The majority of today’s home buyers are relying on internet searches and photos to begin their decision-making process. This makes photos of a home’s interior a key factor in the selling process. When prospective buyers see photos of cluttered and crowded rooms, or try to look through photos that are low-quality and at bad angles, they will move away from your listing and on to the next one.
Staging a home to look clean, light, and spacious combined with high-quality photographs translates directly to a listing that gets attention, and ultimately, showings with a purchase offer.
Statistics from the National Association of Realtors’ website (https://www.nar.realtor/infographics/2017-profile-of-home-staging) show that a decluttered, staged home can sell in four weeks or less and at asking price or above. Homes that are not staged stay on the market longer, and often sell at an average of 6.4% under the original asking price.
Showcasing your home in the best light possible, through staging and/or high-quality photos, means money in your pocket and an easier home selling process.
