The Importance of Staging Your Home for Showings

Home staging in Calgary is a marketing strategy that prepares a home for sale by helping buyers envision their life there. This process uses furniture to help create a visual representation of each room. Stagers also work on decluttering and depersonalizing a home, making it more neutral for potential buyers. Home staging motivates a buyer to make a swift offer. Realty Unleashed offers free home staging in Calgary and Edmonton because we believe in the value it provides to our clients. If you’re wondering why staging your home for showings matters, read on!

You help buyers emotionally connect to your home.

Home staging in Calgary aims to showcase a move-in-ready home that creates an emotional connection with buyers. Updating decor with modern and stylish pieces can make a memorable impression! In fact, in 2021, the NAR reported that 81% of buyers’ agents noted that staging helped their clients visualize the property as their future home. Especially when you focus your energy on the living room, primary bedroom, and kitchen, three places people tend to spend the most time. Once engaged with the home, buyers will be more committed to your home, making them eager to put in an offer, and depending on the market, sometimes an offer comes in that is even above the list price, thanks to home staging.

You give buyers an unforgettable first impression.

When a buyer walks up to your front door and into your home, they typically know whether or not they like it within the first 5 seconds; that’s right, 5 seconds, pretty quick, right? Home staging in Calgary provides possible buyers with an unforgettable first impression. Walking into a home that is cleaned, decluttered, depersonalized, and staged properly significantly affects their experience viewing your home. When buyers view other homes afterwards, consciously or subconsciously, they will compare every other home they look at to yours. Home staging makes your home unforgettable and encourages buyers to see the value of your efforts.

You show buyers that what they see online is just as good, if not better, in real life.

The reality is that nowadays, most buyers are starting their real estate search on REALTOR.ca, which means the quality of your online listing directly results in the demand to see your home in real life. Between a well-staged home and good-quality real estate photos, your property should have plenty of traction online. Home staging in Calgary helps your online interest lead to showings, and those showings lead to a profitable sale. When buyers come inside your home for a showing, they want to see exactly what they saw in your listing photos.
