Whether it’s brand new or many years old, an empty house is cold and uninviting, difficult to imagine how to place furnishings, appears smaller, and the imperfections of the home will be heightened.
Are you trying to sell a vacant home? This can be a very stressful time. Even though no one is living in the property, the utilities, taxes, and mortgage still need to be paid. In many cases the sellers have moved to a different location and quite often have bought another home. Buyers tend to assume that they can get a deal on vacant homes because they know the owners may be more desperate and motivated to sell. It is especially important to furnish vacant homes to capitalize on their potential and enhance the perception of their worth.
Purchasing a home is a huge step for most people. It involves a lot of money and it has to feel like “the right fit.” A home needs to tap into the buyer’s emotions and motivate them to make an offer. A vacant home just won’t do that.
Don’t let your home sit empty any longer. Let me help you make arrangements to rent quality furniture and accessories to make your home come alive in photos for your online listing. Act now and get it sold so you can move on with your life. The short term investment in home staging is less than a price reduction and will be a great return on investment for you the seller.
If you are a property developer, you will understand that a home sitting on the market for an extended time will severely impact your bottom line. Let us stage your property and help you get top dollar from your investment. Buyers are not looking for a house; they are looking for a home. It just makes sense to use furnishings and accessories to provide them with that vision and get that emotional response when they walk in the door.
The home does not have to be completely furnished but we recommend that the main areas (at least) look “lived in”. Staging can create that emotional connection and make potential home buyers fall in love. And don’t forget the curb appeal. If they aren’t attracted to the outside, you will have a much harder time selling the inside.
Don’t leave your potential buyers COLD. Be sure you’re making the best first impression…you most likely won’t get a second chance! Staging with Makes Sense Home Staging and Redesign is the way to go from the start. Don’t wait until your house sits on the market for months. Contact me now to get the most out of your sale and move on with your life.
