Staging is about Creating Great First Impressions!

Creating interest for today's buyer is crucial to getting your property sold!

Today's buyer is internet savvy!  ***84% of buyers used the internet to search for homes.

*NAR buyers's profile

It takes just a quick glance, less than thirty seconds, for someone to evaluate a listing. In this short time, the buyer forms an opinion based on the appearance of the property.

It's important to know how to create a good first impression. This article provides some useful tips to help you do this.

Be on Time / Present The Property Appropriately

Ideally, home staging should be performed BEFORE placing the listing on the market. 

Although, the home staging can be completed after the house is on the market, buyers would have already formed an opinion of the property.  First Impressions are hard to loose, once they have been formed.

Don't rush to have your home listed in the MLS, without the proper photos being taken. Lack of photographs gives the impression the property has some type of flaw.

Oftentimes, a buyer may be new to your neighborhood and or the country.   The photograph is usually the first clue that a buyer has of the property.  Home Staging helps to create a great first impression and also helps the property feel "the part", by creating a feeling of warm and inviting calmness.

 

 Individuality

Yes, to make a great first impression your property/listing does need to "fit in" to some degree. But it all goes back to being appropriate for the situation.  The house also needs to stand out in a good way, this can be accomplished by calling in a home stager. 

If the property is a log cabin, bungalow, or downtown condo, a great stager will know how to address every style of property, so that the property is transformed to fit the style of the buyer.  As a stager, we set the atmosphere that entices buyers to make an offer.  As, Maureen Henry of Rockland County Staging would say, 'We turn Browsers into Buyers!'

A Winning Smile!

Staging evokes smiles on the faces of buyers.  Seeing a reading chair in the guest room, the buyer is able to envision, reading a bedtime story to the children.  Spices on the counter, means lots of family conversations can be made over dinner.  In the master suite, plush bedding and towels neatly folded gives the feeling of a retreat.  Today's buyer can now imagine, relaxing in their new home.  

"Smile and the world smiles too."* There's nothing like staging to create a great first impression.

Add all of these things up and your property/listing is well on its ways to creating a Great First Impression.

 

Remember, the next listing is just a click away!  When trying to sell your property/listing, call a stager today to create a great first impression!
