What does it mean to stage a home?

Staging a home when selling it is gaining in popularity.  Our studies find that 53% of listing agents believe that staging decreases market time.  83% of buyers’ agents think that staging helps buyers visualize the property as their future home.   A well-considered plan for staging your home will help buyers love it for all the right reasons.  So what does it mean to stage a home?

First and foremost staging a home can mean subtraction.  Eliminating the clutter and all the extras in your home can go a long ways towards improving its appeal.  You may love all the extra items in your home, but a buyer will probably only be distracted by them.

Staging a home can mean simple addition too.  Oftentimes, our clients are about 90% of where we want them to be.  Some of our clients have already packed up a bunch of their belongings.  In this case we’ll bring in some the colorful extras that add to the appeal of a property.  This might include pillows, towels, and other knickknacks.

In many cases we will take an empty home and furnish the main areas… kitchen, dining room, living room, family room, and master bedroom.  Staging brings life to the home and makes it more appealing, both in the marketing materials and in person.

Reach out to me to discuss selling your home and we can review all your staging options.  I have some great professionals in the staging business that are here to help you make more money when you sell, and sell faster too!
