Statistics state that staging your home helps it sell 73% faster! That’s a pretty big deal.
Home staging is a proper presentation of a home, its flow, and its full potential. There’s is a big difference between walking into an empty space and walking into a home that displays a full scope of the flow and the possibilities of space to potential buyers. A 10’x10’ empty square cannot appeal to the naked eye as it could once a designer translates that square into a beautiful cozy space.
“Buyers want to see their lifestyle in a new home.”
Possibilities, when it comes to staging, are endless. From a staging point of view, it doesn’t matter what age your home is. It doesn’t matter the size of the rooms. We will take all that into consideration while coming up with a plan for your home staging, which will display the full potential of the space. It is important to remove items that make your home “yours”. Potential buyers aren’t interested in your stuff. Your home, as hard as it may be, should be completely un-personalized. Family photos, pet paintings, statuettes that mean so much to you should be tucked deep in your heart for the time being and packed away. The silver lining of temporarily separating yourself from your most precious, most meaningful objects and memories is that once you see them again, they will be just so much more darling and precious.
We, as professional interior designers, know of many tricks that can make your space look bigger, lighter, open, breathable, and gorgeous. For smaller spaces, keeping it light, airy, and neutral is the thing to do. Making sure it doesn’t become boring by being too neutral is the key to success. For larger spaces, the combination of light colors and dramatic effects works wonders. Keeping the flow open, not stuffing every corner with an object, not filling every wall with art pieces, having just the right amount of decor is very important. Accessorizing is very important, but tasteful accessories and just the right amount of it is what creates the coziness and the wow factor. Openness creates personal space and people respond to it favorably.
Buyers want to see their lifestyle in a new home. They want to know how they will spend their time in a home, how will the flow of a home translate into their daily activities. That’s what they are looking for when they look for their future home. And that’s exactly what we will show them. Remember, staging is all about a potential buyer. Staging has one goal, and that is to make sure your home and the space within your home is shown in the best light, full of positive favorable possibilities. Knowledge of interior design, understanding of any space, and the right amount of love for designing is the perfect combination to achieve complete success while selling one of the most precious and heartfelt things in your life and your home.
