Home Staging - A Valuable Tool

Home Staging is the art of decorating a home to sell quickly and for top dollar.

It may be as simple as rearranging what you already have or as complex as bringing in new furniture, accessories and art. Most projects lie somewhere between these two extremes.

People shop with logic but they buy with emotion.

If your home looks fantastic and the buyer can immediately imagine living there, they are more likely to make an offer.

It's incredibly difficult to view your own home with the eyes of a highly critical buyer. A professional Home Stager can objectively assess how best to use what you already have and determine if anything else needs to be added.

You're emotionally involved in your home and the contents so it's hard to be completely objective. It's hard to see your collection of beloved family photos the way a stranger will when they're trying to imagine themselves living in your home.

You've been living there so long there are many things you don't even see anymore. Have you stopped noticing that really ugly wallpaper in the kitchen? Have you become used to tripping on the large carpet wrinkle running down the center of your living room? Did you stop caring that your bed looks like it belongs to the dog or your kids?

Ask your Century 21 Macintyre agent for advice on home staging - it could make a difference.
