The main question is “Is it necessary” and the simple answer to that is “no”, but if we look beyond that and ask what are the benefits, well there’s plenty and getting a higher price for your home is just one, so let’s explore.

Arguably the biggest benefit is the ability to paint a picture for potential buyers. Staging is a great way to allow a buyer to see themselves living in the home.

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.

If you have any questions or would like any more tips on the best ways to get your place ready, please give us a call on 3379 4311, we’re always happy to help.
