Nyc, New York (PressExposure) April 10, 2012 -- Home staging can be utilized by both sellers and buyers and is an inexpensive tool for buyer agents to use to close a sale. Maybe your buyer can't see past melamine oak cabinets, wall-to-wall wood paneling, or a small living room that lacks wall space.
Stylish Stagers, Inc. will help buyers with floor plans to help them visualize where to place their furniture, bringing out positive features in the room while adding flow and continuity. Don't let the current layout confuse buyers into walking away from what could be a diamond in the ruff.
Toth says, "the condition of the home can also deter buyers from putting in an offer. Many times a buyer, especially first-time homebuyers can't look past décor to focus on warning signs that can be potential problems down the road. These newbies usually aren't familiar with housing expenses either so may assume the worst when it can really be an easy fix and vice versa."
With our new homebuyer service, buyer agents and home stagers alike can address these issues to their clients, but many times buyers won't trust their Realtor is looking out for their best interest, so a home stager in that case can be a reinforcement for the buyer. In our industry, when offering advice and estimates about repairs most home stagers follow the Home Gains 2011 Survey for Do-It-Yourselfers that revealed the smallest improvements make the biggest difference.
Most home stagers use their creativity to solve a problem, so while out shopping around with a buyer, a Stylish Stagers, Inc. expert can defuse issues that may jeopardize the sale, like storage, lack of lighting or lingering odors. They can quickly give buyers multiple solutions and cleaning tricks, for instance, using vinegar or baking soda cleaning solutions to remove pet odor in flooring without carpets. Need space? Strategically placing baskets, trunks and using organizational tactics to improve storage.
