Staging will give your home the makeover that it needs to bring out its best features and entice buyers. According to some estimates, the few hundred dollars you will spend on staging has the potential to increase the value of your property anywhere from 6% to a whooping 15%.
Staged homes also spend less time on the market. By highlighting the best features of your home, staging helps buyers see the home’s full potential and fall in love with it at first sight.
Staging will create the illusion of space
Experienced stagers know that strategic placement of furniture and ornamental features can make a room appear larger and more spacious. Not to disclose trade secrets, but when buyers are able to stand in one corner of the room and have an unobstructed view of the corner diagonally across from them, they have a visually grander experience of the space.
Staging will emphasize ceiling height
Stagers know that the height of ceilings is one of the features that buyers value highly. By including tall furniture items in a room, stagers not only make the best possible use of vertical space, but also directs the buyer’s gaze upward to create the illusion of height.
Staging will create the best possible lighting
In selecting a home, good lighting tends to be one of the main priorities for buyers. Professional stagers know tricks to maximize the amount of light in a home. Bringing in natural light with transparent window dressings, using mirrors and reflective surfaces to amplify the lighting, and illuminating rooms through strategically placed spotlights will make the home feel brighter and airier.
Staging will focus buyer attention on rooms most important to them
When buyers come into a home, they have a list of priorities in mind. Professional stagers know which rooms are the most important for buyers and prioritize these areas to direct the buyer’s attention. If buyers fall in love with your living room, master bedroom and kitchen, their decision will be made up even before they get to see the rest of the house.
Staging will make your home appear trendier
Professional stagers are artists who follow the latest fashions and trends in interior design. By designing the experience of the space, from the hue of the walls to the fabric of the furniture, stagers are able to infuse spaces with color and style.
Staging will capture the imagination of buyers even before they visit
Buyers often make an impression of the home based on the photos they see online when browsing through available properties. Quite simply, staged homes make for better pictures that entice buyers to visit and explore the home further. Professional stagers know how to decorate the home to create the best possible first impression and appeal to buyers’ taste and aesthetic sensibilities.
