Home Staging: How to increase the selling value of your property

When you sell your property, you want it to look as attractive as possible to potential buyers coming through your door. Have you thought about Home Staging?

Home Staging is a decoration method that aims to highlight the most impressive elements of your home and help buyers imagine what their life will be like in this home. If you do it right, it is certain that the right buyer will soon be found.

According to a research National Association of Retailors (with US data), 49% brokers believe that Home Staging affects the way a buyer sees the house, with 77% saying it makes it easier for buyers to envision the property as their own. On the part of real estate agents, 21% reports that Home Staging increases the value of a home between 6% and 10%, and 39% notes that it significantly reduces the total length of time a home remains on the market.

If you are preparing to sell your property, take a look at these Home Staging tips we have listed for you and make changes that can help your home sell faster and at a higher value.

Home Staging where needed

Not all rooms are considered equal when it comes to making the necessary improvements. It would be good to focus on the rooms that have the greatest potential to influence buyers' decisions and spend less time on those that will not make much of a difference. Greater importance is usually given to the living room, the master bedroom and the kitchen.

Remove your personal items

One of the primary goals of Home Staging is to help prospective buyers visualize the space as their own. The quickest way to achieve this is to give them as empty a canvas as possible. You want the house to have style and charm, but it should lack personal touches that suggest that this house belongs to the seller and not the buyer.

Get rid of clutter

Clutter takes up space and space is what you sell. Make your home look bigger and more desirable! You do not need to get rid of some things forever, but you should definitely pack them and take them out of the house.


Home Staging is a good opportunity to repair some parts. Scratches, holes, painted walls signal intense neglect to buyers.

Choose neutral colors

This Home Staging tip requires a little more time and cost, but can make a big difference in the sale price. Bright colors on the walls help people express their personality, but can be disorienting to shoppers.

Home Staging does not require you to spend a lot of money - just make smart decisions. Your broker should be able to help you make specific changes that will add value to your home and attract more buyers.
