How Home Staging Can Help You Sell Faster

You want to sell you home, and you'd like to do it quickly—and for the best possible price. You're thinking about paying for home staging, but you just aren't sure if it's worth the cost. After all, you've already put thousands of dollars into home maintenance, not to start on how much you paid for the house in the first place. Should you really spend more money on it?

If you want to sell your home quickly and for the best price, home staging is one of the best investments you can make.

Here are a few reasons why you should hire Shop a Property to help stage your home:

Emotions Influence Purchasing Decisions

People may start out with a list of criteria based on what they logically need, but in the end emotions are the deciding factor in most home purchasing decisions. To get the best offer you need someone to fall in love with your house—which means it needs to feel like a home. Your home might not sell at all if it's not properly set up.

When Shop a Property sets up your home staging, we focus on making your home feel peaceful and welcoming to potential buyers. We'll pay attention to all the details—after all, one small thing could make the difference between a buyer who's in love with your home and one who completely loses interest.

The Importance of First Impressions

If your home doesn't make a good first impression, you won't have many interested buyers. Your average buyer makes a decision about the house in about six minutes, so you want them to decide each room is perfect with only a glance.

This is even more important in the internet age. Many people won't get past looking at the photos you've posted online. Home staging helps you make those photos eye catching so you'll get more interested buyers and be able to choose the best offer.

Raise Your Price

Your house might be beautiful enough to sell on its own, but home staging can increase your asking price significantly. People are willing to pay quite a bit more for a home they've fallen in love with than a home they simply think is suitable. The National Association of Realtors estimates that home staging, which usually costs about 1% of the price a home is sold for, can increase the sale price by 8-10%. Sounds like a pretty good investment, right?

Don't forget that choosing the right company to do your home staging is incredibly important. You want an experienced professional who knows exactly what makes a house in Toronto sell for the highest price.

At Shop a Property, we know exactly how to make buyers fall in love with your home. With over eight years of experience selling property in Toronto, we can stage your home so you can make the most money possible.
