Can you imagine this scenario – walking into a house that you would potentially be interested in buying, just to see a wide expanse of nothing? No furniture and décor, no pizazz to show off the style of the property. You likely would not want to continue on to see the rest of the house. Even if you follow through and look at everything, chances are that you are not going to purchase it.
On the other side of the coin, what if you did the same when showing potential buyers your property? Many individuals and families do not truly see the importance in fully staging a house when they put it on the market. However, it can serve as a major benefit when it comes to getting people to consider putting in a bid.
Staging is the act of putting into place a carefully designed array of furniture, plants, portraits and various other décor in order to hold an open house or private showing of a residential property. It is crucial to keep in mind the structural style and image that you would like to project. The goal of doing this is to get the future homeowner to imagine himself or herself in that space. It evokes dreams, desires, and a general feeling of happiness in the house. When done with care, a staging will set a mental scene in the person’s mind, and make him or her want to live there. You want the space to look as though it has been lived in, like it has a personality and charm of its own.
