If you are a realtor, then you pretty well understand that you have your job cut out for you. Whether the real estate market is up or down, real estate transactions aren’t as easy as they may seem. If the market is up, you will have a lot of competition with fellow realtors so as that you can make the best of the market conditions, and if the market is down, you will face a hard time finding suitable buyers and sellers for different properties in the market.
To ease your woes, you can start using real estate staging as a means of making easier and better transactions. If you aren’t quite sure how staging can be of help to you, then read on.
Sell faster – Recent statistics show that homes that are well staged are more easily sold than those that aren’t. Not only that, staged homes have been seen to earn premium sale prices than those that aren’t staged. Obviously, you understand that by staging a home, you not only improve its chances of selling but also increase the price at which it can be sold. A win-win situation for you as well as the seller.
Get an edge – It has been seen that most people start their home shopping online by surfing through pictures of homes posted on a realtor’s website. General images of an occupied home may not be that attractive, but if that home is well staged and a professional photographer is employed for taking the images, the impression that the potential buyers will get would be incredible. Even the commonest of the homes would be the perfect haven where anyone would want to move in.
Good for marketing – What makes real estate staging more important is that it offers realtors with a new marketing tool. Just putting up the features of the house along with some low-quality photographs taken by you isn’t going to be enough anymore. Too many real estate agents are trying to make their mark and if you have to excel, you need professional photographs of staged homes that you can use along with the listings to impress customers. Not only that, you can use these professional photographs to boost your popularity on social media platforms as well as real estate forums and communities.
Create the perfect home – Buying a home is both an investment as well as a matter of emotions. Naturally, buyers are often too choosy about what they want to buy and they may be displeased at the slightest of the things, thus terminating the deal. For example, some people may be totally turned off by extremely bright or bold colors and if the house is too bold to look at, they may put it out of their list even before thinking about its features. With real estate staging, you will be able to eliminate such minor obstacles and ensure that the deal is successful.
More dedicated time – Since real estate staging is done by professionals, you can save a lot of time and effort that would otherwise be spent on organizing the house, arranging for proper photographs, etc. With experts at work, you can now invest more time on marketing and promoting your listings so that you can have a line of buyers ready.
