The Importance of Staging & Quality Photography When Selling Your Home

 

What Is Staging?

Home staging is the act of preparing a home for sale. The goal of staging is to make the home appealing to the highest number of potentialbuyers, thereby selling the property more swiftly and for more money. Staging can involve de-cluttering, cleaning, removing old/worn furnishings and replacing with more attractive furnishings, remodeling, making repairs, and landscaping. There is a wide range of staging options depending on budget and price range.

Reasons for High-Quality Photographs…

• 9 out of 10 prospective buyers search for  properties online and, in most cases, will determine whether or not to look at a property based on the photos they see online.
• Poor quality photos and photos of an“un- staged” home will detract interest in a property and result in a delayed sale for less money.
• Photos sometimes need to be updated if the property has been on the market for a long period of time to help give it a “fresh look”.
• Do not make the mistake of listing your property without properly staging it and having the very best photos.
