Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
One of the biggest trends in real estate over the past few years has been Home Staging or Real Estate Staging, according to Bethany Poole, one of RANLife Real Estate’s expert home stagers.
Bethany began in Real Estate in 2005 and immediately saw the need for home staging. After over nine years now in the Real Estate industry, Bethany stages homes for her own listings as well as for other realtor’s listings.
“Your home is going to sell quicker and for more money when you stage it,” according to Bethany. Some homes require more or less amounts of work than others but this is also why she recommends planning an appointment with a Home Stager at least a few weeks ahead of time when beginning the process of selling your home.
Clients can stage their own homes but Bethany recommends hiring a professional. Not only does a professional have industry experience but a third party can provide an objective point of view. “With the help of a home stager I’ve seen clients get full price offers on their homes on the very first day it’s listed,” said Bethany.
The three main steps involved with staging a home are to clear the clutter, de-personalize, and make the home feel livable for someone else. “I encourage my clients to go visit model homes to get an idea of how a home should be presented for sale,” said Bethany.
Not every agent is familiar with home staging so make sure to do research beforehand. Bethany has done two extra certificate programs for home staging and also has a background in interior design to support her background in home staging.
“Home staging is so important because you could be leaving money on the table if you don’t stage your home correctly,” according to Bethany. Without home staging it’s much more difficult for the buyer to envision themselves living in your home, therefore you could be losing not only a potential buyer but potential profit as well.
