What is Home Staging?

Staging Is:

  • The art of turning your home or office space into a product that is ready for sale.
  • Setting the stage so that each potential buyer can see themselves living there.
  • NOT decorating!
  • Your most effective Marketing Tool!

Staging Tips

DEPERSONALIZE:

  • You have just 15 minutes to grab a buyers interest. Every minute spent looking over your stuff takes away from them envisioning themselves living in that space.

DECLUTTER:

  • Less is more!! No matter what the buyer (or Realtor or Appraiser) says, they cannot see through the clutter and extra furniture, etc. You have to box it up anyway so go ahead and box it up early.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL:

  • Draw attention to the properties finer points including the outside, garage and cellar.

REPAIRS/MAINTENANCE:

  • Make all the repairs necessary so that your buyers will want to offer the highest price for your property. Most buyers don’t want to be saddled with repairs before they move in.
