I can’t stress enough the importance of staging a vacant home. It makes the house feel more homely and lived in but also gives your buyers a point of reference. Most buyers are time poor nowadays that they don’t have the time or the inclination to work out where they could put furniture in a vacant house – you have to show them! Even if they don’t like your furniture it still gives them a frame to see that furniture is possible in the space. Also make sure you have all your rooms clearly defined when you show potential buyers round, if you don’t know what to do with the space they won’t either.
The home in the photo has been sitting on the market for over a year before they brought us in to stage it, they have had plenty of viewings but no offers and the resounding response to viewings was people couldn’t work out where to position furniture! Lets hope this staging does the trick – we will keep you posted!
