What Exactly Is Home Staging?
Home staging is the art of preparing homes for sale in such a way as to appeal to potential buyers and generate higher selling home prices. When you contract professional staging services, you are usually working with a professional who has years of experience staging homes and/or with interior design.
In a nutshell, we furnish and decorate your personal family residence (or rental property) so that it is most attractive to potential buyers.
But why do homes need to be “staged” anyway?
The Importance of Home Staging
Homes that are staged with the intent to sell can achieve up to 20% higher sales prices than unstaged homes, according to a 2019 National Association of Realtors (NAR) report. Why is this? It’s ultimately because unpersonalized homes sell better than personalized ones.
A house becomes a home when you fill it with family photos, personal items, and things that are important to you. Interior design involves a lot of personalization and it is very individualized to each family. But, the truth is that buyers don’t really want to buy someone else’s personalized home.
Buyers don’t want to to buy your home, they want to buy their own future home. This is where professional home staging comes into play.
In order for a house-for-sale to be most attractive to potential buyers, it needs to be depersonalized a little bit. At First Impression Home Staging, we know exactly how to make that happen
When we stage your home, we will find the most trendy, realistic, and unpersonalized way to present your home so that it appeals to buyers. This will likely involve changing out the art and furniture to be in line with trends and styles that current buyers are looking for. The purpose of this is to stage your house in a way that buyers will be able to envision themselves living in the home, then they’ll want to pay a premium for it.
Why Work with Us?
We are licensed and insured home stagers and we will work with you and your real estate professional to achieve a successful home sale together. We won’t steamroll your house or kick your family out, but we will find ways to work with you to make your home as attractive as you know it can be. Our extensive collection of furniture and home art that we have access to will be at your disposal for staging your home.
Ultimately, our staged homes sell faster than homes that aren’t staged. If you’re looking to sell your home faster and at a premium price, don’t skip this step.
Frequently Asked Questions
As a general rule, home sellers are the ones who pay to have their home staged. Occasionally, real estate professionals will pay for a staging consultation as a perk of working with them, but the majority of the cost usually falls on the seller. Consider an investment that enables you to sell your house faster and/or for a higher price.
Interior design is what home buyers implement in order to personalize their home to fit their personal style. Home staging is what home sellers implement in order to depersonalize their home so that it can appeal to a wider range of buyers, and not just their own personal style.
Almost every home that is being sold could benefit from staging services. For homes that will be vacant or mostly empty during the selling process, staging services are HIGHLY recommended. A buyer needs to be able to envision your property as a home and not just an empty house. That’s why staged homes sell 30% faster according a National Association of Realtors study.
Fully-furnished homes can also benefit from staging. If you will be living in the home that you are putting on the market, a staging consultant can help you make small adjustments to the interior design and layout of the home to make it look more attractive to potential buyers. Getting an expert’s eye on your home and taking their advice during this stage of the process can pay off in a big way when you sell your home at a higher price.
As a general rule, you can use your own furniture for home staging. If you have a fully-furnished home you can request an “occupied home” staging service where the stagers arrange your furniture in a way that will be most attractive to prospective buyers. They may also supplement your furniture with some rented pieces.
At our company, we offer this type of staging through our “Occupied Home” house staging service. If you already have great furniture in the home you’re selling, we’d love to work with you.
