The Amazing Benefits of Staging!

You only get one chance to make a first impression, and in today’s highly competitive Halifax housing market, that impression needs to be perfectly tailored and presented to the likely buyer of your home. Some people confuse staging with decorating, but the two are very different from each other. Your home may be flawlessly decorated by a professional with the highest quality finishings and furnishings to your tastes and preferences, but unless you are one in a million, this does not mean your home is staged well to sell. Staging is showcasing your home and it’s features to the greatest number of likely prospective buyers so they can easily pictures themselves living there and making the most of the lifestyle and function that your home offers.

Relative to the amount of time and money involved, staging is one of the most profitable aspects of home presentation you will undertake. Buyers aren’t just looking for a place to live, they are looking to fulfill dreams and improve their lifestyles. Staging helps them envision those dreams, creating a strong emotional attachment, which equates to a quicker sale and higher sale price for the seller.

The Falkwin Group believes home staging is really no longer optional in the Halifax real estate market, it is essential. Our stats in the number of homes we sell, how long it takes us to do so, and the high price points we obtain for our sellers are a testament to this.
