What is Staging®?
Staging® is the process of preparing any home
for sale, regardless of price or location.
Using a proven set of guidelines, the house is
reviewed for ultimate & maximized impact on buyers. Once the recommendations
are implemented & completed the home is designated a Staged® Home.
Showcasing your home's best features takes
more than de-cluttering a house; it's creating favourable impressions everywhere
the eyes rest. Starting at the curb-side, moving throughout the house to the
very back edge of the property, everything needs be reviewed.
History of Staging®
Barb Schwarz was in residential real estate in
1972, teaching sellers how to diplomatically coax home owners into preparing
their homes for sale without upsetting or offending the owner. She would show
the sellers by preparing the home, "set the scene and how to set the
stage" they would sell the homes for top dollar. She used this phrase many
times until the word "Staging" became well known all over the United
Why Should You Stage?
Thoroughly preparing your house for sale makes
a great first impression on prospective buyers!
The message buyers receive is "this house
won't be on the market long, if we want it, we had better put an offer in
NOW!" Makes buyers want to move in, not on.
Prospective buyers make a decision within a
few seconds of walking through your front door. They will spend the rest of the
tour confirming that decision whether it is favourable or not. It's important to
appeal to the widest range of people previewing your house, buyers need to be
able to imagine themselves living in your house, because buyers only know what
they see not the way it is going to be. The way you live in your home and the
way we need to market to sell your house are two very different things.
