A little bit of Staging, can go a LONG way!

I say if you are not Staging your home to Sell it,  you are definitely missing out on a stronger, larger Sales Price! It is proven - Staged Homes sell for more than Vacant homes, or homes without staging.  I can add to what you have, rearrange your own furniture, take away, and make your home more appealing to Buyers to improve your Sales Price.  Yes!  It is a proven fact!  I provide the use of my own Staging at NO COST TO YOU! So what are you waiting for?  

According to the Real Estate Staging Association, professionally listed staged properties simply look better; spend 73 percent less time on the market; typically sell for more money; end up on buyers’ “must see” lists; are viewed as “well-maintained;” and have fewer concessions requested of the seller.

I learned long ago in my Property Managment days - that selling Apartment homes our apartments rented much faster looking Move In Ready. A fabulous space sells quickly compared to a Vacant Apartment. Potential Residents never got a warm and fuzzy feeling when looking at a vacant apartment.  

So when I began Selling Real Estate 15 years ago I began to teach my Sellers what adding a few items, proper furniture placement, removing extra furniture, and adding a few plants, corrects pictures hung on the wall, curtains or fresh towels can do for a home.

After downsizing from having a much larger home, and selling my home in Lake Tahoe, I decided to hang onto the items from those homes and offer them to my Clients for staging.. They were Brand New, especially from my Vacation home so I would take a big loss by selling them, so that is how I began the use of my own Staging for FREE!

TIPS TO GO ALONG WITH STAGING
Get rid of clutter: You can, and should, live more efficiently. More is not necessarily better. Most people have too much stuff. Just getting rid of items or furniture can transform a room. “Most people don’t have to move in an instant. Find storage solutions now. Plan ahead and start boxing things up. You’ll be ready to move or you’ll realize you don’t need these things anyway and just get rid of them,” she said.
Consider repositioning furniture and accent pieces or even using them in different ways: You’ve looked at your dining room a certain way for 10 years, but placing a chair here and moving a painting there may give you a whole new updated look. There’s no need to buy more. Use what you have.
Keep it clean: You’ll enjoy your space more.
Update when you can: You’ll be able to enjoy the house, but when you plan to sell the changes you make will catch buyers’ eyes. Stagers can help homeowners target areas in the home that need the most improvement such as painting or updating bathrooms while staying within your budget.

Below is a home I recently Sold. Compare the BEFORE and AFTER photos you can see for yourself how adding a little bit - goes a long ways.
