When it’s time to put your home up for sale, it’s important to understand the impact that home staging services can have on the length of time your property stays on the market before selling, as well as the impact such services have on the final sale price. Statistics have shown that homes that are properly staged sell faster, and for more money compared to properties that don’t show well. What sellers should also understand is that there are certain rooms in a home that are considered “key” rooms to buyers. So what are the rooms that absolutely must be focused on when staging your home for sale?
Entrance – Although not necessarily a “room” per se, the entrance sets the stage and overall first impression of a home. Since buyers almost immediately develop an impression on a home upon entering through the front door, it’s crucial that the foyer is presents in the most attractive light in order to keep the buyers interested enough to continue with the viewing of the rest of your home.
Kitchen – The kitchen is probably the most important room in a house to stage properly. Kitchens have increasingly become the mecca of a home, especially when it comes to spending family time together and entertaining guests. With so much time spent in the kitchen, it’s important to get it right when it comes time to sell your home. Even just a few simple upgrades, like refacing the cabinet doors, updating the appliances, and installing a new countertop, can go a long way in setting your home apart from the competition.
Living Room – Buyers need to see themselves living in the home. Much like the kitchen, a great deal of time will be spent in the living room. Thus, this space becomes an essential room to buyers. Freshening up the wall paint, arranging the furniture in an aesthetically pleasing and functional manner, and de-cluttering can make a big impact on the overall look and feel of the living room.
Master Bedroom – Buyers always want to see a master bedroom that is warm and welcoming. A vacant bedroom, or one that is cluttered and filled with outdated furnishings, simply doesn’t have nearly the same amount of positive impact as a master bedroom that is staged professionally.
Master Bathroom – Buyers are impressed by master bathrooms that are clean and spacious. Even if space is tight in your bathroom, there are tactics that can be employed to make the room look larger than it actually is, which is why it’s helpful to get expert home stagers to utilize these tricks to create a clean and spacious bathroom.
