Once you’ve decided to sell your home, you need to make sure that it looks its best. Nobody wants to buy a home that looks lived in, but rather a home that looks livable for their lifestyle. This is where a home staging company comes in. Given the competitive nature of the San Francisco real estate market, good home staging can give your home an edge and add value.
What is home staging?
After placing your home on the market, it’s exposure will attract buyers. The more attractive your home, the more buyers it will attract. This is where home staging comes into play.
Home staging is the equal of commercial stores that showcase merchandise in such a way that consumers want to buy them.
The more attractive the package, the more it makes you want to buy it, and homes are no different.
Before your home entered on the MLS, your Realtor will likely recommend some changes to make and recommend a local home stager.
These things can be as simple as a fresh coat of paint or more drastic, as completely transforming your home decor.
If you have owned your home for a while, your floral wallpaper may be out of date. And your furniture showing severe signs of wear and tear.
Home staging allows a professional with a great eye for style to come in and transform your home into a marketable entity.
Home staging can take on a lot of forms, from simple furniture rearranging to removing pieces and replacing with new.
Home staging creates a feeling of livability for new buyers. So that they can envision themselves living in their space rather feeling they are living in your space.
What can you expect from home staging?
A good home staging company will come up with completely unique layouts that suit your style of home. Be it modern, contemporary, traditional or an eclectic mix.
When design schemes are not repeated, each home is special rather than feeling like a cookie cutter home.
Depending on your individual needs, a home staging professional may recommend some cosmetic changes. Such as swapping out carpet for bamboo flooring or painting a home in a neutral palette.
Other changes a home stager might recommend:
1. Removing family portraits from the walls.
2. Removing any personal items and placing in storage.
Each home staging is different and may cost as little as $10,000 or as much as $150,000, according to the size and scope of the project.
Home staging professionals come from many different backgrounds. And may have different services that they provide, making it hard to choose the right one.
Your San Francisco realtor can help you find the home stager that will best suit your needs. That will work within your budget to make your home sell fast, whether it’s a modern loft, condo or historic home.
