How you can sell your home faster with staging

https://www.rockethomes.com/blog/home-selling/how-staging-can-help-you-sell-faster-and-for-more-money

If you want your house to sell fast but aren’t ready to make a big investment, you can opt for staging. It refers to the process of making a home appealing to as many probable buyers as possible. Though there are many ways to stage a home, most involve these three steps.

  1. Get rid of personal items

You need to help your potential buyers visualize living in the home. You can facilitate this by removing all your personal belongings and style – right from your family photos, your kids’ toys, and knick-knacks to anything else from cabinets, drawers and closets, etc. that would remind a potential buyer that someone else is living in the home. You can pack these items in boxes and put them in a rented storage unit.

  1. Create Bright Open Spaces

Most buyers prefer bright open spaces. So, pull back curtains and blinds to let the natural light come in. if there’re some dark corners, consider adding a lamp or two to light them up. If needed, create more open spaces by replacing and/or removing furniture. You can rent newer pieces of furniture for staging your home. You could even rearrange the furniture (moving tables and chairs away from walls, grouping couches, etc.) to optimize space.

  1. Don’t forget the finishing touches

After you have depersonalized the space and made them bright and roomy, add some pops of color with pieces of artwork, accent pillows, a bowl of fresh fruit placed on the kitchen table, etc. Try to use consistent hues in every room to create a lovely aesthetic flow all through the home. For instance, if your home boasts of a neutral color scheme, you can make it feel more vibrant, welcoming, and cohesive by adding two to three bright accent colors in the right areas.

How can staging help?

Staging helps you to showcase your home in the best possible light. With staging, you’ll get:

  • More offers: Making your home look picture-perfect with staging will not only encourage more people to visit your home and be impressed but even bring more offers your way.
  • More money: Some studies show that with staging, a home could attract more offers by up to 10%. Considering that you won’t get a positive ROI (return on investment) with even the most major renovations (such as bathroom or kitchen remodeling), home staging is one of the few options you can use to get a much larger profit from your home’s sale.
  • Faster sales: Staging your home helps it to sit on the market for a lesser time with studies reporting staged homes selling 73% quicker on average. Prospective buyers find professionally staged homes “move-in ready” and “well-maintained”, which encourage them to close the deal fats by making a competitive offer.

How to stage your home to make it sell faster?

You can do it yourself if you’re adept in interior design and have the time and effort to invest in the job. But if you lack the expertise, or don’t have the desire and/or time to get your home in shape, it’s best to hire a professional for staging your home.

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business again.read more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair transaction.read more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
