What is Home Staging?
Home Staging is the very best proven way to get top dollar for your home as you prepare it for sale. As defined by the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA), Home Staging is the act of preparing and showcasing residential or commercial property for sale. Homes that are Staged with a professional Home Stager sell faster and for more money! This is because Staging sets the scene throughout the house to create immediate buyer interest in your property. This will then lead to your home selling for the highest possible price in today’s market. Remember, “The way you live in your home, and the way you market and sell your house are two different things.”
WHY SHOULD I STAGE MY HOME?
Home staging is a valuable tool that helps improve the perceived value of your home. A home that is professionally staged will most likely sell more quickly than an unstaged home.
HOW MUCH DOES HOME STAGING COST?
The price of home staging varies depending upon whether your home is vacant or occupied. Also affecting the price are the size of the home and the number of rooms to be staged, as well as other factors. The least expensive service is to hire us for a consultation. If your home will be occupied while on the market. We’ll walk through the house with you and explain in detail everything we feel need to be done to get your home sold quickly and for the most money.

WHO PAYS FOR HOME STAGING?
In most cases, the real estate agent pays for the initial consultation and the homeowner pays for additional hands-on home staging. The homeowner is responsible for getting the home in top selling condition and keeping it that way as long as it’s on the market. The real estate agent is responsible for marketing the home, listing it on the MLS, arranging for showings and open houses, and completing all the paperwork for the sale, etc.
