A myth about staging…

Most people have somewhat of an idea as to what home staging is — but if you asked most people, they would say it is simply some painting and moving furniture.  This could not be further from the truth.  Staging a home requires strategy.  It requires a detailed plan, extensive planning and efficient execution.  Staging has nothing to do with my design aestetic or the homeowner’s design aestetic…staging is about showcasing the home’s best features and creating an environment where potential buyers can see themselves moving in.  We take out the homeowners personality, but not the home’s personality.  The goal is to maintain a homey, warm feeling within the home without the homeowner’s  personal tastes distracting potential buyers.  So when you look at staging from this perspective, it allows you to see that staging is not just money going out, but staging is an INVESTMENT in your home.  You are preparing your home for sale.  Staging is a marketing tool.  Staging will set your home apart from the rest of the competition.  So hopefully this will help debunk the myth that staging is simply a little painting and rearranging furniture!
