Four Reasons to Stage Home Before Selling

Why should you stage your home before selling it

“If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters daydreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.” –Gaston Bachelard

According to Barbara Corcoran, home staging is no longer optional. Today, it is seen as a necessity in selling a house.

Staging your home before selling has become a necessity
In competitive real estate market, staging your home before selling it has
become a necessity, if you are to succeed in selling your home.

With today’s competitive real estate market, she could not be any more spot on in her assessment. Indeed, staging a house is now a paramount process if you wish your homes to fetch a competitive price and successfully sell in a robust but competitive real estate market. This endeavor might not be an easy task and it would certainly consume a lot of your time, but know that it would all be worth it. Furthermore, you have to take into account your budget as staging your house would require you to fork in some cash.

After you have calculated your projected expense, determine whether it would really be worth it and if it would make a difference. In any case, whether you have a Philippines condo for sale or an existing house and lot to stage, here are some of the reasons why staging your home would be necessary:

1. You will increase your chances of making a sale

Staging homes would be construed as an extended form of effort by the seller themselves. Why? Because it is not really necessary and it is done mainly for the benefit of the buyer. In this regard, your buyers would then see you as a seller who would take the extra mile just to ensure that they are selling a topnotch property to their prospective buyers. Furthermore, if you wish your properties to fetch a higher price, staging it would not only be a viable option, but a necessary one. After all, if you wish to give your homes the highest price possible, then the property must justify it. With that in mind, you should portray it in the best possible light.

Present your home at its best with staging it
When you are selling your home it's only natural that you wish to attract the
the highest market price for it, so present your home at its best.

2. It gives your buyers the impression of a well-maintained home

Buyers take mental notes when they are surveying a home or condo in Makati for the first time. They make observations on various levels. Apart from wishing to feel comfortable inside the home, they would be a little meticulous about how well you have been taking care of it as well. While structural aspects such as the size, number of rooms and layout are imperative elements to consider that does not mean that the true condition of the home can be easily overlooked. If you staged your home cleverly, it will tell your prospective buyers that you have maintained it well. So with that in mind, start fixing what is broken, apply cosmetic touches and ensure that your homes are in tip-top shape.

3. Gives you a head start on packing

Packing up and sorting your belongings would be inevitable before you make the move. So, you might as well start now. One critical aspect of home staging is to ensure that the home is devoid of personal effects that tend to distract prospective buyers from envisioning themselves in your home. This would mean packing away your belongings and removing any and all of the clutter from the premises. If you do an efficient job in staging your home, then you can expect your moving day to come without a hitch. At the very least, you can count on having fewer stuff to pack up at the last minute.

Stage your home garden, too, for best effect

Every bit around your home counts when it comes to making an impression to
potential buyers, including your home garden and backyard.

4. It makes your homes seem larger

One purpose in staging homes is to make it seem bigger than it originally is. After all, home staging has a lot to do with space. In this regard, removing clutter is not only necessary, but a must and you must strategically arrange the furniture in such a way that it would be able to maximize the available space within the house without diminishing it. Furthermore, as you begin staging each room, you would then pay apt attention to the flow of each room which means you will be a lot more logical in your approach in arranging a room.

Once you are done, you might even surprise yourself at the sheer size of your rooms and how seemingly big your house seems once you have removed the clutter and appropriately placed the furniture. From there, you can expect to elicit a positive reaction from your buyers. After all, spacious house would always fare better in the real estate market than ones that feel crowded and cramped.
