Sellers probably know that their property needs to be as clean, clutter-free and in as good repair as possible, inside and out. But they can further distinguish their home from the competition by staging a home to sell.
Professional stagers and interior designers are able to see a home as buyers will, and they’ll set the scene so that buyers can imagine living there. They’re likely to simplify or streamline the furniture in a room for better traffic flow and to enhance its spaciousness. They may neutralize a too-personal color scheme or add touches of color or accessories where needed. In vacant homes that feel cold and lack visual landmarks, stagers often bring in rental furniture and create “vignettes,” say, a seating area in front of the fireplace.
Create the wow factor so that when buyers walk in they say, “I better act quickly. This house won’t be on the market for long.”
