If you’re selling a three or four bedroom house in a family neighborhood, it’s important to show kid’s rooms, even if there are no longer young children living in the house. It doesn’t take much to create the look and it’s an important part in romancing the target market for the home.
Home buyers have less imagination than you might think. That’s why home staging can make such a difference in the selling price of a home and the length of time it takes to sell.
When a couple with a young family walks through a childless home, it’s hard for them to imagine how their own family will live there. Questions come up like:
- Are the bedrooms appropriate for their kids?
- Where will they play?
There were no actual children living in this house which had been purchased to renovate and resell. Family homes sell better when they are shown with rooms for children. Six Elements uses rental furniture and props to create the right ambiance, even when no real children live in the home being sold.
Professional home stagers always keep the target market of a house in mind when staging. This helps paint a picture for the potential buyer by staging the house the way it would be lived in by them. With minimal furnishings and a few props, it’s easy to show a child’s bedroom!
