When you’re hosting your Open House, you want your house to look its best. You want it to be clean, inviting and depersonalized so the potential buyers can picture themselves there. It can be hard to figure out how to get all of those elements into your home. That’s where a professional home stager comes in. Here are the reasons why your Burnaby real estate’s Open House will benefit from being staged by a professional.
They can Strike a Balance Between Depersonalized and Cold
When you’re depersonalizing your house, there’s a danger that you’ll go too far and you’ll accidentally make your home seem cold. You want your house to feel like it’s been lived in, but you also don’t want it to have so many of your own personal touches that your potential buyers can’t picture themselves there. This is a hard balance to reach if you’re trying to stage your home yourself. A professional home stager will know how to make your home feel warm and inviting in a way that will appeal to all of your potential buyers.
They know how to Downplay your Home’s Weaknesses
You probably realize where your home’s weaknesses are. Maybe your living room is small, or your master bedroom tends to be dim. A professional home stager will find ways to hide those weaknesses. They’ll be able to figure out how to give your living room the illusion of being larger, and they’ll be able to find ways to make the master bedroom seem lighter than it really is. When a professional home stager is done with your house, you’ll forget that the weaknesses even existed.
They Can Highlight your Home’s Strengths
Once your home’s weaknesses are hidden, the home stager will be able to play up its strengths. They’ll move your furniture into formations that make your rooms seem spacious. They can also help you decide on decorations, and they’ll add some of their own finishing touches to complete the staging. A professional home stager knows what the buyer wants to see, and they’re able to transform your house into something that will intrigue and excite them.
Staging your home is a very important part of getting ready for an Open House, and just getting rid of clutter and depersonalizing isn’t enough to intrigue buyers. A professional home stager will be able to use their skills and knowledge to transform your house into something that will get buyers interested. After the stager is done with your house, your buyers will be ready to start bidding immediately.
