The first thing your real estate agent will tell you when you are selling a home is to properly stage the house. The primary reason for this is because staging has been proven through the years to help easily and quickly sell a house, regardless of its location and age. With proper staging, any house will look appealing and attractive to its target buyers so that it will sell faster and at a higher price.
Unfortunately, many home sellers think twice about staging their homes. Most of them associate staging with spending money on major renovations. In reality, however, staging does not cost a lot. In fact, there are homes that are staged appropriately without requiring a single dime from the seller. Keep in mind that the goal of staging is to showcase its beauty and make it irresistible to home buyers. This can be easily achieved without spending a lot of money.
Below are some staging options that you can consider when selling a home in Myrtle Beach. These do not cost a lot of money. On the other hand, only one will fit your needs and budget.
• Professional consultation – A professional stager knows how to efficiently stage a home so that it will effectively attract its target buyers. At first look, they can tell you what your home needs such as a new paint job, landscaping or organizing of your furniture and other stuff. If you have a professional look around the house, they can also suggest converting a room into an office or guest room depending on your target market.
Remember that the key to successfully staging a home is to keep the needs and wants of your target buyers in mind. You are staging the house for them, to attract them. That is why it is necessary that you focus on their needs. If you are targeting small families, you will have to make the house look child-friendly. There should be enough rooms for all the members of the family.
• Partial staging – This includes a little bit of staging work on the home and is highly recommended for homes that are still in tip top shape. If your house is just a few years old and is relatively new, you do not need a lot to do to be able to make it presentable to home buyers. But because you are targeting specific home buyers, you need to make the house appeal to their needs.
Partial staging basically includes converting one bedroom into a home office if you are targeting young professionals or vice versa if you are targeting small families. It can also include removing or replacing some furniture to make the house more presentable and attractive. Other times, a house only needs thorough cleaning and some organization.
• Full staging – This type of staging is recommended for homes that need some repairs and renovations before being listed on the market. In addition to this, investing in new furniture is also necessary before selling a home. When doing a full staging, on the other hand, many professionals would recommend focusing on the kitchen and bathrooms as these are the rooms that most home buyers will primarily look at. And often times, these rooms are the decision makers for the home buyers. How they see the kitchen and bathroom will make or break their decision to buy the house.
