All You Need To Know About Home Staging
Your home might be beautiful. Maybe it is immaculate, stylishly fit to suit your tastes or highly upgraded with the finest materials and features. Perhaps it is all of these things. But, unless you are one in a thousand, it is not “staged.” Did you know, staging a home that is about to go for sale is not a new concept, but it is a practice that has gained steam with our more challenging market.
Many home sellers confuse staging with decorating and consequently resist the process and the recommendations of the staging professional. The reality is that the moment you commit to marketing your home for sale, you need to commit to transforming your home into a place that potential buyers can easily picture as their home. In this situation you need to be prepared for emotional detachment.
The primary goal of staging is not to transform your home into the eighth wonder of the world. The best stagers will work with what you have, rearranging and reallocating all of your belongings, in order to present the property in its best light. Sometimes this means reallocating some of those belongings to the garage.
Too often the tendency around staging is to take the process personally, but you shouldn’t. Staging is not a do-it-yourself sport, and only a third party specialist can bring the neutrality and objectivity needed to accomplish the goal. Make no mistake — professional staging is an inconvenience.
Your daily routine will be turned, at least temporarily, on its head. And it can be unsettling as you watch your life rearranged to suit the tastes of others. But if selling your home in the shortest amount of time and for the most money is your goal, it is precisely those “others” who should be your focus. When we consider staging for you, this is not because your home isn’t already beautiful, but simply to make it more unique than others on the market to help you with your sale!
