Homestaging or how to sell your house inspiring love❤
We can describe it as a set of techniques which give a more attractive aspect to a property. We look to de-clutter, organize and harmonize the space to highlight its strong points and fix or minimize its defects.
We mustn’t confuse Home Staging with decorating. We look to convert the home into an inviting, neutral and impersonalised space, so that the largest number of possible buyers may like it.
What benefits does it have?
By impersonalising the house we can achieve possible buyers to imagine themselves living in the house from the moment they walk in, on the other hand if we have a property with a very strong decoration and atmosphere and such doesn’t coincide with the taste of the visitors then the possible buyerswon’t make us an offer.
The ultimate goal of these techniques is twofold:
✔ The buyer has a better view and concept of which possibilities the property offers and therefore is more prone to wanting to buy the property.
✔ The seller enhances all of their properties possibilities and therefore has a higher chance of selling their property quickly and for the best price.
A home stager is a person who makes sure that your property sells as quickly as possible. Versed in both interior decoration and marketing, a home stager can connect with the emotions of the consumer and make a house or an apartment look much more like a home.
Although a home stager works with all types of properties, normally the smaller ones or the top quality ones are those that sell quicker. We have to take into consideration the current circumstances, especially in Spain: the recent economic crisis has left people with less money so they are looking for small, but comfortable houses to live in on a daily basis. Spaciousness, order and cleanliness are what we want around us where we live…..The Home Staging professionals help us to achieve this effect so that buyers feel that they are getting much more than they are actually paying for.
Statistics prove us right
According to Home Staging AVEO network of agencies in a study carried out in 2011, if we used this particular strategy, our property would sell up to four times quicker. This means that if a conventional property takes 130 days to sell, one linked to Home Staging would take 35. Furthermore, the negotiation fee on the selling price is 8.7% without and 3.16% with Home Staging. Because the property sells in less time, there is less leeway on the price negotiation.
Some advice on making improvements to your property
1. White or off white walls make the rooms look lighter and brighter
2. Just a little furniture in light tones gives a feeling of space. Just compare houses from yesteryear to those we see today. The difference is considerable, isn’t it?
3. If you create a contrast between the interior décor and the base colour of the room, you will achieve an optical illusion which makes it look attractive with a touch of quality.
An owner isn’t usually very objective when it comes to their property, so having and external professional view can help to revalue the property.
On the other hand, home staging can be a very long and complicated process. Contracting a professional home stager with great experience can help find possibilities for your property which maybe hadn’t been contemplated previously.
