Occupied Home Staging
(using primarily homeowners' furniture and decor)
Benefits of staging an occupied property...
1. Staging will de-personalize.
Buyers should notice your home - not your belongings.
We help get your home de-cluttered, organized and decorated with tasteful simplicity. Why? Because homes that look this way, generate the most interest from buyers! We've all heard the phrase "less is more," and it's very true when you're trying to sell. Change isn't convenient but will often make you money! Staging gives you a competitive edge.
2. Staging will neutralize.
Most homes are decorated to reflect a specific style or taste...it's personalized.
As home stagers, one of our main objectives is to create a more neutral environment in your home. Why? Because a wider range of potential buyers will like your home. Staging is like un-decorating, where individual taste is toned down in favor of broad based appeal. It's decorating to sell.
3. Staging creates better appeal.
Whatever a buyer sees as un-appealing in your property, will begin the process of them ruling out your home - or making a lower offer.
The better something looks, the more value we naturally attach to it. Therefore, every aspect of how you present your home counts. Creating appeal goes beyond de-personalizing and neutralizing. Potential buyers don't want to see work - they want to see move in condition! Fresh paint, well maintained and sparkling clean.
Staging helps eliminate objections before they come up! More appeal = more money.
4. An objective eye.
We all know it's a challenge to be objective about the things we are closest to!
Sometimes it's hard to see flaws or anything wrong at all. Homeowners who can set aside their own ideas, and take themselves out of the equation - have a more sucessful selling experience. During the staging process we can assist by being an objective eye for you. We are there to help identify if there are any weak links that might prevent you from getting top dollar for your property.
A home stager is trained to see your property from a buyer's perspective!
