Jason Delatte | Louisiana Real Estate: Is staging your listing the right move?


When you put your house up for sale, its presentation is important. Things like painting and replacing your carpet will get you a nice return in the form of better offers, but have you considered staging the home? Staging might not seem like a good idea to some people, but you can’t underestimate how important it is to create an emotional connection between the buyer and the house. That’s exactly the goal of staging. To learn more, watch my latest video.

If you are selling your house, how do you know if you should stage it before putting it on the market?

Painting, decluttering, and re-carpeting will probably bring you the cheapest bang for your buck when getting your house ready for the market, but I also recommend staging your property.

Think about it—you see clean, staged homes at the end of every episode of those home-flipping shows that are so popular on TV right now. They all do this because it truly helps them sell the home. The logical thinkers out there might think it’s a waste of your time and money. In real estate, though, logic may make us think, but emotion makes us act.

Of course, you want a buyer to act in the form of bringing a great offer to you for your property. If you’d like any tips about staging a home or about buying or selling real estate in general, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I’d be happy to help!
