Staging the Perfect Home


What would you say if we told you there is proven success in staged homes that sell faster and for more money nearly every single time? Home for home, a comparison almost always shows homeowners that don’t pay attention to fine tuned details end up losing lots of potential buyers. Here are some common questions about the home staging process.
What Exactly Do Home Stagers Do?
Depending on how much needs to be done, a stager can provide anything from a simple consultation as to some things that can be changed around the home to update it, to as much as completely setting up an entire space. Some clients need some direction and prefer a design consultant to advise on colors, current trends and things that pique the interests of buyers today. Other clients prefer a complete overhaul of their space and put their entire home in the hands of a stager.
What Are the Various Levels of Staging?
Whether a design consultation advises on how to clear up clutter, neutralize décor or rearrange furniture – an often-used service provided by home staging companies involves a detailed report that identifies areas of need in the home. The next level involves a carefully thought-out strategy of furniture placement so that photographs show a warm and inviting space that appeals to buyers. Yet another aspect of home staging is when a vacant space is brought to life with the use of household furniture and accessories owned by the company.
Who Needs Their Home Staged?
Anything from a small vacant home, to a medium-sized condo or a luxury estate will benefit from staging and specialized techniques implemented by staging companies. A unique blend of interior design with marketing and real estate savvy, all combine to help you present your home in its best light – ideal for getting it sold fast, for top dollar and with the least amount of hassle.
What Are Some Basics to Get Started?
The first thing to do when evaluating your home for how presentable it will be on the market, is to note how much clutter is in the home. Reduce, reorganize and reset your home’s décor, leaving a clean and neutral color palette so buyers can visualize their own lives in the space.
Next, work to remove most personal artifacts around the home like a fridge with grocery lists, personal lists and family photos or awards and trophies or unique artwork. The idea is to show the home for what it is without overpowering buyers’ senses with hard to see through décor that might not suit their own design tastes.
Finally, don’t be afraid to spend a little money updating the home to today’s design standards and trends. Common updates include the removal of popcorn ceilings, replacing outdated brass fixtures with brushed nickel or other metal finishes and updating bathrooms or kitchens.
