Why You Need To Stage Your House in Dallas

Do you know only 10% of people have the ability to visualize an unfurnished home furnished?  According to a report by the National Association of Realtors, 40% of buyers’ agents said a staged property was effective in helping potential buyers envision themselves in the space and sold 1-5% higher than un-staged homes. You have heard it time and time again: you need to stage your home before trying to sell it, and you probably need professional staging. But does it really make that much difference? And at a cost of up to $2,000, is it really worth the price. In a word: Yes. Here are four solid reasons why you need to stage your house in Dallas.

Conveys the Impression of Care and Maintenance

Potential buyers are always impressed with a home that seems to be well maintained, one that appears to have been kept up and cared for. Sure, they’ll probably first look at the soundness of the structure and whether the home meets their needs with respect to features. But you can also bet they’ll be looking for signs that indicate the condition of your home.

Effective staging conveys the impression that your home has been well maintained and is in good condition. (This is assuming you’ve already taken care of the necessary repairs.) Top-notch staging helps make your house look to be in tip-top shape and puts buyers at ease about the condition. And this is a step toward a sale.

Makes Rooms Seem Larger and More Functionable. 

Professional stagers have an eye for design and flow, so one result of their work is making your rooms seem larger and your whole house bigger and roomier. And that’s a great reason why you need to stage your house in Dallas.

Staging is the art of utilizing space to the best advantage, so stagers arrange furniture so as to maximize usable space. And this, in turn, makes rooms seem larger than they actually are, which is appealing to buyers. Another key ingredient in staging is attention to the flow in each room to augment the appearance of more space. For example, when you enter a room you scan it from left to right. Stagers, then, put the largest piece in the far left corner and successively smaller pieces on around the room, thus creating the illusion of a larger room. It can also be the difference of selling a home with a “bonus room” or “dead space”, or selling the same home with  an office, game or play room.

Increases Likelihood of a Sale

One of the main reasons why you need to stage your house in Dallas is that it will increase your chances of a sale – as quickly as possible and at a good price. Staging presents your house in its best light, and this makes buyers more inclined to make an offer. And this is the ultimate goal, isn’t it?

Helps Justify the Asking Price

Besides increasing the likelihood of a sale, if you stage your house, it will help justify the asking price. Buyers today are pretty savvy about house prices and property value. And if you stage your house in Dallas, you’ll be taking a big step toward making it look like it’s worth what you’re asking for it.

Of course, you and your agent still need to determine the fair market value by means of a comp analysis, and then you have to price reasonably. And then after all repairs have been made, staging will not only make your house seem roomier, but it will look move-in ready. It will appear as if everything has been taken care of, and buyers will be able to envision your house as their home. Staging will elicit all the right emotional responses in buyers, and they will be less likely to balk at your price.

VIRTUAL STAGING

If you are still not convinced staging is worth the expense and effort. There is also virtual staging. Your home can be staged virtually with the help of computer technology and will give online buyers a better idea of what he home will look like furnished. This has become very popular during the Pandemic, where more buyers are opting for less in person showings and may only go see homes that they are VERY interested in. There are many real estate photographers that offer this service and many DIY options, if you are inclined.

 

So why do you need to stage your house in Dallas? Because it will convey the impression of a well-maintained home, show the homes functionality, make it seem roomier, increase the likelihood of a sale, and help you justify the asking price.
