Staging your home is one of the most important steps to getting your property ready for the market. Buyers build faster and stronger connections with spaces in which they can see themselves living and thriving. The process of home staging quite literally sets the stage for prospective buyers to envision the possible lifestyles your space has to offer.
For most sellers, the cost of professional home staging pays for itself (and then some) in return on investment. But if you’re not completely sold on the idea, a home staging consultation can help you focus your DIY efforts to produce the best results.
Here are a few of the ways home sellers can benefit from consulting with a staging expert:
1) Objectively evaluate the appeal of your property.
The emotional connection you have with your home makes it difficult for you to view it from a buyer’s perspective and determine what needs to be changed. A quick consultation with a professional home stager will help you pinpoint what in your home needs fixing, decluttering, reorganizing, and redesigning. They’ll give you objective critique that will help you stage your home for maximum appeal.
2) Get personalized designer tips for enhancing your space.
Basic staging rules and tips from the Internet are great for DIY stagers—but they can only take you so far. Every space is unique, which means there are staging strategies specific to your space that will take it to the next level for prospective buyers. In consulting with a home staging professional, you’ll get the customized advice you need to improve your individual space for your particular buyer’s market.
3) See where you’re at before you commit to a full staging service.
A home staging consultation will help you get a better idea of whether or not you can pull off staging your space on your own (or with just a few expert pointers). A quick conversation with a specialist provides you with an objective assessment of where your space stands now, as well as exact instruction for what you need to do to get it to the level it should be. From there, you can decide whether you’re capable of doing the work yourself, or if bringing in an expert will be worth the investment.
