Why Staging is Important for Barrie Home Listings


When you first put your home on the market, it’s important to stage it properly so that it will attract buyers. Everyone who is looking for a home wants to see what it would be like with their things in it, and one of the ways to do this is to stage it with neutral pieces that make it easy for prospective buyers to mentally replace their own furniture with. But that doesn’t really get to the root of why staging is so important. Here are four very specific reasons you should have your home staged before you put it on the market.

  1. Barrie homes that are staged do not stay on the market as long as those that are not staged. This is a matter of statistics. When you do a comparison of staged homes versus un-staged homes, you begin to see a clear pattern emerge. Homes that are staged simply sell more quickly than those that are not.
  2. Staged homes just look better. Homes that haven’t been staged don’t look like they are finished. It feels like something is missing, although you might not know what that is. The key to selling your home as quickly as possible is making it as desirable as you can to prospective buyers. That means dotting all your i’s and crossing all your t’s. Staging your home is like the icing on the cake. It makes your home look more appetizing to anyone who might be interested in it.
  3. Homes that have been staged draw in more people to view them. The reason for this is because staged homes actually photograph better. It’s much easier to take a photo of a room that has a nice layout rather than one that’s just empty. Instead of looking at blank carpet and walls, you see something much more interesting—a house that could become a home. The better a home looks in its listing, the more people who will want to come and see it. The more people who view your home in person, the more quickly it will move off the market.
  4. A staged home looks like it has been well-maintained. When buyers feel like something is missing (even if they can’t put their finger on exactly what), they are less likely to make an offer on a home. However, sometimes all that’s missing is some furniture and a layout that can make a house feel like a home. A home that is staged properly doesn’t leave any questions in the buyer’s mind. They feel like the house has been well-maintained, so they aren’t afraid to put an offer down on it because it feels like all the pieces are in place.
