Forget Staging, 'White Box' Instead
In high-end luxury markets, it turns out less is often more. Instead of maximizing luxe features, sellers are stripping their pads down to bare bones and commanding a higher sales price in the process. The trend is called "white boxing," and it's all the rage among the aﬀluent who often buy a luxury property only to redo it in the style that suits their unique design taste and lifestyle. For buyers who place high value on personalizing a home and making it their own—it's much more appealing to buy a space that's already stripped.
The stripped property can also have the benefit of appearing brand-new in cases where the existing design and features were dated. White-boxed properties are the ultimate blank canvas for today's luxury buyer, who often favors "designerready " over "movein ready,"
Whether you are selling a luxury home or not, it is always beneficial to declutter and minimize your belongings for a quick sale. If you are thinking about selling ask your real estate professional if white boxing may be for you.
