Staging Your Home 

A staged home sells, on average, 17% higher than an unstaged home.*

What is Staging? Staging is the art of preparing a home for a sale regardless of its price, condition, or location.  It is the most effective way to get the most money for the sale of your home. The buyer is more apt to take interest in your home if it is presented in an orderly and somewhat stylized fashion. Think of selling your home as being on an interview. You wouldn’t go to an interview in everyday clothes.  You would get a new suit.  Staging is that new suit!
Watch the video below for an example of a well staged home.

What is an Accredited Staging Professional?
ASP Stagers and ASP Real Estate Agents are true Professionals trained under strict guidelines using proven Staging techniques developed for over 30 years. When you bring your home on the market and prepare your house for sale always hire an ASP because they are the true leaders in the Home Staging and Real Estate Industries.

How does it work?
Staging means creating broader appeal for your home and may include:

  • Selling the space, not the furnishings.
  • Applying a fresh coat of paint.
  • Adding color and interest.
  • Removing all clutter.
  • Removing any and all things that personalize your home.
  • Landscaping your yard.
  • Minimizing the flaws of your home.Staged homes have an advantage over non-staged homes.  It is quite common for home buyers to make a decision about a home within seconds of viewing.  If your home is lacking in curb appeal, buyers might decide to avoid your home altogether.  If two homes are competing for a sale in the same area, the staged home will often be the victor.

    We provide this valuable service to our sellers.  We can visit your home and provide a plan for you to improve its appearance.  You can choose to do the work yourself or you can outsource it at an additional cost.  One cost cutting option is to rent the furniture to use during staging.  We will customize a plan specifically to meet your needs and resources

    A 2003 HomeGain survey of 2,000 real estate agents who said for the relatively small expense of cleaning, decluttering, lightening and brightening, and home staging, home sellers realized an average increase in sales price of $5,645 — typically more than the cost of staging.

  • Below are a few examples of what a home can look like before staging and after staging.
