How Staging A Home Helps it to Sell Faster [Video]

If you are trying to sell your home, there are companies that buy houses, however, presentation can make all the difference. You always hear about “location, location, location,” but no matter where your house is, if it’s messy, cluttered or if you have your kitchen set up as a home office, it just isn’t going to sell. Staging is an integral part of selling. Furniture that makes the home look spacious and comfortable is what you need to consider. Depending upon your budget, you can go for reproduction antiques (newly made items that are created with the look and feel of antiques) or the real deal. Actual Chinese antiques are going to increase your budget, but if you have the money, at least spring for a few real antiques. Pick one or two major focal items and go from there. For example, you could buy an antique armoire or dressing cabinet, and based on its style and coloring, you could add reproduction pieces to the room to finish off the look.An antique vanity or a reproduction vanity would be a good addition to a corner of your bedroom. A small Tibetan square table or two could act as bedside tables or night stands. Add some Buddhist statues and artwork to put some finishing touches on the antique look of your bedroom. Here you can buy a antique bedside tables.

Here’s one of the main reasons we’re going to need a lot of staging. We’ve
got so many big and open spaces. Here’s our formal living room. Over here
we’ve got a huge formal dining, and we’ve already started to put a bunch of
furniture here into this giant master.

Go to a furniture showroom and look for something that might fit the bill. When the furniture is new, and matches the place nicely, a person can tell and will make a note which should positively impact their decision.

Let’s not forget the outside. Do you need some new landscaping? Watch the video below on How Staging A Home Helps it to Sell Faster.

Anton: Hey, what’s going on everyone? Anton Stetner here with the Real
Estate Solutions Group. I’ve just pulled up to this beautiful property over
here in Redmond. We’re gong to take a look inside here in just a second.
What today we’re going to talk about is why it’s important to stage
properties and how just a little bit of staging, or in this case actually a
lot of staging, can totally bring out what’s happening with the property.

In this case right here, we’ve got this beautiful, huge, over 5,000 square
foot house that we’re going to be staging. This home is very large, so
that’s one of the reasons we’re going to be staging it. We don’t want it to
feel cavernous. We want people to feel comfortable living in the space and
seeing how they would occupy it. Let’s go inside and kind of check it out.

So here we are in the family room beforehand. I’ve got the kitchen over
here and, like I said, we’re going to be going through. We’re going to be
staging this whole thing. The staging and the putting together of this
property actually came in multiple steps. You should have seen the
landscaping when we first showed up, and now everything just looks
beautiful. It’s got the nice line. All of the shrubs have been trimmed
back.

The sellers really did such a phenomenal job of getting this backyard here
ready. Just case in point, right here we’ve got this beautiful little path.
It goes up to this multi-levels, and one of the things about this path,
man, when we first got here, you see that tree right there? That tree was
hanging so far over the path because the tenants weren’t taking care of
this property as much as the previous or the current owners were, just
extensive landscaping so that tree was actually growing over that. We
actually had to duck just to go up that path. Anyway, it’s looking
beautiful now.

Hey, this is Dana with Staged Fine By Design, and she’s our stager for this
wonderful property right here. Dana, why should people stage homes?

Dana: Well, basically you don’t get a second chance to make a first
impression, and so if you don’t have a property well put together and
priced right, you’re going to have a struggle getting it sold in the time
frame that’s desirable.

Anton: Oh, awesome. And then, what would you say the results are for
people that stage homes versus don’t stage homes?

Dana: Well, basically people sit on the market longer. It becomes a
frustrating experience. Typically, when you decide to sell a home, you want
to get rid of it as soon as possible. You don’t want it to linger. And so,
when you’re showing somebody an empty home, they don’t have an opportunity
to really get a feel for how they might live in the space. And so,
furnishings and accessories really help them get a better visual.

Anton: Perfect. And then, with a lot of homes, maybe the home is
dated, or in this case, it’s just huge square footage. What is the staging
doing for either the era or to bring in the size and things like that?

Dana: Well, basically if you’re dealing with a home that tends to be dated,
it camouflages in an appropriate way those things that need cosmetic
upgrades.

Anton: Sure.

Dana: And then, also when you have a large home and you don’t have any
furnishings in it, it has this very cavernous feel. Basically, when you add
furnishings and pay attention to the architectural style, it helps create a
more seamless viewing experience for your prospective buyer.

Anton: Awesome.
