Prospective buyers who come to see your home want to see its potential – and it’s your job to help them do that through staging.
And you can’t stage an empty room.
Why You Should Never Leave a Room Empty When Your Home’s For Sale
You already know the house has to be spotless when buyers come over – it needs to look like it’s incredibly easy to maintain. But what about the “stuff” that’s in it? Your real estate agent can give you staging tips, and you can hire a professional home stager – but there are things you can do yourself to make sure you’re not scaring away buyers, too.
And that means tackling the empty room.
An empty room can really kill the chances you had at getting an offer from prospective buyers. They’ll take a look at it and wonder what they can use it for – and they’ll feel like if you can’t use it, even though you’ve lived in the home for however long, they probably won’t be able to, either. This all happens subconsciously, too. Think of it this way: All your other rooms are furnished and in use, but this lone room is empty – you don’t even have an old exercise bike in there or clothes in the closet.
If you have an empty room, stage it as a guest bedroom, a library, a playroom or an office – just about anything will do, as long as it gives buyers a visual on how they can use every square inch of the home.
