Home staging is when a home stager decorates your house in an effort to make your house appealing to potential home buyers hoping that staging the house will not homeowners submit an reasonable offer on their house. According to the Profile of Home Staging Statistics 2017-National Association of Realtors 49% of buyers’agents cited that homes staging had an effect on most home buyer’s view of the home. Also 74% percent of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.

 

 

Your home speaks to you, but what is it saying to your potential home buyer? Most sellers tend to take the home staging process personally,and this is precisely the point. Homes are very personal to homeowners. Many homeowners have many cherished memories in their house. That alone makes detaching themselves from the sale of their house such an even arduous task.
