Should you stage your home?

Did you know that 83% of real estate agents believe a staged home will sell better than an un-staged or messy home? That means it’s more likely to sell faster (less holding costs to you) and for higher!

Many buyers today expect the homes they’re viewing to not just be clean and in good quality, but they also want them to be staged — this means the furniture and appliances match the home, look brand new, and improve the overall aesthetic of the property.

But for someone who doesn’t have the money to stage their property, that could mean waiting 3 months or more to find a buyer.

Fortunately, we’ve worked with a lot of homeowners in Indiana who are in this position. And here’s what we recommend doing…

Do The Best With What You Have — Your first option (especially if you’re living in the home that you’re trying to sell) is just to do the best with the furniture and appliances that you already have. Hide what you can and make everything else look as tidy and presentable as possible. If you’re feeling determined, grab a few new towels, and a fun new rug to high light your space. Focuses should be on the kitchen, bathroom, living room, and the master bedroom/bathroom.

Clean Out The House Completely — Sometimes, leaving your furniture in the home to try and stage it can actually work against you… primarily when your furniture is in bad shape or doesn’t match the decor of the home. If you’re determined to sell on the MLS, then your next best bet is just to clean out the house completely.

Or Sell Your Home Quickly For Cash — If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of your making your home visually pleasing to picky buyers, then you might consider selling your home for cash to a professional homebuyer.
