Why Staging Your Home For Sale Is So Important

First impressions generally impact our decision-making. Therefore, a properly staged home usually has a better chance of selling at a higher price than one that hasn’t. Here are 4 reasons you should consider staging your home for sale.

Staged Living Room

Sell Faster for a Higher Price

Effective staging will help sellers get their home sold quicker, for a higher price.  Although it’s hard to estimate how much, sellers who stage their homes often sell for a higher price than homes that are not staged. 

When a home is shown in its best light, buyers are excited to imagine themselves living there. When potential buyers can see themselves living in your home, they will be motivated to make a competitive offer.

That Certain “Je Ne Sais Quoi”

A euphemism to express a desirable trait about something that can’t be explained, simply put, staged homes just look more appealing.

Stagers know how to professionally present homes attractively, appealing to a broader spectrum of buyers. Also, professional photos of a staged home are likely to draw more interest online.  

A Place for Everything and Everything in it’s Place

Personal clutter can often hinder a potential buyer’s ability to visualize themselves living in a home. Staging and depersonalizing a home allows buyers to objectively view the property, so that they can see themselves in the space.

A professional stager will help sort out what things need to be packed and stored away to make your home feel more spacious, clean, and organized.  If you can live without it while you are trying to sell, it should be packed now.

A Great First Impression

Do not underestimate the value of a great first impression. This starts the minute buyers enter the driveway.  Not only will stagers evaluated the inside of your home, they will also assess what needs to be done outside to create great curb appeal.


A REALTOR’S® Guide to Better Landscaping

When it comes to Listing and Selling for top dollar, landscaping is an opportunity to show off pride of ownership and a chance to create a positive first impression for potential buyers. 

Consider these four budget-and curb-friendly tips to upgrade your home’s Curb Appeal:

  1. Get Gardening – A home with just a basic lawn will need a little help to create interesting, modern curb appeal.  Consider adding a well organized flower bed.  Perennials and shrubbery, are a cost effective way to achieve this.  Take a picture of the space you are considering planting your bed and bring it with you when you head to your local nursery.  The specialists there will be able to help you select the right plants for your bed size, and zone.  Consider, the mature size of these plants as well as proper spacing.  Plant in uneven numbers, and consider symmetry when planning your bed.  It helps to draw out the bed with pen and paper and have have a planned layout.
  2. Lawn-care, Weeding & Pruning – Overgrown and patchy lawns are unsightly and are often an easy fix with seed and feed.  Set up a water sprinkler and get growing. Any weeds coming up in lawns, cracks, flower beds or bushes, need to be removed. Consider using landscaping fabric for extra protection against unwanted weeds. Overgrown trees, hedges, and shrubs block light, look unkept, and affect the overall look of your home. Use a good pair of sheers or a hedge trimmer to shape and trim back overgrown plants.  It’s like giving your greenery a hair cut.

  3. Bed Edging – Edging is a great way to define your garden beds. To achieve the look, grab an edger and create clean curves and lines around your beds.  Consider adding fresh mulch or other bed defining materials such as beach pebble to really make your property pop.

  4. Planters – Another cost effective way to add a pop of colour, and curb appeal is through the placement of colourful annual planters.  Keep them deadheaded and watered and potential buyers will be delighted when they arrive.
