Bend Oregon Real Estate – Don’t Fall For These 5 Home Staging Myths










By Deb Tebbs Group

If you own Bend Oregon Real Estate one of the most important things you can do to sell your home is to stage it to sell, but sadly some homeowners may fall for these common home staging myths and decide to not invest their time and money into staging before listing their home.

Myth #1 – I don’t Need to Stage My Home, It will Sell Easily

Although you might think that you don’t need to stage your home to sell, the reality is that you should stage your home sooner, rather than later.

Staging is important because it will help your home to sell for the most money and enable you to present the best possible representation of your home to a potential buyer.

Myth #2 – Staging Is Just De-Cluttering and Cleaning, it’s Boring….

De-cluttering and cleaning your home are the first things you do BEFORE you stage a home, not after.

When you stage your home you’re presenting your home as a PRODUCT for sale and it’s important to keep that in mind if you want to attract the best buyers who will be interested in paying you the most money for your house.

Myth #3 – Staging a Home Is Super Expensive

Don’t let the potential cost of staging your home keep you from doing it!

You can stage your home for sale using your existing furniture or you can easily rent furniture from a local store once you move out to professionally stage your home.

Myth #4 – Staging a Home Is Just Decorating

No, staging a home isn’t just decorating, it’s a combination of showcasing, preparing and professionally presenting a property for sale.

Home staging is an effective marketing tool that’s worked for years and this Real Estate method will work for you too.

Myth #5 – You Only Stage a Vacant Home

Contrary to public opinion, you don’t just stage vacant homes, you can stage your own home while you are living there.

Again, home staging helps you to present your home as a “product” for sale so that a potential buyer will see the best possible representation of your home when they come to view it.
