SIMPLE STEPS FOR HOME STAGING
When in doubt take it out. The old saying, “less is more” is telling when getting your home in tip top shape to present to the market and potential buyers. According to the National Association of Realtors, for every $100 invested in staging, the potential return is $400. … “A staged home will sell for 17% more on average than a non-staged home, and 95% of staged homes sell in 11 days or less. That is statistically 87% faster than non-staged homes.” Why you ask? The psychology behind it suggests that our minds are not able to focus on the home. When there is an overwhelming number of collectibles and furniture, our mind gets distracted. We are not able to focus on the home and its functionality.
How do I start you may ask? Create three piles, one for keepsakes, one for donations and one for landfill. Be sure for pack the keepsakes away and remove the donations and landfill items before taking next steps of furniture placement.
