Home staging is not only one of the most effective marketing strategies in luxury real estate; it has also become an increasing expectation among potential buyers. Statistics show that over 81% of buyers find it “easier to visualize their property as their future home when it is staged”, and the art that you choose to display plays a critical role in this. Art has the ability to accentuate a home’s very best features, but most importantly, it serves to create a connection between a house and its potential buyer.
Real Estate Competition and Ways to Stay Ahead
In a highly saturated real estate market that is increasingly using art as part of the home staging process, fine art can be what truly sets a home apart from its competition. But it doesn’t stop there; besides being a savvy marketing tool for realtors, fine art staging also brings a solution to the current financial suffering of art galleries. By working with a fine art home staging service like the Carousel Art Group for example, galleries are able to reach a very targeted demographic and promote the work of their artists. It is truly a win-win opportunity where art sells real estate, and real estate sells art.
How Art Sells Real Estate
It is no surprise that fine art staging is becoming an increasing trend in luxury real estate. Realtors and developers often use more affordable prints for display, however, these prints can feel temporary and subconsciously remind a buyer that they are strangers in this new space. What sets fine art apart is its ability to make a bold statement regarding the property’s value. More and more realtors recognize that fine art enriches the aesthetic of staging and creates a relatable experience for potential buyers as they navigate an unfamiliar property. From the color scheme to the way the art is displayed, every detail works to create an impression that leads to that buying decision.
Considering the targeted demographic in luxury real estate, the quality of the art you display is paramount. Apart from creating an atmosphere that will leave a positive impression and inspire buyers, realtors can use an engaging story about the art and the artist as a powerful marketing tool. Going beneath the surface and connecting with potential buyers based on their interests creates an interpersonal relationship between the buyer and the seller.
