Can Staging Really Sell a Home Faster?

80396 Pebble_HR_120Ever wonder what kind of home in the Desert Area brings the most interest, get top dollar, and sells the quickest?

It may be a staged home.

Neutralize:  Most people think that staging is about   decorating, this is not the case.  You are trying to appeal to the average buyer and if they make an emotional attachment to your home they will see themselves living there.  This is often missed and is a BIG part of staging.

Declutter:  By rearranging or storing furniture, thinning out your closets, and reducing the things on your bookshelf can change a room.  To much clutter in a room will prevent a buyer from seeing the beauty of the room or it’s size.

Remove Distractions:  You want to buyer to see your home and not your things so by storing your collections and family pictures a buyers won’t feel like they are invading your space.  Also, don’t forget to store anything that may seem offensive for example something religious, political, guns, or animal trophies hanging on the wall.

Rejuvenate:  By putting a fresh coat of neutral paint on the walls, washing windows, or replacing worn out fixtures can go a long way.  A buyer sees these as something they have to replace and may start to subtract from your asking price or if it think it is to much they could walk away.  Buyers want a move-in ready homes.
