1. AMAZING LISTING PICTURES
What are Buyers reviewing from the comfort of their home…listing pictures.
What are they using to decide if a house will fit their needs…listing pictures.
Times have changed with the popularity of HGTV and Real Estate websites. Buyers expect more. They expect pictures of houses that are clean and decluttered, but even more, they want to see houses in tip-top shape that are neutral and styled, so they can imagine themselves living there.
In addition, only a small percentage of Buyers can actually visualize what they don’t see. Staging suggests how one might use a room and gives the Buyer an overall idea of what furniture fits. You want listing pictures that clarify, not keep the Buyers guessing.

2. BENEFITS TO SELL
The psychology fo selling tells us that Buyers most often make decisions based on emotional connections. People buy a home because they “fall in love” with it.
The placement of furniture and accessories through home staging draws people into the rooms and directs their eye to the best features of the home. The staging vignettes set up in specific rooms take the Buyer a step further. An updated kitchen is a great feature, but staging helps the Buyer imagine cooking a fabulous meal or entertaining friends in the updated kitchen…BENEFITS TO SELL.
3. ADDED VALUE
Besides the value of helping get your house SOLD, staging increases perceived value for both potential Buyers and Appraisers. When compared to non-staged homes, staged homes are more likely to receive full-price offers, and some even above asking price…ADDED VALUE.
