Proof That Staging a Vacant Property Really Works

Imagine opening the door to your new home to find nothing except blank, bland walls starring back at you. While previewing the property the imperfections begin to stick out – a gouge in the hardwood floors, holes in the wall, not to mention a leaky window. Then while in this large open space you ask:

Am I standing where the couch should go? Or maybe the dining table?

Touring a vacant property can be exhausting for a buyer who lacks imagination. A vacant home not only looks smaller, but as little as, 10% of home buyers can visualize the potential of a vacant space, which can make this a hard sell for any Realtor.

Here at Chicagoland Home Staging, we thrive on bringing your empty rooms to life! Our massive inventory allows us to create a picture-perfect home that prospective buyers will not be able to resist. Whether you have a small condo in the city or luxury estate in the country we have the right style to suit the property’s demographic when staging a vacant property.

Home staging is an invaluable marketing tool that can help a client’s home stand out amongst the competition. Our team knows it’s important to choose furnishings that are not only flattering to the buyer but are authentic to the location and style of the home.

Furnishings Frame a Room

Without furniture, it can be extremely difficult to determine the scale and size of a room.  If a homebuyer lacks answers to important questions like:

How big is this room? Or what is the purpose of this room?

They may be tempted to walk away, verse asks. At Chicagoland Home Staging, we don’t want to keep them guessing, distracting them from making an offer on the home that’s why our team strategically chooses furnishings from our warehouse that will instantly attract a buyer.

Redirect Eye to the Positive

Without furnishings in a room, it’s easier to notice the negative details and features in the space. The crack in the wall or the chip in the tile will stand out in the room because there is nothing else to look at. Chicagoland Home Staging strategically places furnishings in the room to direct the buyer’s eye to the positive features of the home in order to create an emotional connection that creates an offer.

An Emotional Connection

Most buyers purchase first with their emotions and then justify the purchase later with their wallets. Why? Because a home is several things: it’s where you live, it’s where you raise your family, it’s a reflection of who you are, and it’s a status symbol.
