Why Stage?

Vacant City Condo Dining Room after stagingWant to sell your home quickly but not sure how to make that happen?

Prospective home buyers have lots of potential homes to choose from, so how can you make yours stand out from the rest? In reality, many home buyers start looking for homes online. They quickly scan many online property listings and pick a handful to go visit in person. Prepping your home before you list it and taking photos of your home that have a “WOW” factor are especially important in getting your home’s listing to stand out from the rest.

For many homeowners, putting their house on the market is stressful time:

  • They don’t know how to objectively prep their home, without breaking the bank.
  • They don’t know how to get their online property listing to attract more showings.
  • They constantly need to keep their home picked up, clean and presentable.
  • They worry about the possibility of having to reduce the list price because their home is not selling.

What is staging?

Staging (also known as real estate staging) is the process of preparing a residential (or commercial property) for sale. For residential properties, this is accomplished by “staging” the property so that it appeals to the greatest number of potential buyers, showcasing the property’s best features and helping potential buyers see themselves living in the home.

With staging, the focus is on de-cluttering and neutralizing your personal style, while repositioning items and potentially renting furniture and accessories to create an amazing space that will make a positive first impression. You’ll be surprised how much can be done within a short amount of time and within just about any budget.

Why should I stage my home?
