You never get a second chance to make a great first impression. We’ve always been told and in the real estate industry, this is where it’s most conclusive. In this industry most buyers jump to a conclusion about a potential home after just one glance. One way to make your home stand out is to consult with a professional home stager. Hiring a home stager will bring out the creativity in the home as well as make a positive and memorable first impression to prospective buyers.
Stagers not only help eliminate clutter, they advise on decor, add artwork for your space, but also provide advice on adding colors, help in rearranging furniture to make it blend. The enhancement and energy that a stager add to the space by providing color and accessories to help spruce up any space.
A Stager‘s goal is to make a home look like somewhere you can’t wait to live. To fall in love at “first site” and can’t imagine life without this home. If our job is done correctly, buyers will be enticed after seeing online photos or virtual tours of your home to make an offer immediately. Professional stagers aren’t just visual artists, we take into account a buyer’s demographic and buying psychology. We allow that creative nature to come alive and utilize design elements, lightening, color patterns and decor when planning out a space.
If a professional stager isn’t in the budget, you can book a consultation to gain hand‘s on training and a walk through process or take a page out of their handbook by following a few steps:
1. Begin by putting away any unnecessary items and eliminating the clutter.
2. Don’t add to many furniture pieces into the space.
3. Think of prospective buyers, they may not have the same taste or design aspirations and it could drive them away. 4. Remember that less is more when it comes to staging.
The first rule of home staging is to not get too personal. In other words, it’s not the time to bring in your unique style and create a look that appeals to just you. Remove all of your personal belongings and photos. The focus of staging is to showcase your house in the best and most generic way possible. Remember, people have different tastes, so you want a neutral palate that captures the widest net of potential buyers.
