With over 15 years experience as an Interior Designer, I bring my expertise and creativity into staging my sellers' homes to show in the best possible way to buyers. Statistics across the country show staging your home for sale using a professional can lead to shorter market time and higher offers. I also have a trusted team of professional organizers, cleaning crews, painters, etc.. that all can help get your home in top shape before selling. Calling me early before you plan to list is key. I usually suggest setting up a consultation with me 4-5 months prior to when you want the home to be on the market. Let me do all the logistics and it will lead to a much less stressful time that moving can often be.
What is home staging, anyway?
The goal of home staging is to show a property in a way that would appeal to the widest array of buyers. This helps them envision your house as their own, rather than through the lens of your personal tastes.
Using specific techniques like furniture removal and rearranging, painting in neutral tones, and placing selective accents, the idea is that home staging can dramatically transform how a home presents without you having to do any major renovations.
Moreover, the concept of staging has been popularized in the public mind through the rise of social media and home improvement shows on TV.
There’s over 1.1 million posts under the hashtag #homestaging on Instagram of professionals and homeowners sharing tips, ideas, and their staging work. And if you think about it, pretty much every HGTV show (like Fixer Upper or Property Brothers) has a home staging-inspired component.
It’s those moments at the end of the program when the host places that fresh vase of flowers on the table or puts a few yellow pillows on the couch for those final touches. In fact, 34% of sellers stated that television influenced their decision to stage their homes like how it would appear on these shows.
NAR reports that 44% of buyers start their home search online and 98% of buyers frequently use the web to search for homes. So agents use home staging to “wow” virtual viewers from the very first picture.
Here’s what top agents say about the resale value of home staging:
- 67% of top agents say that home staging helps a seller fetch more money for their house at resale.
- Over 50% say that staging increases a home’s value from anywhere between 1%-10%.
- Another 25% believe that staging doesn’t increase a property’s sale price, but helps attract buyers to the home and secure an offer. The more buyers you have bidding on your house, the more leverage you have as a seller.
- 92% of top agents find home staging to be beneficial toward selling the property in general
