HOME STAGING Basics

Like most people, you've probably spent a lot of time personalizing your home to exactly suit your own particular tastes -- and that's great, except when it comes time to sell your home. 

You know the old adage, "You can't please everyone"?  Well, it's never been more true than when applied to the real estate market.  But home staging comes close to being a general crowd-pleaser by creating a neutral, tasteful environment that allows buyers to focus on the potential of your home that the reality of a highly personalized space.

The Home Staging Process

It may sound very simplistic, but before a home can be staged, it first needs to be de-cluttered, simplified, and organized.  A home piled with clutter (which some may just call "cozy") can make your home seem small and dark, when in fact it may be quite spacious and airy.  It's human nature to focus on the state of the room rather than the overall space when first entering a room, so a good first impression is a must.  In today's competitive real estate market, your home may not get a second chance, so why take a chance?

When staging a home, furniture and carefully chosen accessories are placed in such a way that they maximize the light and open space and show off your home's best features.  Some critics will argue that home staging is used mainly to cover up a home's flaws, but any ethical listing agent will tell you that any problems need to either be fixed or disclosed to buyers.  A competent home inspector will turn up problems anyway, so it's better to let potential buyers know ahead of time so that there are no unpleasant surprises or delays when it comes time to close. 

Stage your home to Sell

If you were thinking of selling your home, wouldn't you want to make your home more appealing to potential buyers?  Wouldn't you want to sell your home faster and generate higher offers?  If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you should definitely consider having your home professionally staged.
