The Redlands CA real estate market continues to deliver strong results. If you’re looking to sell and want to get the best outcome possible, we recommend staging your home. What is staging, and how can it improve sales outcomes? We’re glad you asked!
A Brief Definition
Most people know that it’s important to freshen up a home before putting it on the market. A fresh coat of paint, a new roof, or some new landscaping are common pre-market improvements. The idea here is to make the home as attractive as possible to prospective buyers.
Staging takes this principle much further. A professional home stager will come into your home and make it look as attractive as possible. This can involve temporary “staged” furniture and décor items as well as cleaning and decluttering. There are degrees of staging, and a fully staged home will look like the ones you see on those home shows on TV.
How Staging Improves Sales Outcomes
Homes that are staged typically sell faster. Often they sell for a bit more, too. Why is this? It’s simple. Buyers don’t want to buy your house, with your stuff and pictures of your grandma on the wall. They want to buy a house that they can make theirs.
Staging a home de-personalizes it and presents it as the best that it could be. Prospective buyers see what the house could be when they move in, instead of what it is right now. It’s not hard to see why this results in quicker sales at higher prices: you’ve motivated the buyer in a special way.
