Offering staging, organization and decorating to make your home more inviting and functional for you and your lifestyle.
We often talk a lot about “curb appeal” in real estate. Curb appeal of course is one of those hyperbolic phrases we use when a home we’re selling looks great from the street. In many cases, curb appeal will make or break a buyer’s decision to stop and take a look at the inside of your home.
That being said, “curb appeal” works best when the INSIDE of your home is as equally appealing to a buyer as the OUTSIDE!
What is Home Staging?
Another word we real estate professionals use when working with sellers is “staging.” Staging basically refers to the process of setting the “stage” in your home’s appearance to maximize its size and benefits. Why is this important?
As we live in our homes longer, we tend to accumulate “stuff” that makes us more comfortable in our surroundings. In some cases, the “stuff” may look and feel great to us, but when it comes to selling our home, the “stuff” may not create the right atmosphere for the buyer. In other cases, the “stuff” has taken over. Seller’s must remember that our “comfort clutter” may inadvertently make their home look small or cramped to the buyer.
A professional home stager can add the right touches to help declutter your home, and embellish the decor of a room (or all of your rooms) so that it enhances the buyer’s desire to see themselves as the new owners.
Do Staged Homes Sell Faster?
According to statistics from the International Association of Staging Professionals®, 95% of staged homes sell on average in 11 days or less, and for 17% more money.
