Home staging is the art of decorating a home to help you sell quickly and for top dollar. On average, a staged home sells twice as fast as an un-staged home and for more than the asking price. Most home buyers decide if they are attracted to a home in the first 8 to 10 seconds. Since Only 10% of buyers can see the potential of a home, we will use our skills as home stagers to present your home as the most desirable on the market. This may be as simple as rearranging what you already have or as complex as bringing in new furniture, accessories and art. Most projects lie somewhere in between. Remember you only have one chance to make a first impression.
People start house hunting with a logical list of criteria, but the house they actually buy is more often purchased for emotional reasons . As soon as they say "I love this house" they are willing to look past some of the criteria on their list before they walked in the door. That is why it is so important to pay attention to every detail when staging a home to sell. When done right, home staging provides an excellent return on your investment, helping you to sell your home more quickly and for top dollar.
Q: Why does home staging boost the selling price of my home?
