For many, the process of selling a home can be a daunting one. Of the many steps involved, waiting for that “for sale” sign to be flipped to “sold” can be the most stressful part. However, there is a solution that is proven to decrease the amount of time your home is on the market, as well as increase the value of your home. Home staging is the preparation of a home to be placed on the real-estate market by professionally furnishing and decorating it to appeal to potential buyers. So, how does it work?
Staging can help buyers imagine themselves in your home.
When a home is full of your sentimental photos, décor and worn-in furniture, it makes envisioning living in that space more difficult for the buyer. Alternatively, when the home is completely empty, it can give off an unappealing and uninviting vibe. At The Zella Company, we utilize pieces that integrate well with the architecture of your home while including trendy elements that will leave potential buyers wanting more.
Staging can help make photos more appealing.
A home stager has the experience and credentials to know exactly how to accentuate the features of your home that have the potential to be high selling points. When these elements are highlighted through photographs on internet listings, it will attract more potential buyers to view your home in person.
Does it really work?
A study from homestagingresource.com found 68 percent of staged homes were sold at 9 percent more than neighboring homes that were unstaged. Recently, Zella staged a home in North Austin that sold before it hit the market—and at higher than asking price! Home staging sells and will not only improve how potential buyers view your home, but also relieve stress from preparing your home for the real-estate market.
