A lot of clients ask me if they should stage their home prior to selling. Here is my professional opinion.
If you have a vacant home and are moving out of the area before the home will be listed, I highly recommend staging your home because it will sell much quicker. The problem buyers have with vacant homes is that they have a hard time imagining how they will live in the space.
Staging does the thinking for them and provides sellers with nice, new furniture that makes any home look like a model home. All of a sudden, buyers can see their furniture and how it will look in the home. It’s an amazing thing.
In the age of HGTV, we are used to seeing perfect homes. This has unfortunately skewed our opinion of what a home should look like.
If you have a vacant home and decide you don’t want to stage it, make sure it’s completely vacant. Leaving a piece of furniture or two in there will simply confuse buyers. It should either be fully staged or completely vacant.
If you don’t have a vacant home and, in fact, have a house full of furniture, that’s great. We offer a free, two-hour staging consultation for all of our clients. A professional stager will come into your home, go room by room, and reimagine your furniture and decorations throughout the home in order to appeal to the highest amount of buyers possible.

It’s never a bad idea to stage your home. In fact, I have received multiple offers on a staged home that I listed just a few hours ago. There’s your proof.
If you have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
