Home staging is becoming one of the key ways that a house sells faster and for more money; you are presenting potential buyers with an even better version of a home they want to live in. Staging requires you to set up rooms a certain way, and it also means that you’re going through a de-cluttering and depersonalizing process. Realty Unleashed has the best Home stagers in Edmonton and Calgary. We believe in the value of this service because we have seen it work time and time again. When you list your home with us, we will stage it, clean it, take care of your yard, and eliminate any junk you might have, all for free. Keep reading if you’re wondering why home staging works and why we believe in it!
Give your home a move-in-ready feeling.
Most of the time, buyers are hoping to find a home that is move-in ready. When people visit REALTOR.ca to begin their search, a home that looks clean and minimal will commonly get the most traction. Moving is a busy time, often paired with stress, so it is a serious benefit when a buyer finds a home that appears to be ready for them to move into. When you have your home staged professionally, each room will serve a purpose to buyers. A bedroom will look like a bedroom, a nursery will look like a nursery, and an office will look like an office. Very few things are necessary to give a room purpose. For example, a bedroom needs a bed, a nightstand, and a lamp. For those of us living in our home when it’s listed, there tends to be more clutter, which is only normal because, well, you’re living there!
Staging makes your personal space neutral.
Home stagers in Edmonton will have a large inventory of decor and furniture. Most of the time, stagers will come into your home and do a consultation to get a feel of your space. Once they do the consult and get an idea of your space, home stagers will then go through their inventory and decide what will look best. Part of this process includes swapping out personal decor for neutral decor. Family photos will come off the wall and be replaced with black-and-white canvas paintings of a beach, for example. Professional home stagers will work to neutralize your home and make it as impersonal yet welcoming to buyers as possible.
Staging helps your house stand out amongst other listings.
There are many listings that yours will be up against, which is why your home must stand out. When buyers visit REALTOR.ca, the first thing they will see are the photos of a home. When your home is adequately staged by home stagers in Edmonton, your home is bound to stand out amongst all the others. Your listing will show a clean, tidy, move-in-ready, intentionally staged house, which will be incredibly appealing to buyers ready to purchase their new home.
Staging works, and it is proven in the research.
The National Association of REALTORS® reported that only 4% of buyers said staging did not affect their viewing experience, and 47% of real estate professionals cited that their clients received staged homes positively. The same survey found that home staging can sell a home 6-10% faster, and most sellers are looking for a quick and equitable sale. Data collected in 2020 from the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) noted that 85% of staged homes received offers between 5-23% over the list price. The same data revealed that 75% of sellers saw a return between 5 and 15%. If you stage your Edmonton or Calgary home, you set up your listing to be a powerful opponent against the other listings in your market.
