1. Gives a More Welcoming FeelBuyers are looking for a place to call home, and empty houses can seem cold and uninviting. Buying a house is as emotional as it is logical - it's important that you appeal to your buyers on a subconscious level by making the house seem warm and welcoming.
2. Creates Ideas for Use of SpaceHave you noticed how today's homes seem to have increasingly creative layouts? This is especially true at the Lake. When the home is empty, buyers may have difficulty visualizing the rooms as they could be used. Staging homes as bedrooms, offices, workout rooms, or even cozy reading nooks can get your buyers' imaginations flowing.
3. Helps Buyers Gauge Room SizesYour number one goal when selling a Lake of the Ozarks home should be to help your buyers envision the space as their own. Without any furniture in it, it may be hard to buyers to judge how large the rooms are. This uncertainty may deter potential buyers who have unusual furniture pieces they plan to bring with them.
4. Can Prevent Lower OffersFinally, having an empty home makes it completely obvious that you no longer live there. While this does not have to be a secret, revealing that the home is vacant may be a disadvantage. Buyers may assume that because you have already moved out, you are more desperate to sell and, consequently, more willing to accept a lower offer. Buyers may offer better prices if they think you have time to be choosy.
