Ulster County Real Estate: Home Staging TipsGive Those Rooms Definition
A mistake so often made by sellers is to move out and leave their former home vacant. The homeowner thinks by doing this a buyer will be able to get a better feel for the space. In some cases, a buyer does have good spatial abilities and can visualize whether their five piece sectional, two armchairs and large, oak coffee table will truly fit in the vacant living room space.
From experience, I can tell you this is more often not the case. Many buyers will eliminate a property that they feel is too small even if the square footage says otherwise. Without the requisite furniture pieces, the room’s layout isn’t apparent.
This happened in a particular home I staged several years ago. The home was a new construction. It had three bedrooms located on the second floor. Now I wouldn’t believe a newly built home would have three rooms on the second floor designed to be bedrooms yet not allow the space for today’s standard of at least a queen size bed. Well, guess what? Potential home shoppers questioned their being able to fit their bedroom furniture in the rooms. By staging the space and showing the rooms with queen sized beds the home sold at the first open house. Staging solved the problem.
Gone are the days of going to a realtor’s office and being handed an oversized, cumbersome book that took forever to look through. Anyone who has bought a home in the not so distant past will remember those MLS books with one or maybe two very fuzzy, black and white photos of the property for sale.
