We all know someone who is trying to sell or let a home. Nowadays, households have increased their budget to improve their home before putting it on the property market by 5%, according to data published by the National Association of Ceramics and Construction Materials Distributors (ANDIMAC).

 

How can you make the most from the sale of your property?

 

Today we have the answer: home staging. Home staging is a property marketing technique imported from the United States, which arrived in our country just as the financial crisis happened. It consists of making the most from a property for sale or let through a process of improvement or refinement. When there is so much competition, it is essential to present your home in the most attractive way possible. That is the only way potential buyers will fall in love with it at first sight since, according to estate agents, people make the decision during the first minute of their visit.

Experts speak of depersonalising the home: photos of relatives or friends should be removed, as well as other items that may prevent them from imagining their life there.

In addition, unlike what one might think, home staging does not require complex renovation or large investments of capital. In fact, in many cases, the investment may be less than the discount offered on a property that is not selling.
