Top 3 Myths About 2019 Home Staging-Chicago Real Estate
Making the most money on the sale of a home for 2019 is often the name of the game, and the agents who can do that, and ideally in a short span of time, becomes the Realtor of choice. There’s been a lot of talk about staging a home to sell these days because Chicago sellers are recently seeing a trend of above asking price offers! Staging often plays a role; unfortunately, there are quite a few myths about home staging that need to be outlined…
Myth #1 – Staging is mostly for vacant homes.
FALSE! Staging is more critical in occupied homes because it costs a lot less and has a huge impact.
Myth #2 – Staging is about neutralizing and painting all the walls beige.
FALSE! Staging is about working with what the seller has, so that the more expensive cosmetic changes may not always need to be done.
Myth #3 – Staging is mostly “decluttering.”
FALSE! Staging is about “styling for the photoshoot.”
While removing the extraneous in a home in order to give the buyer a view of the architectural details is a part of staging, completely clearing off the kitchen counters, dining tables, and coffee tables is most definitely NOT what a good home stager recommends.
Listing photos online often show kitchens, for example, with completely cleared countertops and that are overall lifeless.
But an expert home stager works with the home’s integrity to capitalize and merchandise the space into something that will resonate with the buyer from online glance to in-person experience — so they’ll then want to see more of the home and true engagement is achieved.
