5 Signs Your Listing Needs Home Staging

With more and more people moving to the DFW Area for new jobs or to get a bigger house for a more affordable cost, the Dallas real estate market is on fire. A lot of real estate agents and home sellers believe that they can sell any house, whether completely bare or full of the current owner's furnishings and decor because we're in a seller's market. However, selling doesn't always go to plan. Do you think your home or listing may need home staging? Here are a few clues that you could use the help of home staging in Dallas.

1. The home has been on the market for over a month.

According to MetroTex, the average time a home spends on the market in Dallas is 39 days. After about a month of being listed, it might be time to bring in a home stager. In 2019, homes staged by Staging Dallas spent an average of 12 days on the market.


2. The home is vacant.

In the case of a vacant home, it may be hard for people to envision what the home will look like with furniture, especially online. Furniture will create depth and perspective, making rooms look larger and more defined


3. The home is full of over-personalized details.

In the case of an owner's current furniture (completely untouched), it can be difficult for potential home buyers to visualize what the home would look like with their personal items. Removing all family and personal photos, knick-knacks, and souvenirs will make a world of a difference.


4. The home is outdated.

Home staging is a more cost-effective alternative to expensive home updates and upgrades. By bringing in more modern or up-to-date furnishings and decor, we can show that the home's bones may be a bit behind on the times but can easily be brought up to speed with a little help.

5. The furniture isn't doing the space any favors.

Everyone has their own personal preferences and tastes, and that's completely fine when you're not selling your home. In certain cases, existing pieces aren't doing the space any justice, like crowding large furniture in a small room or placing a too-small rug in a large room. Leave furniture arrangement, size, and placement to the professionals and find out how fast the home sells.
