How Home Staging Helps Condos Fight Competition
Home staging is one of the most effective methods to add perceived value to your property, visually, mentally and emotionally. It can help sell your home or condo faster by making it stand out, especially when there are other similar listings in the market.
Professional home staging costs are easily retrieved back through a higher selling price as opposed to when selling the property without any home staging. Home staging is particularly important in condos, as these properties come in so many configurations: 1 BR condo for sale, 2 BR condo for sale, 3 BR condo for sale, studios, penthouses etc.
With newer built condos, the problem often is smaller living area sizes. With older Mississauga condos, the problem could be older features & finishes, unless the properties have been updated for sale.
Provide Prospective Buyers with a Vision
If you are selling a condo with a smaller square footage, perhaps one of the biggest mistakes you can make is leaving it empty. Contrary to belief, a condo with no furniture can actually feel much smaller than a condo with furniture in it. This is due to lack of reference for the size and scale. Without furniture and interior décor, buyers may have a hard time visualizing how their own items will fit in this space.
Importance of Size Appropriate Furniture
Stagers know exactly what kind of furniture will provide a spacious and open feeling. Bulky recliners and units are a no go. Contemporary and compact pieces such as sofas with lower backs, and glass tables do the trick.
Overfilled shelves, stuffed-up closets, overflowing coffee tables make a space feel cramped. Stagers will advise and assist with removing unnecessary items to maximize every single inch of the condo.
Let there be Light
Stagers may remove heavy curtains or drapery and replace them with sheer panels to let in as much natural light as possible. They may add lamps and mirrors in certain areas to make the space look bigger and brighter.
Keep the Colours Light & Subtle
This is especially true for the bedroom, where people unwind after a long day. Light, airy, fresh linen helps evoke relaxation.
Let there be Free Flow
When buyers walk into a condo, there should be clear pathways to every room. Stagers will ensure every piece of furniture is properly placed so that the layout feels just right.
