When you are selling a home staging is a very important aspect that many people overlook. Once you are done with the rehab, giving the house a ‘model home’ look is going to help sell the home quickly and sell it for top dollar.
It is true that staging a home properly is going to cost some money. This is an investment in the transaction, though, and if done properly will provide a very high return on investment. This can happen in a couple different ways.
First, staging a home properly will help it sell for top dollar. People are making an emotional decision when buying a home most of the time. If a home looks great and has that model home feel, it is going to help you get top dollar for the property. Secondly, by giving the home this feel you are also going to sell the home more quickly, and we all know that time is money.
Think about clothing. Clothes make a big difference on how people appear to us. Think back to any make-over show or pictures you have seen. Everyone has seen these tremendous transformations that occur, taking a plain looking person and turning them into a model. They did not change people, it is the same person, but with different clothes, hair, make up maybe. The same goes for a home you want to sell. Give it a full makeover and watch the offers come in.
