Home staging and styling, especially in the Brisbane property market, are crucial to the final sale price. Here at Sell In Style, we could talk about the importance of home staging for the entire day if someone let us, but today we are going to get you started with this blog post. So, with that being said, we’re not waiting for another second, and we’re jumping in to tell you the importance of home staging.
1. Increase Foot Traffic
This is where the domino effect begins. When you’ve made the all-important decision to have your home staged, you’ll end up with a good-looking property that people are naturally interested in. From this, you then create an increase in foot traffic, which then translates to increased marketability. When you walk into a beautifully furnished and staged home, it makes it easy for potential buyers to see themselves and their furniture in the space. Your marketability is how well your home will appeal to the buyers around you. So making the investment to have your home staged can seem costly; that investment can add from 5% to 10% to the final sale price. See, we told you it’s a domino effect.
2. Reduce Time On The Market
No one wants their home to sit on the market for longer than it needs to. But, if you’ve been through the process of selling a home before, you understand how frustrating it can be. It can feel like a waste of time, drawn out for way too long.
By having your home staged, our team will create a visual that will appeal to the target market of buyers. We work with you through a property briefing process that informs furniture choices. From this information, we can create staging that appeals to potential buyers. This means they have a clear visual of them in the home, resulting in less time spent on the market.
3. Evoke Emotion
Picture this. You walk into a home with nothing in it. Just the bones. Can you visualise yourself living there in the future? Or someday, making dinner in that kitchen? Hmm, not really? Staging is a way of communicating to your potential buyers that your home could eventually be theirs. It’s a way of creating that picture in their head that it’s not a house they’re buying but a home. It also evokes the emotion of making a space warm and cosy, which humans associate with a home. Without these friendly and familiar elements, getting buyers in the right frame of mind to make a purchase decision can be difficult—home staging tugs on their emotions in all the right ways.
