Home Staging: What is it and why do we need to do it?



You don’t go to a job interview without brushing your hair or wearing last weekend’s paint clothes right? So why would you try to sell your house without putting in your best effort to make it looks its best? 

This is where “Home Staging” comes in.

What is Home Staging?

Home staging is more than cleaning and decorating, it’s about making your home look bigger, cleaner, warmer and more loving, and most importantly, make people want to buy it!

I was reading an article about Home Staging, and the author made a great note. “Home Staging is about creating an illusion. It’s how David Copperfield would sell a house!”

What are some examples of Home Staging?

There are a lot of tricks and techniques professional home stagers use to add the finishing touches to a home. Some of the things they add to a home are:

·         Mirrors                                    

·         Plants

·         Silk Flowers

·         Floor & Table Lamps

·         Area and Throw Rugs

·         Ottomans

·         Small Love Seats

·         Afghans

·         Pillows

·         Inflatable Queen-size Beds

·         Baskets

How much does it cost?

When you list with me, it’s FREE! Every Seller has the option to meet with a member of my team who specializes in Home Staging. Did you know that homes that are staged receive 5.8% more for the selling price? 5.8% of a $240,000 property=$13,920.
