Furniture in most homes is arranged in a comfortable way. A way that feels like someone lives in the house and is relaxed and content there. Unfortunately while furniture and decor placed in this way can make guests to your home feel welcome, that feeling may actually hinder you if you are trying to sell a home. If a home is on the market, the home needs to show potential buyers that they can turn that house into whatever they want. It needs to show them that there is enough space in the home for their family.
Sometimes a comfortable “lived in” house can have the opposite effect and may impede the sale of a home. There is no need to worry because there is a solution. Professional home staging consultants can come into a house and arrange furniture and decor in a way that will be enticing to potential home buyers.
For example, if there is formal living room with a sectional sofa, they may move the sofa into another room and put more elegant looking furniture in the living room. This accents the main focal point of the room which is the fire place. Another trick is if there is a large kitchen that has enough space for a table but also has an eat This is a neat trick because a kitchen is a usually the most visited room in a house.
Moving furniture isn’t all that home staging consultants do. They have a few ways to make a house feel more than it really is. There are times when the person’s furniture isn’t enough so they bring their own. They have used their own furniture for these houses.
They may say something is too big and use a smaller piece. They do this to make the room look bigger. They have actually painted walls before showing. There are times they trade a dark looking room for a lighter color.
Having a set of fresh eyes look at your house can be beneficial because it gives you a perspective you would not have otherwise had. Even if you wanted to try to stage a home yourself, fresh eyes can always show you an alternate view and pick out things you may have missed. Hiring a professional home staging consultant is a win win situation. Not only is your home more likely to sell, the chances of it being sold quickly are much greater. If you are looking to sell a house or have a house that has been on the market for a while, hire a professional stager. Doing so can only be beneficial to you.
