The fact that you are selling a penthouse is already half the battle – there’s something inherently attractive and sophisticated about a penthouse suite that buyers highly covet. But because penthouses already come with an air of affluence, you need to be that much more diligent in preparing it for sale.
Buyers who make their way into your penthouse will expect a certain style and level of sophistication when it comes to how it is furnished and decorated. You can easily and quickly leave many buyers disappointed if you don’t style and furnish your penthouse the way prospective buyers expect it to be. That’s why penthouse staging is so important.
Having your penthouse sit on the market will also mean the added hassle of having buyers continue to walk in and out of your place. That means you’ll have to consistently keep the unit in tip-top condition at all times, which can start to get quite cumbersome as time passes. It’s tough to make your penthouse appear untouched, all while trying to live your day-to-day life.
It should also be noted that the longer your penthouse lingers on the market, the more ‘stale’ the listing will get. As the listing gets older, buyers will increasingly wonder if there is something wrong with the place. After all, with no one putting in an offer, there’s got to be a problem with the unit, or so buyers may think. That is why it is imperative to engage in penthouse staging even before you list your suite for sale.
Penthouse Staging: Helping You Sell Your Suite For More Money
It’s also been proven that units that have been given the touch of a penthouse staging professional sell for more money. The entire premise behind selling your penthouse is to sell for as much money as possible. Obviously, there is only so much you can ask for your unit, as the market will dictate what your place is worth, and you can only sell for as much as buyers are willing to pay.
But you can certainly take measures to make sure your penthouse demands as much money as possible. With penthouse staging efforts, you can effectively increase the value of your suite, and make the place as attractive as possible to really impress buyers. The more buyers are attracted to your penthouse, the more likely they are to put in higher offers.
That’s what condo staging is all about – it sells a lifestyle to buyers, rather than simply decorating it to appeal to the homeowner. Buyers need to envision themselves calling the place home, and in order to do that, they need to be able to clearly ‘see’ what the space can look like with their belongings. They need to really understand how the space can work for them, and how it can fit their lifestyles.
Buyers are notorious for having trouble trying to see past clutter, bad furniture arrangement, and even empty spaces. While the home may have everything they need, they often have trouble seeing it if the place is not presented appropriately. Penthouse staging helps to showcase how a place can be used to its highest and best use. With effective furniture arrangement, and the right colours and decor, you can effectively show buyers how well a space can work for them.
By choosing the right decor and furniture, making the right arrangements, and eliminating as much clutter and personal artifacts as possible, penthouse staging can work to appeal to a higher number of prospective buyers. And of course, the more buyers find your home appealing, the more likely you will be to obtain offers sooner rather than later!
Penthouse staging truly is a must for anyone who is ready to sell their unit. By presenting your penthouse in a positive light, more buyers will be attracted to your unit, and put in offers.
