6 Reasons Why Furniture Staging Makes Sense

A recent report has shown that furniture staging will help you sell your home 73% faster, on average. This means that as a seller it is well worthwhile making a small investment towards the presentation of the property you are trying to sell because ultimately it will bring in a massive return on that outlay.

We are experts at home styling in Perth and have assisted many satisfied customers. We help make the most of the spaces in the homes for sale to make them more appealing to potential buyers who are viewing the properties. The real estate industry will tell you that they estimate most buyers make their initial decision within 3-6 seconds of viewing the property, therefore first impressions are crucial.

At Furniture Fitouts, we can provide furniture staging to help the sale of your property, and here are our main reasons why it’s important to stage your home when putting it up for sale:

  1. Make More Money

Not only will your home sell quicker as a result of staging, but it is likely that the property will sell for higher, too. It is estimated that around 50% of all staged homes will end up selling at 10% more than surrounding unstaged homes for sale in the area. If you want to sell your property for as close to the asking price as possible, then it makes sense to use a service like ours for home staging in Perth.

  1. See a Big Return

Think about it: if you were to sell your car, would you want it to be inspected without taking it to the car wash first? Or would you invest a tiny amount of time and money to give it a wash and a wax so that your car looks its best to potential buyers? A neat-looking car will appeal more to buyers, so it makes sense to get it looking its best before you present it for sale. The same principle applies to home staging. Just spend a little bit of money, and it will go a long way.

If you spend around 1% of the value of your home, this is likely to bring in a 1000% return on investment. For example, if your home is worth $400,000, then spending $4,000 dollars just to stage it may seem like an inefficient use of money. However, that’s until you consider that you are likely to earn $40,000 extra in the final price of your home as a return on the investment.

  1. Make it Easier and Quicker

Furniture staging will really help potential buyers visualise how they could make use of the spaces around your home. This also includes any outdoor space, which should not be neglected. A vacant home or one that is too cluttered with used furniture will not present itself as easily in the imagination of prospective buyers, so it is really useful to give them a helping hand and use one of our interior design packages for your Perth home sale.

Most buyers will make their decision based on emotion, and seeing how they could fit into living in the property will help them make their decision to buy quicker. As we stated above, this figure is around 73% faster sale rate, on average.

  1. Keep a Better Record

Furniture staging is useful for home viewings, but also for the photos it will help create. Before even coming to your home, most people will look at a selection of photos on offer prior to making the decision whether to visit. So, it makes sense to have your home staging organised before the realtors take photographs of your property.

Having appealing photos may even lure in otherwise uninterested buyers since many people will look through photos of properties on websites before even talking to the real estate agents. If they see a home that appeals to them, then it may prompt them to come around and take a look. Visually appealing photos of a staged home may give your sale the edge.

  1. View Your Home with a Fresh Pair of Eyes

The process of replacing the furniture in your home with something less used and less personalised will help you, as a seller, to see the property more objectively. For this reason, we thoroughly recommend using our expert services for home styling in Perth, because it will make it easier to detach yourself from your home and sell it neutrally.

Once you have brought in professional stagers to fit out your home, you’ll be able to see your property objectively. Now, you’ll see it as newcomers would see it, and then you’ll have a better idea of how to sell it.

  1. Overlook the Glaring Flaws

After living in a property for a while, most homes will gather some defects. Most of these flaws we tend to forget about and learn to accept until someone new comes along and points them out to us. The negative points about your home are likely to be the first things a potential buyer will pick up on. That’s only natural, if a person is looking for value, and considering how they’ll be able to live at the property for a long time.

By using the expert services of our home stylists in Perth, you’ll be able to make the best presentation of your home, meaning that the negative points will get overlooked. If you work with us, we’ll ensure that all the best features of your home are highlighted, whilst some of the negative points are taken out of the spotlight.
