Ensuring that your home looks clean, tidy and welcoming is a sure-fire way to attract the attention of potential buyers, and staging a home properly has been shown to increase the value of a property by up to 20%. However, property staging is not just a valuable tool for sellers. This process can also be enormously beneficial for landlords who are looking for new tenants and need some help in showing off the value of their properties.

Storage Secrets for Property Investors

Successfully staging a property to secure a sale has never been more important. Potential buyers need to experience an uncluttered space with just the right amount of furniture to inform the function of each room and when it comes to staging, the secret weapon is storage. Professional stagers will often remove over half the contents of a home to make it feel more spacious and inviting, harnessing offsite storage to make this possible. So by using a combination of strategic decluttering and effective storage, any investor can stage a property like the pros:  Ensure the entrance way is open and free of any clutter, but make sure theres a place for coats (or umbrellas) to make it feel inviting.

Home Staging

When it comes to selling a home, a very basic rule needs to be kept in mind. A potential buyer is not interested in "your home" as much as they are interested in how a particular property for sale can become "their home". Through home staging the process of change enables the buyer to envision the property for sale as their own. The home seller, therefore, has to think of their property as the new buyers home and that they are just living in it until it sells. A staged house has to be neutral enough to appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers. This process has been proved to be very effective in successfully selling homes. Remember, its a buyers market – Home Staging provides the competitive edge that will make your property stand out from all the others. Try the 3D effect Detach, De-clutter, Depersonalize.
