Having your home professional staged by a Certified Home Stager is essential before putting it on the market. We provide this service free of charge and it's not an easy task. Our home stagers consult sellers value-enhancing home improvements, coordinate the work with our trusted list of vendors, and then stage the home to make it more appealing to the largest audience of buyers. Making your home as appealing as possible increases your number of showings, the numbers of offers you receive and subsequently the amount of time and money your home will sell for!
What is home staging?
Wikipedia defines staging as "The act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money."
For us, home staging it includes color coordination, interior design, clutter clean-out, and renovation consultation/coordination. These activities prepare our home sellers, vendors and photographers to work together before we market the property to a large audience with our advanced internet marketing program.
Below is a graph of what the effects of staging are on the market.
To hear more about our renovation services, see our Before and After Video Gallery and fill out a schedule form to talk about what we can do for you.
Below is a real life example of a property where we allowed an agent to preview the home before it was staged for sale and what happened after they received the virtual tour when the property was marketed on MLS.
