It also helps the buyer to feel comfortable as an empty home lacks warmth and an inviting atmosphere.
A staged home will look better in photos when compared it to an empty property and these photos are used on all forms of marketing, from online to press and furniture clearly shows the best use of space throughout.
A home that’s furnished looks bigger. The human eye calculates distance by the space between the piece of furniture and the wall. So when looking at the size of the bedroom, we look at how much space is between the bedside table and the wall. The more space, the bigger the bedroom feels.
More than that, furniture takes the focus away from minor defects like simple wear and tear which stands out in a vacant property.
So what does all this mean? Furniture creates a feeling of warmth, makes the home feel more liveable and whether we like it or not, we buy real estate on emotion. A home that’s furnished beautifully helps build more emotion therefore helping us to sell the home faster and for more.
