“You never get a second chance to make a great first impression.”

First impressions mean everything!

That statement that rings true in real estate! Buyers are quick to jump to conclusions about a home as soon as they glance at it. That’s why more sellers are turning toward professional home stagers to prepare for a sale.
A lot of what staging accomplishes occurs on a subconscious level—creating a positive link between your house and the prospective buyer. It’s easy enough to repaint after moving in, but first impressions are difficult to undo.

With the vast majority of buyers searching first on the Internet for homes, photos and virtual tours are extremely important in the selection process. Home staging will give sellers key advantages.

A professional stager will:

Help eliminate clutter: That means taking down personal items that add to the unnecessary clutter such as diplomas, pictures, trophies, and other knick-knacks. Removing a bulky piece of furniture may be necessary to widen a walk area or make a room feel spacious.

Unstaged overly crowded room gives the impression that the house is too small!

 

Consider buyer demographics and buying psychology:   Home stagers use design elements in planning out the rooms, space and lighting. They understand traffic patterns to highlight positive attributes of a home while downplaying its negative features. They know not to overwhelm potential buyers with wild colors and furniture, even if you think it makes your home “special.”

Remember, making your home look like a model rather than lived-in can make all the difference in selling a home. That’s why I offer seller’s a free home staging consultation to sellers who list their home with me.  I have an experienced stager / designer on my team that shapes up your home before it’s photographed. We will both roll up our sleeves that day and move furniture, carry boxes, clean up, and whatever else needs to be done. The value of having a professional with an eye for design is golden!  Every little detail makes a huge difference!
