Staging Your Home
Staging your home goes significantly beyond an effort to make it look neat, clean and well-maintained. Similarly to the way stagehands set the stage for Broadway productions, you can stage your home to create a production designed to "WOW" prospective purchasers.
If you have ever visited a new home development and walked through the builder's model home, you know exactly what staging is. Builders have visual coordinators who do extremely elaborate staging jobs- placing furniture, choosing soothing colors for carpets and drapes, hanging artwork on walls, having a bowl of fruit on the kitchen counter, putting flowers arrangements in the living room, or leaving an open book on a table by the bed in the master bedroom. Staging a property this way helps prospective buyers visualize themselves living in the home.
An article in the Wall Street Journal published a study showing that professionally "staged" homes sold quicker and for more money.
