Why is it Critical to Stage a Vacant Home?
People Don’t Buy Houses, They Buy Homes
The number one reason a buyer purchases a home is because it “feels like home.” It was warm, inviting and the buyer made an emotional connection with the home. When have you ever heard of an empty room described as warm and inviting? Sterile, cold, and uninviting are the three most popular words to describe an empty room.
Without Furniture, There Is No Frame Of Reference
How big is the room? Without furniture it’s incredibly difficult to tell the scale and size of a room. When the buyer doesn’t have answers to their questions-they walk away.
What is this room for? Many times a buyer can’t even tell if it’s the living room or dining room in an unfurnished home. Don’t keep them guessing, because it only distracts them from considering the home as a purchase.
When A Room Is Kept Empty, Buyers Focus On Negative Details
Can you imagine a brand new Mercedes without a paint job? Do you think people would notice the beautiful car or the missing paint? It’s so much easier to notice that crack in the wall, or the chip in the tile when there is nothing else to look at. Home Staging capitalizes on the positive aspects of a home, while de-emphasizing negative aspects in order to position a home that will make an emotional connection with buyers.
Only 10% of Home Buyers Can Actually Visualize the Potential of Home
Nine out of every ten people walking in your home have no imagination of the wonderful possibilities your home has to offer them. They just can’t picture it. Don’t let a simple thing like no furniture or limited furniture ruin your sale. Don’t accept those odds; they will hurt you significantly!
Vacancy Rate Is at an All-Time High
According to the Census Bureau the vacancy rate of homes is at the highest level they have ever seen since they started tracking it 40 years ago! Your home needs to be differentiated from other vacant homes on the market that will continue to stay there without considerable price decreases.
Vacant property staging can really offer a potential buyer vision. Pearle Staging & Design has that vision and can use it to help you sell your empty space faster and for a higher price. We are based in Atlanta, Georgia and service areas in key markets across the United States. Please call to inquire about the possibility of services in your area.
When someone walks into an empty space, it can be hard to visualize its potential. He or she may wonder, “Do I have enough space for my bedroom set in this room?” or “With the layout of this room, I’m not sure what the best furniture would be.” Sometimes these questions could even be enough to scare someone away from the property. Statistics show that only 10% of homebuyers can visualize the potential of a home, so utilizing the expertise of Pearle Staging & Design for your vacant property is a critical part of the home selling process.
Vacant property staging can have a dramatic impact on maximizing the house’s appeal to homebuyers. We bring in the right furniture and accessories for each room of the property for sale and show how it would look occupied. By seeing furniture in the bedroom, for instance, a homebuyer will be able to visualize themselves and their furnishings in the space. Or by creatively using the space in an oddly shaped room, we can show the potential buyer how they could use the space to make it their own and maximize its potential. Vacant property staging can even offer ideas for a room’s use that a buyer may not have considered, thus making a property even more attractive.
Using vacant property staging can bring an empty shell of a structure to life. When you walk into an empty space, it does not feel like a home; it feels cold and univiting. A homebuyer needs to make an emotional connection to the property before they will consider a purchase and an empty space does not allow them to do so. By adding furniture and decorative touches, which are rented or bought by the property’s owner, it warms a space up and makes someone think this is a place he or she can call home. In a Home Gain Survey it was discovered that sellers had a return on their investment of 343% when their home sold, which clearly evidences the benefit of using a professional home stager.
An upscale home needs upscale adornments, and we have a slew of tools at our disposal for giving these structures life. Vacant property staging can bring in furniture, accessories, paint and a variety of things to make the space look like a home. Our service includes working with furniture partners, making sure the items are delivered and placed properly, putting art and window treatments up – and when the house does sell, taking it all down.
It is hard for a home to feel luxurious without luxurious touches, and even the smallest details can make a difference: plush towels in the bathrooms rather than an empty towel rack; cushy area rugs instead of a bare wooden floor; artwork and accessories on blank walls and empty spaces; dishes and glassware in an empty kitchen.
And although it is true that an empty space will have no clutter or perhaps someone else’s style that a homebuyer may find detracting from the home, it also makes it hard for the potential buyer to feel connected to the property. Vacant property staging can help facilitate that connection, which puts you one step closer to selling your space.
