Do you really need a Professional Home Stager?

This is a question that many have asked when it comes time to sell. Those who answered “yes,” have sold their homes more quickly and/or for a better profit. So, the answer is simple, staging sells homes. Doing the math is pretty easy on this equation. There are hundreds of homes on the market in your area and you’ll need to set yours apart from the others.

Does the home grab a buyer’s attention without any changes? It may or may not be, but through home staging it will. It’s beyond decorating and cleaning. It’s about perfecting the art of creating moods. Staging makes your house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, more loving and, best of all, it makes home buyers want to buy it.

Contrary to what you might think, it’s about more than preparing the house for sale. Staging is what you do after you’ve cleaned, decluttered, painted, made minor repairs; it’s all about dressing the house for sale. Staging is creating an atmosphere for viewers to enjoy.

It should be as if there was literally no effort made to create it, as if this is the natural day-to-day appearance of the home. Smell plays a large part in the showing of a home as smell is one of our strongest senses. Pet odor is a big drawback when showing a home so if you have critters make sure to neutralize the odor and keep them outside or at another location when showings occur. At the end of the staging process your home should be worthy of a magazine shoot, so take the time to plan your staging carefully.
