Home staging for residential sales – let your home tell a story
Staging for residential sales is big business in the US, but somewhat overlooked in the UK. With stamp duty suspended until 31 March, the property market is currently booming. If you’re looking to make a quick sale, home staging could make all the difference.
The concept of staging means getting your home ready for a potential buyer. A few simple changes can help speed up the sale of your home and even add value.
Staging is important for both estate agency photography and home showings. Don’t wait for a prospective buyer to step through your door, start staging your home for online photographs. Rightmove and Zoopla are an online platform to showcase your home. In a competitive market, if you provide beautiful alluring imagery, you’ll see an increase in viewings, which could lead to a quicker sale. When a potential buyer arrives to view the home, ensure they see the scene they saw online. Continue to sell them a well-put together home they could imagine living in.
