WHY DOES HOME STAGING WORK?
Homebuyers shop with logic yet buy on emotion. Most of us have experienced buying a house because it ‘just feels right’ even though it might not meet all of our listed criteria. Home staging aims to create this emotional connection with buyers.
Few prospective homebuyers can visualise a home’s potential unless it’s staring them in the face. They can’t look past disorganised or crowded rooms or visualise what an empty room looks like with furniture. Buyers get distracted with all the little things that need doing or mending.
Buyers are busy people. They want a house that is move in ready. They watch Home TV shows and read the magazines. They are looking for something as close to ideal as possible whatever their budget. Home Staging aims to come as close to the ideal as possible whatever the price point of the house.
