Doesn’t my realtor stage my home?
Realtors are excellent marketers, and many provide advice about improvements before listing. But you (not the realtor) will arrange for a home staging company to do the work. Your realtor will not move your furniture, hang your art, adjust your accessories, tweak your window treatments, or pack your things. Your home staging company can do all of that, do it quickly, and get you that “model home” look.
Show off the benefits of the home and not your stuff. Don’t you already have enough going on during a move? Let us come in and create the emotional appeal for buyers in order to convert showings to offers.
I’ve already organized and cleaned out my closets. Isn’t that home staging?
Home staging begins when you finish organizing. Through the magic of placement of rugs and furniture, expert use of color, and accessorizing, your house can become the model home that today’s buyers are looking for.
Isn’t home staging just smoke and mirrors?
How often do you make snap judgements and have first impressions? Every day! In the blink of an eye, our brains make decisions that we may never be able to verbalize. Statistics show that buyers form an opinion of a house in just under 15 seconds. An experienced home staging company creates an excellent first and last impression that turns prospects into buyers more willing to pay your target price, and studies show it cuts the time on the market in half!

What if my house is already on the market?
We specialize in staging homes where families are still living (occupied staging). Yes, you can sell your home even though you have kids, pets and you cook dinner there. The faster your home sells, the less you’ll have to worry about keeping it as neat as a magazine! Staged homes sell twice as fast as unstaged homes, so don’t delay. Reduce your stress and get the sale you want. Most of our staged homes receive their target offer (or offers above list price, like the one shown below) within two weeks.
Should I sell my house empty?
Most buyers can’t imagine how your house will look if it’s empty. An experienced home staging company can work wonders with your old furniture, even if you’ve already moved some out. We get creative in staging your home with furniture on site, borrowed pieces, items you may have in storage, selected new accessories, and our staging inventory. In fact, buyers who loved our staged home so much have asked to buy some of the (old) furnishings we’ve used to stage the home. After staging, most sellers say to us, “I never knew it could look so good here. I want to move back in!”
Should I wait to stage?
The staging process can take somewhere between 1 day and 1 year to complete, and we can accommodate your timeline, whatever it is. On average, it takes our team 2-5 days to completely stage a home. It takes additional time for downsizing, packing, donations, and refuse removal. The question is how much work do you want to do, and are you trying to sell before a deadline?
Our home staging company does all the heavy lifting, from decluttering to staging. We also can provide movers, handyman services, and other resources as needed. Our best advice is to stage as soon as you know you want to move. Don’t try to time the market. In fact, we recently staged a home that, after sitting vacant on the market for 6 months, we staged and sold in under 30 days…during the month of December!
