Any real estate or home staging professional knows that in today's competitive markets, every edge you can get over the competition matters. When a prospective buyer walks into any home, they want to feel and visualize what it would be like to live in that space. An empty house with blank walls is simply too difficult for many people to visualize themselves living in, which is why smart sellers increasingly using home staging as a way to increase perceived value and receive top dollar when selling their homes.
A report released in 2019 by the National Association of REALTORS® Research Group indicate some interesting statistics. They include:
-"40% of buyers’ agents cited that home staging had an effect on most buyers’ view of the home."
-"83% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home."
-"When staging a home, 22% of sellers’ agents reported an increase of one percent to five percent of the dollar value offered by buyers, in comparison to similar homes."
-"17% of respondents stated that staging a home increased the dollar value of the home between six and 10 percent."
There is no mistaking the real value of staging a home before it is sold in order to maximize it's attractiveness and dollar value to the largest number of buyers possible. And in addition to the furniture and accessories, one of the most important components of a well staged property is the placement of beautiful and inspiring artwork, tying each room together with complimentary colors to give the spaces a focal point and inviting feeling.
Why Your Choices Matter
It is worth pointing out that art is a matter of taste and the importance of utilizing neutrally themed wall art cannot be overstated. There is nothing worse than to risk offending potential buyers of a home because of poor choices in artwork. For example, family photographs have deep meaning to us as individuals but are completely lost on a home buyer who is trying to envision themselves living in the same space. When hanging art to stage a home, some things to AVOID include:
- photographs or paintings of people
- anything political
- religious scenes, depictions or symbols
- nudity or risqué scenes or photography
The Beauty of Landscape and Nature Photography
A growing body of research shows that exposure to nature or even viewing a photograph of a beautiful landscape scene has a natural calming effect on the brain, reducing stress and increasing positivity. With the ability to place landscape and nature prints in virtually any room of a home, they are an integral and natural choice for staging professionals to include on any project, making the property as inviting as possible to the largest number of people.
Remember that no matter our age or cultural background, people love nature and it's positive effects on our lives. The truth is that the inclusion of landscape, abstract and nature prints in your inventory of wall art is a proven way to make a home more appealing, warm and engaging to prospective buyers.
