Vacant Staging – The Cure for a Cold, Lonely Home

By on April 10, 2014. Posted in . Tagged as .

A home is not just a dwelling or physical structure.  It is the central hub of a household; a place where families make memories.  As they say, home is where the heart is.

Before buyers make a purchase, they must feel they would enjoy living in the home and that it would support a lifestyle they can aspire to.  If a house is vacant, it may seem like a cold and lonely place to potential buyers.  I have toured many vacant properties where sounds echo through dark, dreary hallways and empty, indifferent rooms.  To some, large vacant houses may even seem scary or haunting.  Not the feeling you want to portray to buyers.

In an empty house, it is often difficult to envision the purpose and layout of a room, and how it would best be furnished.  Typically, vacant houses take much longer to sell and homeowners simply resort to drastic price reductions.  As an alternative, consider home staging as a real estate marketing tool to help sell your home faster and at the highest price possible.  Before reducing the listing price, contact a home stager to inquire about how staging a vacant home can help solve buyer uncertainty.
