Staged Homes Sell Faster And For More Money

According to a recent article in the "Honolulu Star Advertiser", staged homes are selling faster and getting higher prices than non-staged homes. Staged homes add warmth and allow potential buyers to see how the spaces would look once they move in. It's easier and less expensive than you might think to stage a home and your Realtor ® can help.

First impression is critical and many buyers make up their mind within seconds of seeing a property. That impression starts to form even as they pull up to the property so it's also important that the exterior including landscaping, exterior maintenance issues, and driveways are taken care of.

Cleaning is essential. Not everyone can afford to renovate, but keeping areas clean and removing clutter will go a long way to improving the impression of the home. Maintenance issues are also a key area that can signal red flags to a buyer. Many minor issues can be taken care of with paint or quick and simple fixes that go a long way to show the quality of the home.

Staging can also be very simple. Just a few items and some plants can give a warm lived in feel without taking away the spaciousness of a room. Basic accessories like linens and curtains can also help warm a big empty room and enhance a buyer's impression.
