The Importance of Staging


Offering the best in client care and buying and selling resources in Roseau and Lake of the Woods counties.


When you are ready to sell your home, you should consider staging it to appeal to potential buyers. If your Realtor encourages you to stage your home, it is not an indication that your home is not already attractive. Rather, you need to consider how to help your home put its best foot forward so that buyers can visualize themselves living in their new home, rather than visiting someone else’s place. Contact Tru North Realty in Rouseau and learn how we can help.


A study found that staging makes a big difference in the ability that people have to visualize themselves living in the home they are currently viewing. In addition to that, the study showed that buyers’ agents believe that staging has a big impact on their clients. A couple of additional aspects of staging that you should take seriously are the fact that it can help to increase your sale price, as well as help your home to sell faster.


Getting rid of clutter might be easier said than done. This is due to the fact that a lot of what others would consider clutter, we consider necessary for everyday living. For instance, visualize your kitchen countertops as they are right now and you will probably be able to list several different appliances, dishes, and other items that currently reside there. A simple question that can help you determine which things should be removed from your counters is this — do you use this item everyday, or just every now and then? If you use it everyday, then let it stay where it is. If something is only used every now and then, however, find a good place to store it while you are trying to sell your home.
