What is Home Staging?

Home staging is 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. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want. Many people believe that staging raises the value of a property by way of reducing the home’s flaws, depersonalizing, decluttering, cleaning, improving its general condition and landscaping. For vacant homes, prop or staging furniture is used to create a living space where the buyer can imagine themselves living. Properly executed staging leads the eye to attractive features while down-playing flaws.

Staging Benefits

  • Professionally staged homes present and show better than competing houses for sale, including new construction homes and higher-priced houses.
  • Staged properties will sell faster when compared with un-staged houses. From the date of listing until the day of closing, home staging shortens this time frame, even in a slow real estate market.
  • Staged properties can increase the number of offers and selling prices in ALL markets.
  • Buyers view professionally staged listings as “well-maintained”.
  • Buyers’ agents recognize that professionally staged listings are “move-in-ready” and are inclined to show your house.
  • “63% of buyers will pay more for move-in ready homes – source: Maritz.”
  • Photos of professionally staged listings look better in print and web media.
  • Professionally staged listings “STAND-OUT” in prospective buyers’ minds.
