What is Home Staging?

Home Staging is the art of preparing a home for sale so that it sells quickly and for a higher profit margin. Home buyers respond mostly to a home on an emotional level rather than a rational level. Homes that are staged properly help the buyer connect emotionally. Staged homes help the broadest number of buyers see the potential of the home and help them visualize their family living in the home and enjoying the space.

Why Do I Need Home Staging?

Whether it is a "buyers" market or a "sellers" market, every homeowner who is serious about selling their property needs to take advantage of the benefits of home staging. There is a big difference between living in a home and selling that home. A professional home stager will see the beauty and architectural features of a home that should be featured. Sellers become attached to their home and furnishings and the way they have decorated. It is much harder for a seller to detach themselves emotionally from the home and see it the way a buyer would see it. By using the services of a professional home stager, sellers are able to use the objective eye and expertise of the stager to make sure no stone is unturned when it comes to preparing their home to go on the market.

As more and more people become acquainted with the term "home staging" and more realtors push the service, it will become more necessary than ever before to stage a property before putting it on the market.

Staging Statistics

Since only 6% of home sellers currently utilize the benefits of a home stager, their properties really stand out from other properties in a similar price range. In addition to that, staged properties typically sell in a matter of weeks, often generating multiple offers and a bidding war.

What is Interior Redesign?

Home Staging is like putting together the pieces of a puzzle.

Interior Redesign differs from home staging because the homeowner continues to dwell in the space. Instead of decluttering the space and depersonalizing it to sell the home, the redesigner works with the furniture and accessories the owner already has, and gives the home a professional "make-over". Proper placement is one of the most important foundational keys to great design. Unfortunately it is the most neglected area of design.

We have been trained to provide expert placement design strategies to work to help you make the most of your space, to feature architectural elements in a room, the arrange the room so that the optimum beauty and function is enhanced.

Most redesign services are accomplished in a day or less and require a minimum amount of time and effort for the homeowner.
