Q?

Why should I have my home professionally staged rather than doing it myself?

A.

A professional stager know how to enhance the best features of your home and minimize the flaws. Professional stagers understand what buyers are looking for and make the property more appealing from a buyers stand point. They are an objective eye. Homeowners are emotionally attached, therefore, making it difficult for them to be objective. Professional stager know what buyers are looking for. They understand how to create a “mood” that will feel inviting while getting you the highest return on your investment.

Q?

Can’t potential buyers just imagine what the space can be with their stuff?

A.

No! 93% of buyers cannot visualize the potential of a home. Having it professional staged will we take the guess work and frustration out of it for the potential buyer. This is true of vacant properties as well. Most people cannot visualize size and scale, potentially leaving doubt that their king bed or very expensive sectional will not fit. Once there is doubt, there is doubt!! This is why staging a vacant property with rental furniture and accessories will help potential buyers understand and a “see” potential in a room.

Q?

How do I know Home Staging works?

A.

It’s a proven fact!  Staged homes sell quicker and usually for more money than if the property was not staged. Potential buyers usually make up their mind within the first 15 seconds whether or not they are even interested in moving past the entrance...within 7 seconds of even walking in the front door depending on how the home presents and how the curb appeal is! A professional stager understands this and knows how to create that WOW! factor to make them want to continue and see the rest of the house!

Q?

How much will it cost to have my home professionally staged? Is it expensive?

A.

Every property is different. Furnished homes are more time consuming then vacant homes as there is more to move, remove and clean/de-clutter.  There are different services to suit your needs and budget. Refer to the “Services” section and pricing to decide which package is best for you.

Q?

Is it expensive?

A.

Staging is an investment...not an expense.  It adds value to your home. Whether the market is a “Buyers Market” (Bad) or a “Sellers Market” (good) the goal of a professional stager is you receiving top dollar. The last thing you want to do it help sell your competition! A professionally staged home usually sells quicker and for more money, which after-all is the end GOAL!  The longer your home sits on the market, the more it costs you to carry it? That is money gone! Buyers are willing to pay more for a house that is move-in ready.
