What is Staging?

Staging is not decorating. Although there are some components of interior decorating used in the staging process, staging and decorating are two very different things. When you decorate a home you do so to meet the owner's personal taste. When you stage, you create a vision of the home to appeal to potential buyers.

The Staging Process

 

Depersonalize. We recommend you remove family, religious, and personal photos. Show off your space, not your personal belongings.

Declutter. Your moving, right? So, you should pack away everything you don’t need.

Neutralize. We suggest you tone down vibrant colors. Don’t let your color preference turn away a potential buyer.

Clean, clean, clean. We recommend you hire a professional to make your house spotless. Buyers see everything!

Stage. Finally, we will make a plan to ensure buyers have a memorable first impression of your home, one that will turn your "For Sale" sign to "Sold".

Top 3 Reasons You Should Stage

 

#1 - It Decreases Selling Time

Home staging decreases the listing time, homes that are staged sell faster than homes that are not staged. As reported by StagedHomes.com ®, “94% of ASP® Staged Homes sell on average in 29 days or less.”

#2 – You Will Get a Return on Your Investment

Not only does Home Staging help to increase the sale of your home, it provides the 2nd highest rate of return on your investment and it’s cost effective (HomeGain.com Inc.).

#3 – It's Cost Effective

Investing your money upfront in Home Staging will cost you less than your first price reduction. For example, a 10% price reduction on a home listed at $200,000 is $20,000. The average staging cost is less than $2,000. Visit Zillow.com for the most recent percentage of price reductions in your area.
