Homestaging to increase the value of a property

The main objective when selling your property is usually to make the maximum profit in the shortest possible time.

There are very simple ways to make a property more attractive to buyers and yet we often see advertisements for houses where these optimisation options are not used or are only used insufficiently.

What can you do to increase the achievable price of your property?

Regardless of whether the apartment or house is still furnished or vacant. Small touch-ups, such as filling holes and partial painting, can make a big difference. It is often enough to conceal unsightly areas with decorative objects.

Of course, you should make sure that your property is tidy when visitors view it and that there is no laundry or dirty dishes lying around.

Homestaging refers to the temporary decoration of a property solely for the purpose of selling it. This can significantly increase the sales price. Many people find it difficult to imagine an empty apartment in a furnished state and are therefore reluctant to buy. However, just a few furnishings can help to eliminate this uncertainty for the buyer.

Virtual homestaging has also been established for some time now. Using 3D computer models, you can show the property in its furnished state directly on the internet. These virtual models can even simulate solar radiation through the windows at any time of the year or day.

Homestaging in the USA

Home staging has been common practice in the USA since the 1970s and studies show that a property furnished – even with just a few items – not only fetches a higher price, but also sells more quickly. The percentages in relation to the sales price vary between 3 and 10% in the different studies.

Even if the property is advertised on the internet, where you have to work with ready-made input masks, you can create an appealing exposé that shows the property from its best side and link to it in the advertisement. Of course, this also includes appealing photos that awaken the desire to own this property even before the first viewing appointment.

We have experienced the process of selling and buying ourselves and know what to do and what mistakes to avoid.
