Home Staging Helps Buyers See Their Dream Life Before them

Home staging helps buyers see their dream life before them.

Helping buyers see is the key.

You may have heard that when people buy homes, they buy on emotion rather than logic. In the past I wrote about how Selling Your Home is Not About Selling Your Home, it is about selling a dream.

You can’t sell a dream if the buyer can’t see it. That is why vacant houses are hard to sell. Very few can “see the dream” in an empty house. They just look cold and uninviting.

Being able to see is just important in an occupied home.

Most people can’t visualize very well. They can’t picture that purple room of yours with white walls. They can’t picture that bedroom you converted to a playroom as a bedroom. They can’t visualize that home gym you created as a child’s room. And, they can’t really visualize how much space the room really has when you have so much stuff in it. Or, if it is totally empty.

 If they can’t see it, in their mind’s eye or with their real eyes, they probably won’t buy it.

How can home staging help buyers see so you can sell your house fast and for the most possible?

Show Me the Money

Home staging helps buyers see the value of what you are offering.

Value partially comes in the number of bedrooms and whether a property can be income producing for example.

If you have converted a bedroom to another function such as an office or gym,  it is important to stage it as a bedroom. The price of your home is partially based on number of bedrooms. If it does not look like a bedroom, buyers won’t see it as a bedroom.

Home Staging Helps Buyers See Their Dream Life Before them

Buyers are often looking for a home that has income producing potential, such as a rental unit with a separate entrance. If you have a space that could be income producing, stage it that way to show the possibility.

Selling a dream might be a different lifestyle. Home Staging by Northern Lights Home Staging and Design.

  1. This is so true – most buyers need help to see their dream life. Great post with wonderful photos and ideas to illustrate your ideas and the value you bring to the table!

  2. Staging makes ALL the difference! I remember being a house hunter and feeling overwhelmed. The house that shows me how it can work for my family puts itself ahead of the others.

    1. Thank you! I think when people buy most things, it is about some type of dream. Well, maybe not dishwashing soap. Haha!

  3. You make great points about how to help people visualize living in a home and the benefits of doing so.

  4. As always, great tips! I especially love the tips about a bedroom. If the homeowner is currently not using it as a bedroom, it should be staged as one. GOLDEN!
