You have questions? We have answers!
We think Wikipedia’s says it best:
“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.”
All homes, whether vacant or occupied, can benefit from staging. Our complimentary initial visit will help to determine what level of staging is best for your home.
No matter how beautiful the home, de-personalizing makes it easier for potential buyers to be able to imagine themselves living in it. Small changes, such as reducing clutter, organizing storage spaces and re-positioning of furniture is needed in nearly every home and can have a huge impact on how the house is viewed.
Your property will attract better offers as a result of having rooms that appear more attractive and useable through using recommendations which are based on actual design principles.
Every home has different needs and requires different levels of staging. Aspects of your home such as location, access and square footage will help determine the price.
How long will it take to get my home ready?
This depends on you. Our on-site consultations are for 1-2 hours for occupied homes and vary based on the size of your property. By the end of the consultation, you will know exactly what needs to be done. You can either take a DIY (do it yourself) approach or have us come in to carry out the work on your behalf. There’s no pressure from us either way.
We stage and redesign homes in one day.
Will staging help me attract more buyers?
Yes. It’s the most economical and effective way to demonstrate to buyers that your place is a better value for money compared to your competitors. Your place will also look better in online marketing photos. Staged homes sell for more and in a shorter time.
Yes. Our number one goal is to figure out exactly what your place needs and how best to do that given your time and budget constraints.
Should I prepare my home the best I can before I contact a home stager?
NO! Our experience has shown us that homeowners will often purge items that could have been used or have chosen wall colors that are not the most effective. It’s best if you let your home stager guide you from the start. That is why you are paying them.

Realtors are specialized in helping you market and sell your home, as well as assisting with negotiations and paperwork. This is what they are trained in and are good at.
