The Importance of Home Staging

When you are selling your home, you want to make sure that it is in impeccable condition. Your house should be in good order to impress potential buyers. If your home is messy or unkempt, you will find it a harder sell. Interested buyers will assume that there are other important aspects of the home that have not been maintained as well.

To many sellers, it seems like common sense, but it is not unusual to underestimate the significance of preparing your home for sale. Your take on comfort and charm may not translate to another person’s tastes, and for this reason, the role of home staging has continued to grow in importance. 

Why Home Stage?

When people walk through a home, they want to be able to use their imagination. Strategically staging your home to make it look  neutral and attractive can speed up the sale of your house. Believe it or not, careful placement and updating of furniture – even by renting accent pieces – can not only sell your home quicker but may allow you to increase your asking price.

When the Victoria Carter team recommends a home stager, we are not criticizing your layout or your home. We are simply using proven placement strategies and offering suggestions on how you can maximize the value of your home.
