Selling or buying a property has been perceived as one of the most stressful things a person can do. When it comes to selling, it can be even worse trying to manage everything that is required to get the best price for your property. With the stresses of everyday life, for most people there is little time left in their day to do what is required to ensure that their property looks the best that it can for showings and potential buyers. In addition to a lack of time, is a lack of expertise in design elements required to showcase the home.
This is where professional home staging services come in handy, as they provide a highly affordable way to get both a second opinion on what your home needs to sell and also a sales-focused makeover that ensures a property looks attractive to the demographic that will most likely buy it. It is not uncommon for realtors to be able to add thousands dollars for properties that have been home-staged when compared to those that have not.
Professional home staging services are like taking your car for a luxury valet the day before you sell it. It is like selling anything really; the best way to get more money for something is to make it look like new. Home staging adds an important emotional connection between your home and potential buyers which instantly adds value to your property and turns it from a run of the mill property on the real estate market, to an exclusive once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a dream home.
When home owners and realtors consider selling a property, often the last thing that is thought about is home staging. However, the truth is that by hiring the services of a professional home staging company, home owners can reduce the burden of selling their home significantly and by not having to worry about the stresses of getting their house ready for sale, they can spend more time focusing on the things that really matter. While there will still be an element of preparation required, a good home stager will be able to advise on exactly what needs done to ensure that your property gets the attention it deserves.
Using their inventory of high impact rental furnishings, professional home staging companies use furniture like artists use paint. Turning previously dreary properties into real estate masterpieces, they can literally transform your home overnight for a fraction of the cost it would normally take compared to purchasing new fixtures, fittings and furniture. In addition, studies conducted demonstrate that staged homes sell twice as fast as un-staged homes, and at a higher price. Consider home staging your insurance policy for ensuring you receive your best price.
