Selling your home today can be challenging. Even as the housing market begins to rebound there are still many houses on the market today and you want to make sure that yours gets the proper attention so you can get the best price possible. You have probably seen on television in one of the many reality shows about how people have professionals and decorators that say they are home stagers come in and help them to re-design the look of their home so it sells faster. While this may look great to you, you may still wonder – what does a home stager do to help you sell your home?
Following a Process
Home Stagers are professionals that can come into your home and assist you in getting your space organized so that you can maximize the potential of your home and have it sell. An experienced professional may not take the approach that you often see on television where the stager tells the homeowner how dreadful everything looks. A true professional not playing for the cameras is going to give you a clear assessment of your home during a consultation and make recommendations to you about things you can change. This very often includes doing things like getting rid of some of the clutter in your home, re-painting walls and rooms, making sure the entire home is properly cleaned and that repairs are performed before a staging and more. All of this is to get your home ready for a staging.
Making the Changes
Once the initial phase of the process is done, the home stager can set about showcasing your home. Very often this can involve the removal of certain pieces of furniture, items hung on the walls and other accessories. The stager may re-organize the room to show a different layout and may even bring in rented pieces of furniture, artwork and accessories to create just the right focus points in each room to make them look their best for a showing or open house.
Getting your home staged can really work to your advantage if you use an experienced professional to do the job. They can create just the right look for your home that will help catch the eyes of potential buyers, making them even more interested in all of the potential that your home has for them so that they want to buy it.
