Should You Furnish A House Or Leave It Empty?
In most cases of home sales, a home is best displayed with furniture. Looking at the fan, one floor and four empty walls, make it difficult for buyers to visualize their own belongings in the house. If buyers can not see themselves living on the property, they probably will not buy it.
Decorating the house can mean the difference between selling it or expiring the listing. Decorating it usually brings a higher price for the house; Some decorators estimate that sellers earn between 7% and 10% when the house is properly furnished. It really does not cost to furnish, pay to do it.
Furnishing a living room, like any other room in the house, is done to evoke emotions because buyers need to fall in love with the house. They buy by emotion, not by logic.
For example, look at the photo below. Spacious but not very inviting.
Now, look at the below picture. See the difference?
