When it comes to selling your home, you need to make sure it shows well- even BEFORE the sign goes up. Most sellers understand the concept of home staging but many aren’t completely sure how it works. Here are the answers to some of your home staging FAQ’s:
1. When should I stage my home?
First impressions are very important. So, make sure you prepare your home before it is listed.
Most of today’s buyers start their search on the internet, so your home needs to have a distinct winning appeal to attract potential buyers to come view your home in person. Don’t miss any opportunities to appeal to buyers.
2. How long does staging take?
The staging process can take as little as a couple of days or as long as a week or more. This depends on the level of improvements required. Completing the required staging job, based on time and budget, will help get your home sold quickly and for the best price.
3. What does staging cost?
The cost of staging is different for every home. It can range from $500 – $4000 or more depending on what is required to make your home market ready. If you decide to list your home with the Pilon Group, we set you up for a staging consultation completely on us. This consultation will help you to maximize your space and emphasize beautiful features of your home. We can also help you spend wisely by determining what upgrades and repairs will bring you the best return on your investment.
4. Does staging guarantee that my home will sell?
Staging creates an exceptional opportunity to sell your home but it does NOT guarantee it. Once you decide to sell your home, it then becomes a product on the market. On average, a well staged home sells faster than a home requiring upgrades and improvements. Making sure your home appeals to potential buyers will help it sell for the best possible price.
5. What are my top three priorities?
When it comes to selling your home, you should focus completing any repairs and necessary upgrades. De-cluttering, de-personalizing, and furniture placement goes a long way and will allow buyers to see themselves living in your home.
Painting walls a neutral colour will allow buyers to move in before deciding what colour they want to paint their new home. Neutral doesn’t have to mean boring. Include texture, layering, lighting, then add a pop of colour to the room with pictures, pillows and accessories.
