What are the benefits of home staging?

Are you looking to sell your property? Have you considered home staging to help with the stressful and time-consuming process of moving and selling? Home staging is essentially the technique of property styling and neatening up your home to make it more enticing for potential buyers. There are many benefits to be had from home staging, including giving you the best potential outcome when putting your property on the market.

Growth in popularity and interest

One of the biggest advantages of styling your property is that it encourages more viewings. When looking at a house online, things that may seem minor like clutter or brightly coloured walls can have a huge impact on deterring a viewer away. Therefore, painting your walls with a neutral palette or tidying up loose cables could be the major deciding factor in whether or not someone will come to view the property in person. In fact, The Home Staging Association UK & Ireland, conducted a survey on home staging, finding that 94% of people said home staging increased the number of viewings at their property, showing that it is definitely worthwhile!

Quicker sale

It may seem obvious to mention but more viewings = a higher likelihood of selling. Clearly, the more people looking at your property enables more opportunities for a sale, so the long-waiting game is no more! Not only this, but home staging creates a competitive atmosphere for potential buyers. This means, they are more likely to make an offer above the asking price, which is a huge win! Consider using our professional home styling services such as jet washing your patio so that viewers are instantly greeted with an attractive exterior, or re-arranging furniture to optimise space.

A blank canvas

Another huge benefit to home staging your property is that it allows viewers to envision the space as their own, rather than simply looking at a lived-in property. Create this blank canvas by fixing holes in the walls which may be left from hanging pictures, or repairing ceiling cracks, so that the space appears brand-new. As previously mentioned, we also recommend our team of London decorators who can paint your walls with a light tone such as cream or white to provide a fresh, clean slate for new homeowners.

So, is it worth it?

We believe it is fair to say that there are significant advantages when using home styling techniques to sell your property. It not only creates a welcoming environment for viewers to explore and envision their daily life in but it also increases the likelihood of selling your property and selling it at a great price too! When comparing the benefits of home staging with properties that didn’t use these presentation methods, 86% of people reported a staged home selling up to 3 times faster than an unstaged one. So, it’s a no-brainer!
