Staging Your Home

Thinking in terms of potential buyers viewing your home will make all the difference in your home’s sale.  Home staging is all about defining spaces, neutralizing décor and enhancing the visibility of potential buyers to “see themselves inside a brand new home.”  The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money. Staging techniques focus on improving a property's appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive home that anyone might want.

Staging a home that is for sale is one of the smartest decisions a seller can make.   Home staging can turn a cold and lifeless looking property into a warm and inviting home in a potential buyer’s mind. 

The art and science of staging a home for sale has been around for only about five years, but in the downturn of the real estate market, home sellers must be able to stand above the crowd when they market and position their properties for sale.

It’s not about your taste anymore.  Potential buyers start shopping with logic, but they buy homes based on emotion. You want them to fall in love.

It’s estimated that only 10 percent of home buyers are capable of visualizing what a house could become if it needs work, and that potential buyers usually make their mind up about a house within 10 seconds. Because 80 to 90 percent of buyers start shopping online, it is crucial to provide them with great photographs of your home that will make that great first impression and attract them to see more.
