The benefits of staging your home

The spring real estate market is here and real estate agents are on the move!
The spring market is also very competitive, so how can you set your home apart from others?
By staging it. Staging is a process that includes cleaning, eliminate clutter, removing, re-purposing and presenting.

A professional stager will see your home the way a buyer would want to. When you stage you should be featuring the selling points of your home such as high ceilings, large living space, beautiful neighbourhood, natural light etc... Stagers will simplify or streamline the furniture in a room for better traffic flow and to enhance its spaciousness. They may neutralize a too-personal color scheme or add touches of color or accessories where needed. Staging helps exhausted buyers "mentally move in" and feel that when they move in for real, they'll be able to kick back for awhile and relax.

Staging helps your buyer fall in love with your home. Certain personal objects, pictures,and furnishing layouts can confuse and deter buyers; having a stager will help avoid common pitfalls sellers make. Selling at the best price involves more than hiring an agent and placing a sign on the lawn. Statistics are showing that staged homes can sell up to 50% faster and for an average price increase of 7%. Staging your home prior to listing is the best way to ensure the highest return on your valuable investment.

When a potential home buyer enters your home you really only get one chance to make that all-important first impression; many buyers actually make up their minds about whether or not they like a house within the first 10 seconds. Home staging is a simple and cost effective way to “present” your home for the buying audience so you create a great first impression, stand out from other listings, and linger in the mind of the buyer. Real Estate Agents will make some suggestions on how to present your home but a real estate team such as The Bennett Real Estate Pros ( work exclusively with a staging company to help their clients present their home in the best possible light and maximize on their most important asset. Set yourself apart from the competition and get ready to sell!
