Are you looking to sell your home in the coming months?
The UK is currently experiencing a surge in house prices as demand meets a record shortage of homes for sale. Supposedly a frenzy of activity has driven UK property prices to a record high in April 2021, at the exact time that the government has launched a mortgage guarantee scheme to help people with small deposits on to the housing ladder.
Rightmove’s monthly survey of properties has found that the stock available to buy has fallen to the lowest proportion recorded, with buyers snapping up properties quicker than ever before. The average number of days to sell a property has also dropped to its lowest-ever level, at just 45 days, reflecting the scramble to secure a deal.
So why do you need to stage your home in this current market?
Even though there are plenty of potential buyers out there, it is crucial that you appeal to the widest audience – so that you can achieve the best price for your property in the quickest time frame. This is how Home Staging can help you. Home staging is the process of improving the appeal of your home – making it look bigger and brighter and more inviting – in order to increase its sale price; but without a huge financial outlay. It can decrease the time your home remains on the market, while helping you achieve the best price.
When you declutter and stage a property, potential buyers can easily visualise themselves living in the space, with the lifestyle your property offers. Most property searches now start online – and the property will appear more attractive on Rightmove and Zoopla, so get more immediate interest. It makes potential buyers feel more confident in the property, that it is in good condition and move in ready – and shows the full space the property offers.
