When searching for a home, the photography can make or break a potential buyer’s interest in the property. And when a potential buyer steps into a house, staging can be critical in helping them imagine a property as their home. Luckily, there is much you can do as a homeowner to spruce up your house and make it more warm & appealing. We believe staging is a key component of marketing your home, and thought we’d share some of our tips with you.
Below are some examples of staging vacant homes.
To draw attention to the fireplace — the focal point of the room — we showcase the mantle & built-in shelving around it with pops of a mirror, pops of greenery & other home decor.
Pops of color warm up an empty kitchen — from fresh flowers, to a wine rack & wall decorations.
An empty bathroom lights up with colorful linens, a basket & silver glass pieces. Just a few items of color & shine can make a room more appealing.
Don’t forget the exterior of the home! For this backyard, we added bright cushions & an umbrella, staging it with wine glasses, flowers & a candle to look extra inviting!
Three things to remember:
1. You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.
2. A review of over 2,800 properties in 8 cities found that staged homes, on average, sold in half the time that non-staged homes did.
3. Most buyers make decisions about the property they see within the first 15 seconds of entering a home.
