Staging your home to sell
Many home sellers wonder if home staging makes a difference. In my experience, especially in the current market, it certainly makes a difference in how much buyers are willing to offer for your home. Some simple home staging tips can make your home sell faster and for more money.
What is home staging?
Home staging is the process of improving the visual appeal of your home when you are preparing it for sale. Making your home “show ready” can be simple, such as decluttering and depersonalizing your home. Depending on the decor of your home, home staging may require some painting to make the colors more neutral or doing renovations to update it and make it more modern and appealing to home buyers.
Which rooms should I focus my home staging efforts on?
According to the NAR (National Association of Realtors) 2021 home staging study, buyers found staging the living room to be the most appealing to them. The second room where staging is most important is the master bedroom and third was staging the kitchen. Home staging makes it easier for buyers to view the property as their future home. Although this may seem like extra work, the end result will be worth it. Your home will sell more quickly and put more money in your pocket.
