What IS Home Staging?
Home Staging is using limited funds, practical creativity and extraordinary expertise to professionally prepare a home to sell so that it becomes infinitely more attractive to potential buyers, sells quickly and for more money.
A professional home stager has the knowledge, talent and resources to objectively view the home as a product and highlight its assets while downplaying its flaws and will partner with your Realtor® to market your home to sell quickly for top dollar.
The home seller has difficulty in viewing their home objectively, while many successful Realtors do not have the time or trade resources to properly stage a home.
I offer a variety of Services for different needs. Visit my Services page for more details: Services Page
What Home Staging is NOT:
Home Staging is NOT decorating!! Home Staging is NOT styling your home to your personal taste. Home Staging is NOT just de-cluttering and placing a few throw pillows on a couch.
How much does it cost?
For as little as a $250 investment (less a 30% discount if you qualify), you will have all of the guidance you need to stage your home with the Detailed Staging Report and photos (DIY Plan). Or, if you prefer, we can stage your home together (Working Together), an extension of the DIY Plan, or I will stage the home (I Do It All).
The cost of having your home professionally staged is just a small fraction of what it would cost to keep your home on the market for more than a month, or for a typical agent-suggested price drop. Click here to see my Pricing.
The Housing Market is good. Why do I need to Stage?
According to the National Association of Realtor's 2017 Staging Report, 58% of Seller's Agents believe that having a home professionally staged increased the value of the home from 1% - 20% while almost a third believe the staging increased the value of the home from 6% - 20%!
For a small investment, even in a good market, why wouldn't you want to get the BEST PRICE for your most valuable asset? See further details here: Top Dollar for your House
Can I just stage my own home?
I offer suggestions for those who feel that they can Stage their own home ~ See details here: DIY Plan However, most homeowner's have styled their homes to best suit the needs and personalities of their family and are emotionally attached to the home.
My specialty is viewing the home objectively, enhancing the natural beauty of the home, downplaying less attractive areas and working with you and your Realtor to market the home effectively to appeal to the highest number of potential buyers.
I also offer a plan where I completely stage the home myself: I Do It All Plan
Can't home buyers use their imagination and look past my decor or empty rooms?
With so many homes on the market, Buyers are looking at photos on the internet before deciding which homes they want to tour. How many times have you flipped through a magazine, only stopping on a page to look at something attractive? Same goes with Buyers today.
Of the 10% who can actually visualize the potential of a home that is not staged, most of them are "investors" who are looking for a good deal and will negotiate a lower purchase price. See my recommendations here: Furnishing Options
Sell Your Home Quickly for Top Dollar Trifecta:
1. PRICE IT RIGHT! A house that is priced too high will sit on the Market, lose Buyer interest and get expensive to maintain. In addition to checking comparable sales prices of homes in the neighborhood, also check the price per square foot. See more by clicking: Pricing a House for Sale
2. PREPARE IT RIGHT! Your house must attract the most number of potential Buyers. This includes de-cluttering, packing, accessorizing, rearranging furniture and creating emotional connection points to make the Buyers fall in love with your house. See more by clicking: Preparing a House to Sell
3. MARKET IT RIGHT! Professional photos (Why Professional Photos?) are crucial for that great first internet impression. A Top Realtor® will advertise on each of the social media platforms as well as in print. Open Houses should be made an event and be held consistently until the house is sold.
