So you’ve decided to sell your home! Prepare to embark on one of the more chaotic adventures of a lifetime, complete with late nights, deep cleanings, and hectic showings on top of it all.
In the midst of all this chaos, you might not stop to think about home upgrades—namely flooring upgrades. You may wonder what the point of that is. After all, your home won’t be your home for that much longer; why on Earth would you spend all that money and time putting in an upgrade you won’t even get to appreciate? Moreover, you want to be able to afford your new home, and investing in even vinyl flooring might feel in direct opposition to that goal.
Yes, you read that right; it’s called home staging. Professional home stagers look over your home and discuss, down to the tiniest detail, what investments you can make and clutter-clearing tactics you can take that will make your home more attractive to potential buyers. This industry is no fluke, either. According to the Home Staging Resource, in a 2018 survey of over 4,200 homes, 85% of the staged homes sold for more than their unstaged competitors, even when location was controlled.
But what does this industry’s success alone say about flooring renovation to sell?
