Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want.
Remember that the way you live in a home and the way you sell your house are two totally different things. How you present it will determine how long it will sit on the market and how much money you will make on the sale. As a home staging professional, I want to make that transaction happen as quickly as possible and get you top dollar.
Home Staging is a WIN WIN WIN situation for everyone
- Maximum value for sellers
- Quality property for buyers
- Faster transaction cycle for realtors
It is a proven fact that staged homes sell quicker with a higher return on investment than those not staged. The secret to creating the right impression is being able to envision what buyers will look for in your home.
The ideal time to have a staging consultation done is as soon as you make the decision to sell. This will give you time to address the issues and get the home staged prior to listing. It will give your MLS listing photos the extra boost to make your home stand out against the competition. However, if your home has been on the market for some time and is not getting the showings much less offers, it’s never too late to call us in. Staging your home costs less than making that first reduction in price or accepting a low-ball offer, plus you are more likely to get your asking price and maximize your investment if you stage.
For a low flat-fee, Makes Sense Home Staging and Redesign will do an on-site consultation. We will address issues such as curb appeal, re-arrangement of furniture and lighting, cleanliness, clutter and repairs, as well as paint and wallpaper. You can rely on us to liaise with local contractors, tradespeople, landscapers, and furniture rental businesses to deliver trustworthy, dependable, and cost-effective services to our clients, if required. We can do as little or as much as you want – it is entirely up to you and what your budget will allow for the services you choose, keeping in mind that the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it. Once you have completed the suggested chores, we come back to do the resale redesign or staging of the whole home. We aim to keep costs reasonable by using what furniture and accessories already exist, downplaying the negative features and highlighting the positive points, transforming your home to make it more inviting and memorable to prospective buyers and enticing them to make an offer.
