Positioning your home to appeal to the most buyers, should be a part of your marketing strategy. Owner occupied or vacant, staging transforms both the look and feel of a home, creating a welcoming environment that draws buyers in and makes a lasting impression. Staged homes average 23 days on the market, while those that are not sit on the market an average of 143 days.
Because we love our homes just as they are… comfortable, familiar, and full of great memories, most of us have a hard time looking at them objectively. But when potential buyers enter a house, they lack the imagination to see past everyday clutter. People frequently decide whether they like a home within minutes of entering, so it must make a great first impression. A staging expert can more clearly evaluate strengths and weaknesses and make your home appear more spacious and inviting. Starting at $400.
If you have moved out and the house is vacant, you may have trouble selling for a variety of reasons:
- Empty spaces lack warmth- your house may seem cold and impersonal.
- Buyers tend to focus on flaws/wear & tear in vacant homes because every imperfection is exposed.
- People have a difficult time visualizing how they might use the spaces.
- Older homes look tired and in need of renovation when they are vacant.
- Tract homes lack individuality and style, and this is especially obvious when they are empty.
Staging a vacant home brings it to life! Starting at $1500.
