Today we’re taking a closer look at home staging and how you can use it to help you sell your home faster and for more money. When done right, home staging can turn around the sale of a property that otherwise isn’t moving because of its online listing photos.
In fact, the National Association of Realtors discovered that 40% of buyers were more likely to get in the car and view a property because it was staged. Additionally, 31% of those buyers were willing to increase their offer by 1% to 5% because a home was staged. Here are a few top home staging tips:
1. Move your furniture to create a better layout.
2. Use home decor and accessories to bring a room together.
3. Declutter. As a general rule of thumb, you want to remove at least ⅓ of the items in a given room. This goes double for kitchens and bathrooms.
