Is Your Vacant Home Languishing On The Market Why Staging Might Spark A Sale

Is Your Vacant Home Languishing On The Market Why Staging Might Spark A Sale

Is it better to put a home up for sale when it is vacant or to leave the furniture in the home? I may need to move to a different location for my job and am wondering how to approach this. Your help is highly appreciated. Thank you.

Most real estate agents will tell you it’s harder to sell a vacant home than one that’s furnished, even if the furnishings are a bit dated. There are several reasons for this.

First, it’s hard for buyers to visualize empty space. When you have a couch, two chairs, a table and several houseplants in a living room, for example, buyers can mentally swap out their own furniture for yours and have a sense of size, space and what the room will comfortably hold. They can sit down on your coach and envision themselves sitting on their own couch, enjoying a calm Sunday morning.

But in an empty house, buyers wander around trying to assess just how big the space is. Even if you give buyers an architectural plan or floor plan, it’s still hard for them to visualize just how much of their possessions will fit.
