Real Estate/Home Staging Quick Facts

Why Stage a Home when it’s on the market?

  • First impressions are important and lasting. Most buyers look at several houses in a day. It is important that your home be memorable, in a positive way, to make a buyer’s short list.
  • The goal of staging is to market the home, emphasize its best features while downplaying any blemishes.
  • Staging makes a home look spacious and inviting and like a buyer’s stuff would look just as good in each room.
  • Professional Stagers understand the psychology of home buyers and help ‘set the scene’ for buyers to fall in love with a home.
  • Staging has been proven to sell homes up to 50% faster and for 5-15% more than homes that are not staged.
