What is Home Staging?
Home Staging is professionally preparing homes for sale so that they appeal to
the most amount of buyers and generate the highest price in the least amount of
time on market. Staged Homes traditionally present themselves better than the
competition by being clean, clutter-free, and ready to show to prospective buyers.
Home Staging is NOT decorating, fluffing, interior design or redesign. Instead,
Home Staging is detailing, de-cluttering, depersonalizing and preparing a seller's
home to give it a "model home" appearance so that the potential buyer can "see"
themselves living in the home.
The moment homeowners decide to put their homes on the market the properties
they have lived in effectively become products. Their real estate agents assess a sales
price, devise a marketing plan to get the home sold and prepare to put the listing in
the multiple listing service.
So what can consumers and their agents do to catch the attention of home buyers?
They need to:
Make the first impression of the home positive and inviting
Enable buyers to envision themselves living in the home
Show the full potential of the home
Make the home visually appealing for online listings
In short, sellers and the real estate agents representing them need to Stage their
homes with the assistance of an Accredited Staging Professional®. Staging gives
sellers the competitive edge and will almost always cost less than a first price
