Professional Home Staging: To Do Or Not To Do

It’s safe to say that we are all aware of the housing market we are dealing with today. The question is, do you want to save money or spend money on home staging?

This is a seller’s market so whether you pay for staging or not, your house will most likely sell. But because your home is one of the biggest assets of your life you want the biggest return on your investment. Staging your home professionally maximizes your return since a staged home typically sells for more money.

On that note, Buyers’ realtors reported that 81% of their clients thought that staging their homes helped buyers to imagine living there. That is what good staging seeks to accomplish. Sometimes, buyers even want to keep accessories and furniture in the house they bought because it was so well put together.

Arranging furniture and décor properly can improve the overall look of your space; it can enhance focal points and create an environment where buyers feel relaxed and welcome. You don’t want clutter, mess, or misplaced furniture to distract from the potential or your space.
