When it comes to putting your home on the market, you might be wondering whether it is necessary or worth it to stage your home. Staging a home is the process where you clean, remove clutter, and make minor repairs on both the exterior and interior of your home. This might involve adding a fresh coat of paint to certain walls, mowing the lawn, washing windows, and putting excess furniture and clutter away.
If the home is staged properly before it hits the market, it can have great benefits on the sale of the home. According to the National Association of REALTORS, nearly half of sellers’ agents reported that staging the home decreased its time on the market. Plus, for both sellers’ and buyers’ agents, 20% reported an increase in offer price by between 1 and 5% compared to similar homes which weren’t staged.
When a potential buyer enters the home, it’s important that they can envision themselves living there. Staging a home makes it easier for buyers to visualize this. According to the same report by NAR, the living room is the most important room to stage, followed by the primary bedroom, and then the kitchen.
