Our goal is to make your home appeal to the highest number of buyers, selling the property more quickly and for more money. Professionally staged homes sell on a conservative average for 6% more than those that are not. Owner occupied or vacant, we transform both the look and feel of a home, creating a welcoming environment that draws buyers in and makes a lasting impression. Because purchasing a home is mostly an emotional decision, your beautifully staged home will sell a “lifestyle” where buyers can imagine themselves.
Owner Occupied Staging
You love your home just as it is… comfortable, familiar, and full of great memories. This is why most of us have a hard time looking at our homes objectively. But when potential buyers enter a home, they can lack the imagination to see past everyday clutter. People frequently decide whether they like a house within minutes of entering, so the home must make a great first impression. A staging expert can more clearly evaluate strengths and weaknesses. A staged home will appear more spacious and inviting, capturing the buyer’s interest.
If you have moved out and the house is vacant, you may have trouble selling for a variety of reasons:
- Empty spaces lack warmth- your house may seem cold and impersonal.
- Buyers tend to focus on flaws/wear & tear in vacant homes because every imperfection is exposed.
- People have a difficult time visualizing how they might use the spaces.
- Older, dated homes look especially tired and in need of renovation when they are vacant.
- Tract homes lack individuality and character, and this is especially obvious when they are empty.
Staging a vacant home brings it to life!
