal effects can inadvertently put some buyers off. Rather than push away buyers, professional expertise will ensure your home is expertly presented and your return is maximised.
2. Use your head, not your heart
Often times selling a family home can be an emotional experience. The place where family memories were formed is being left.
This emotion can often cloud our decision making when it comes to the business of selling a home for the best price possible. Use someone with a trained and objective eye to make your place look amazing, and free yourself from the complications of emotional attachments.
3. Visual appeal is everything!
We live in a visual world. The old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words still holds true and people are making judgments about your property based upon what they see.
You might have an agent that can talk your place up like no-one else. That is perfect for closing a deal. But what if the prospective buyer never gets that far because they flick past your home and onto the dozens of others you’re competing with on the market. Make the most of your opportunity to sell for the highest price you can with the services of In-Situ Furniture Presentation.
4. Put your buyer in their new home
A professional property stager will make it as easy as possible for a prospective buyer to see themselves living in their new home - the home you are selling! This is very important. Consider these incredible statistics:
- According to a 2010 study, staged properties consistently spend 78% less time on the market than non-staged properties. Less time on the market, higher price and less costs to you.
- A 2006 research study found that 63% buyers would pay more for a property that was ready to move in. Staging shows them a home that can be lived in.
It makes smart economic sense to engage the services of a professional home stagers and styler.
The quicker you sell your home, the more you will sell it for. The higher the demand for your property, the quicker it will sell.
