You have only one chance at a true first impression.

A potential buyer makes up their mind within 90 seconds of first being in the home and is most likely forming an opinion as he or she pulls in the driveway. Curb appeal actually starts at the curb! This leaves little room for error. To achieve the best possible outcome, a home should be presented at its maximum potential the first time around.

Home staging is about illusions.

Staging makes your house look more spacious and inviting. It is estimated that only 10% of home buyers can visualize the potential of a home. When a home is empty, buyers will focus on perceived imperfections. Staging isn't just adding or removing furniture, its about having the right size and type of furniture which makes all the difference in terms of presentation. A professional interior designer/stager with experience and a creative eye can use proper lighting and accessories to transform a space from blah to beautiful. From the time the buyer steps through the front door, you want them to be able to envision their family living in that home.

A properly staged home is a sold home.

According to US Housing and Urban Development, a staged home sells for 17% higher than an empty home. Not only does staging help you get more for your home, it helps you sell it faster. In controlled tests, selling identical homes professionally staged vs. those not staged, the professionally staged homes sold in only 45 days where the un-staged homes sold in 102 days - less than half the market time!
