Going out to house-hunt is an experience that can both be rewarding or frustrating. Admittedly, each individual that views a property has a preference that really dominates the decision making process.
Imagine yourself going in and out of Salt Lake homes and not finding that “spark”… This can force you to think of what a waste the day was for not finding the house you desire for yourself. Day two and three may produce the same results, and all of a sudden, that magic moment is finally there! As comforting as a warm cup of coffee on rainy days, as pleasing as finding a treasure in a vintage shop…
So what’s the secret? Probably you got hit by the home staging bug… in a good way!
This is the experience that the Sold by Design team wants to impart to potential buyers of the homes they are staging for their clients. It works simply because “first impressions are lasting impressions”!
Buyers do want the whole package, and they want to look at a house in a way that people finally feel at ease with the space. Given the various home environments that exist by default, a touch up here and a de-cluttering there could create that whole new experience of belongingness and familiarity.
When setting criteria for purchasing a house, buyers always go for the logical order of things. However, the actual act of deciding after seeing the properties is also an emotionally driven experience. This is proof that visuals can evoke certain feelings that ultimately affect buying behaviors.
“This is home” is a phrase that sellers want buyers to tell themselves even from the moment they enter the new territory. As romantically inclined as it may seem, the buying process does lead you to fall in love with a property – even simply with the way that it is presented for viewing.
The Sold by Design transformation starts with the evaluative process to understand what overhaul a house needs in the context of a higher asking price and increased appeal. With a definite plan forming, the team will get right to the job and the countdown begins.
Where there is chaos, the experts will de-clutter. Where there is bareness to the point of boredom, the experts will find ways to beautify the space. Over-all, the focus is to maintain cleanliness, fix flaws and widen the space so that viewers can move through with ease and focus on the essentials that make the property a livable “home.”
If you are selling your Salt Lake house soon and would like to sell fast for a higher asking price, then you need home staging where it is deemed necessary for that memorable viewing experience.
