Home Staging

Staging is a cost effective way to showcase the great details of your home and downplay the less than wonderful details. Staging is NOT remodeling! It is about using your things and your space in the most creative way possible without spending a lot of money.

As professional stagers we can view your house like a potential homebuyer would, then set the scene so that buyers can imagine living there. We simplify and streamline the furniture in a room for better traffic flow and to enhance its spaciousness. Neutralizing a too personal color scheme or adding touches of color or accessories can make all the difference in a quick sale.

Vacant homes that feel cold and lack visual landmarks take longer to sell. Home stagers often bring in rental furniture and create "vignettes," say, a seating area in front of the fireplace.

According to International Association of Home Staging Professionals® and®, homes listed for sale after staging sold within 32 to 42 days. In either case, the homes sold for an average of $26,000 more than expected.
