The goal of interior design is to create an environment that reflects the style and taste of the home's owner; the focus of staging is to make the house more marketable by creating the most appealing home to the greatest number of prospective buyers. Far from reflecting a unique style, a staged home should be just impersonal enough to not infringe on a buyer's own sense of style. More simply put....interior design is 'personalizing' one's home and staging is 'de-personalizing'. In today's housing market, it can be a real challenge selling your home. Home staging, the ART of making your home look stylish and inviting to the potential home buyer, is the first step in selling. If your staging is successful you will leave a lasting impression on the home buyer and they will feel they can make your place their new home. Let us help you discover where the problems and 'solutions' are for your home staging needs. It may be anything from a little closet thinning and tidying up to a major design overhaul.
Statistics For Home Staging
1) A staged home sells for more money.
When it comes time to sell a home, 1st impressions count! The more positive the 1st impression, the better the prospects will be. The homeowner's goal is to sell their home quickly and for the highest profit. The buyer's goal is to find a house they would be proud to own. STAGING a home achieves these goals.
The way we live in our homes and the way we sell our houses are two different things. Once a home is placed on the market, it becomes a 'product'. Just like any other product you set out to purchase, it has features and benefits and competition. To compete in a highly competitive market, it must be priced right and look better than the others. The housing market is no different. A house is one of many homes for sale and it must be presented to buyers, in the BEST POSSIBLE way.
Staging a home is essentially showing a buyer what they want to see. Before the buyer decides to buy, they need to mentally move their belongings into a home. If a home is 'over' or 'under' done, it is difficult for most buyers to visualize how their own items will look. When viewing a new listing, home buyers decide within a few minutes if the house has enough appeal to bother looking more closely at it's possibilities. Home staging enhances the level of appeal and allows the buyer to think ''I COULD LIVE HERE.''
