Staging can help you sell your Vancouver Home FasterWhy Staging?

By now most people know what home staging is – preparing your property for sale using updated furniture and decorations to increase the appeal to a larger variety of home

buyers. Some markets use this real estate technique more than others and we can

definitely say Vancouver is the place for that! But the market is hot you say? So why

stage?

There are few different areas of staging- vacant and occupied homes. Let’s just

concentrate on vacant for a moment. Although a paradox - empty spaces often look

smaller, and also are very uninviting. So imagine you walk in inside a vacant home and all

you see is blank walls and spaces, and you start wondering what’s the purpose of this

room, would my dining table fit here, is this a Queen or King bedroom, and more and

more questions and you feel confused and frustrated so you just browse for a minute and

leave. Or as most of us do now, you shop online for homes, browse hundreds of listings,

and you see a listing with just empty rooms. Would you spend more time on this one, or

another listing, which has photographs of nicely furnished rooms? I’m sure it’s the latter.

It’s just human nature. Potential home buyers usually make their decision about whether

or not they like the home they are viewing within the first 30 seconds of walking inside, or

the first few pictures they see online. So let’s catch those first impressions with attractive

and impactful staging and decorating, raise the bar from the competition and get more

and higher offers in this hot market!

I know first question always is - how much would that cost me? Preparing a home for

sale will accumulate some costs for painting, storage, gardening, then moving which you

have to put upfront. Staging also comes at a cost, but I’d like to think of it as an

investment instead – statistics show that staged home gets up to 20% higher offer than a

vacant one, or occupied home that hasn’t been decluttered or decorated. Or, if you’d like

a different visual – staging cost is many times less expensive than your first price

reduction, if you don’t sell right away!
