Every year, thousands of homeowners preparing to sell their house are probably asking themselves this very same question. “Is staging worth it?” Making the time, effort, and spending some cash to stage your home for market is a tough decision for many, but should it be?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…“Selling a home is the single largest financial transaction the average homeowner will ever take part in. So why wouldn’t you make every possible effort to ensure your own success?”
Would you go to an important job interview dressed in wrinkled up sweat pants and a dirty old t-shirt? Probably…hopefully…not! Because the way you present yourself is a reflection of who you are, and the image you want to project in a job interview is likely not that of a disheveled bum who doesn’t give two beans about their own appearance.
The fact is, most of us would put in the time and effort, and perhaps even invest in a new suit, shiny new pair of shoes, or even a spiffy new haircut. Why? Because we want to look the part and impress those meeting us for the very first time. “I’m the total package! Buy me!”
Putting your house on the market is like one gigantic job interview and that’s the exact same impression you want your house to give potential buyers. “I’m the total package! Buy me!”
While your house may or may not even check off all the ‘must-have’s’ for buyers, presentation is everything! Buyers are frequently willing to overlook a few negatives and/or even let go of a few ‘must-haves’ for a home that “WOW’S” them everywhere else!
Just like you and that spiffy new haircut, a house that presents itself well is more apt to grab and hold a buyer’s attention. Staging your home to sell is a reflection of the entire package and displays a well-maintained persona that potential buyer’s find very attractive. Anything you can do to meet or better yet, surpass their expectations of the perfect house is most certainly going to work in your favor!
