Staging Props: Don’t Sell Your Property Without Them

December 21, 2016 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)
There’s no denying the power of suggestion. It’s a psychological phenomenon that has wide ranging implications. When it comes to selling property, staging props are key tools for suggesting the lifestyle that is possible for buyers. So use them to your advantage!

After: Remind buyers this would be a great home!

Research summarized in a post by the Association for Psychological Science suggests that, “Once we anticipate a specific outcome will occur, our subsequent thoughts and behaviors will actually help to bring that outcome to fruition.”
In terms of selling a house or condo, the ideal outcome is that potential buyers enter the property and not only see themselves happily living there, but also believe that the ideal lifestyle they desire is actually possible for them. All this comes together to result in a sale.
That’s where staging props come in.

After: The oils, cookbook and salt & pepper shakers get buyers thinking about cooking in this kitchen.

It’s one way that science and art intertwine. Pablo Picasso once said that, “Everything you can imagine is real.” To me, that’s partly about the power of possibility. And it’s also about the power of suggestion.
As a professional home stager in Calgary, I understand that some people find it challenging to imagine possibilities when it comes to how to use a space. That goes for home sellers who want to earn the most from their investment, and for home buyers who are choosing their next ideal living environment.
That’s why working with a home staging professional is so powerful. Your stager understands how to use staging props effectively to assist in the imagining AND making the most of the power of suggestion. That benefits both the buyer and seller.
