Why Stage

Only 10% of buyers have the ability to envision themselves in a home.  Home Staging helps buyers see the home's space and its use without seeing someone else's personality.  Home Staging involves using placement of furniture and accessories in a way that maximizes the positive selling aspects of the home.  Buyers won't have to imagine the home's potential - it will be obvious from the first visit.  Visual appeal is essential in maximizing the price you receive for your home and the expedience with which you can sell your home.


As stagers, our job is to showcase your home. Studies show that staged homes sell more quickly than un-staged properties.  Today’s buyers preview photos of homes before making the visit.  Therefore, the photos of the rooms need to be inviting, stylish and appealing.  Staging can meet all these goals.
