What does love have to do with home buying?  You may think not much, but bear with me — after all it’s almost Valentine’s Day!

We were hired by investors to stage a beautiful vacant home.  This home features  new construction with great colors and finishes and the master bedroom was spacious.   The house looked wonderful, but wasn’t much different than the dozen other homes that are for sale in this neighborhood.

Until the staging was complete that is.  Wow . . .  now I love this room! (There is a darling seating area on the other side of the room that I couldn’t capture in this photo.)

I’m not the only one. I was in another room as agents saw the bedroom for the first time.  They said “Oh wow look at this bedroom!  I LOVE it!”

Consider this:  The average home buyer tours at least 10 homes before making an offer.

  • Some homes will be remembered because they were too cluttered or dirty.
  • Some will be remembered for their pet smells.
  • Some will be remembered for their decor that was so different than what “felt homey” to the potential buyers
  • and many will be forgotten – especially if vacant — because empty rooms are hard to visualize with furniture and all start to look the same.

In this real estate market, we know falling in love with a home leads to offers!  Make sure your home is lovable — not just to your family but to potential buyers too!

Happy Valentines Day!
