When a homeowner decides to stage their house before putting it on the market, the focus usually is how it will benefit them, their market price and time on the market.
The truth is, home staging has many benefits to a buyer as well.
The top 4 ways when a sellers stages his home and it benefits buyers are:
1. A professionally staged home shows the buyer the potential of the home, room by room. It helps them to visualize not only how to use a room (purpose) but it helps them and shows them the best furniture layout within the space and to see the best use of the space.
2. A staged home that is well prepared, allows a buyer to see the house as well maintained. When a buyer feels the house is well maintained and looks appealing, a buyer is more comfortable offering their best price. Buyers are willing to pay more for a home that appears to have been taken well care of.
3. A staged home will stand out from those that may not be staged giving buyers an emotional connection to the house. A buyer will decide within 15 seconds of walking through the front door whether or not that home would suit their needs. When a home is staged properly, it helps buyers to connect emotionally.
4. Many times buyers are not prepared financially to make improvements on a new home when they usually end up spending the maximum amount they can to purchase a home. Typically, buyers will also choose a house they consider move in ready over those that are not.
Remember, staging will always benefit the homeowner with selling at the highest price in the shortest amount of time, it will benefit a buyer to see the potential of their investment, and it will benefit the real estate agent by satisfying their clients.
