The Pros and Cons of Staging for Buyers and Sellers
Many buyers come across a house that leaves them asking questions. Why is the house so much more attractive than the others they have seen? What makes this home feel so much more inviting than the others?
Be careful not to give too much value to the decor you come across in certain homes. Think more about the bones of the house, or what’s actually going to be left when you go to buy it. We find a lot of time that buyers are unduly influenced by the emotion that they feel upon walking into a well-staged home.
If you’re on the selling side of things, this is great news. We coach our sellers to make their homes look as good as they possibly can so that buyers are unduly influenced and act on their emotions!
Whether you’re buying or selling, keep in mind how the people on the other side of the transaction think or act. If a house is well-staged, and you’re the buyer, ensure you look past the decor and find out what you like about the layout and other important items. If you’re selling, get your home professionally staged to get buyers excited about your home!
