March and April were cold months, not only the weather but also for the real estate market. Traditionally spring is a great time to buy and sell real estate but this year is a challenge, with Covid causing many people to put off making a transaction.
There are signs that this is changing as ‘phase one’ ending of lockdown takes place, and people who need to move will find a way to work safely with real estate professionals and make it happen.
For anyone looking to sell this spring – it would be much less stressful to sell your house quickly, with minimal viewings and all that it entails. That’s where home staging can help.
Staging is one of the best ways to increase the saleability of your property and allows potential buyers to better imagine furnishings arranged in the rooms. To stage your home effectively, you want to declutter, minimize the amount of furniture in each room, ensure there is good traffic flow and create the illusion of space.
According to Home.com:
“Make sure to remove all personal, seasonal, or otherwise special items out of your home. For example, all family and/or wedding photos, holiday decor, awards or religious items. You want to be sure the potential buyer can envision themselves moving their items into the home. Removing all clutter from the bedrooms of your home can be a good task for prep as well.”
While selling a home gives us an opportunity to re-locate items that we no longer need or use, it’s very difficult to condense all of our belongings enough to effectively stage our homes.
So what do you do? The solution? Rent a portable storage unit!
