Staging a Home That Buyers Will LOVE This Valentine’s Day

Home staging is about creating a love connection between the property and potential buyers. As the home seller, you have a HUGE advantage: a perfectly targeted, captive audience and an opportunity to make multiple good impressions! Most buyers who come to your house are good prospects. They are actively shopping for the product you are selling, and if they’ve made it inside your front door, your house probably already meets their general criteria.

Each room gives you, the seller, the perfect opportunity to make dozens of first impressions. It’s critical that those first impressions are good ones! Most buyers have trouble seeing past overdone, older, mismatched decor, unusual smells, dirty carpets, and strong paint colors. If the property isn’t in move-in ready condition, they will go down the street and purchase a similar house that is.

Before staging, this high-end home was dark, cave-like and uninviting. Buyers won’t linger long in an environment like this.

Conversely, a home that is open, updated, inviting, that looks and smells fresh and cared for subconsciously invites buyers to visualize themselves living in it!

This is why home staging is critical! By removing clutter, depersonalizing, creating warmth and cohesion — in short, staging the home — you have the power to move the buyer from looking at your house to evaluating whether it could be their home.

A little staging went a long way on this property! We lightened, brightened, and re-arranged to create an open, spacious feeling that will leave buyers saying, “Yes! This is it! This is the one!”

 

Remember — buyers visit a home for logical reasons (it’s in the right neighborhood, it has enough bedrooms and bathrooms, it’s close to work). But they make OFFERS based on EMOTION!
