5 Reasons It’s a Bad Idea to Leave Rooms Empty

  1. People don’t buy houses, they buy homes!
  2. It’s hard to understand how large a room is when there’s nothing in it as a reference point.
  3. People can’t visualize how furniture will fit in an empty space and if they’re unsure – they don’t buy.
  4. When a room is empty prospective buyers focus on the negative details instead of falling in love with the overall space. Instead of looking at the flow of one room to another. Home staging is simply “detailing” your home to sell it, in order to ensure it will appeal to the maximum number of potential buyers. Buyers need to image themselves living in your home. Staging lets them.
  5. Your home is your biggest investment. If you want to get top dollar in today’s market, you need it professional staged. The ideal time to stage it before the listing goes up or the sign goes out. You only get one chance to make a first impression.

Before potential clients and other realtors come through, you want your home to show to its best advantage.
