Will a Home Sell Faster and for a Better Price if it is Vacant or Occupied?

Will a Home Sell Faster and for a Better Price if it is Vacant or Occupied?

The general consensus is that occupied homes sell faster than vacant homes. Buyers have a harder time visualizing themselves living in a vacant home. Vacant homes can appear cold and uninviting. Empty room seem smaller and any flaws become more obvious. 

One of the best ways to counter these negatives is to stage the vacant home with furniture. Even a small amount will help. Staging typically results in buyers spending more time at showings and it makes them feel more comfortable as they look around. 

The bottom line: an occupied home will typically sell faster and for a higher price than a vacant house, but if you have no choice and must sell a vacant home, talk to your realtor for tips and ideas on how to properly stage the home for a successful sale.
