Our sellers receive a FREE staging consultation with a professional home stager. Here is why Staging Works:

  • A staged home typically sells faster than a non staged home.
  • A staged home creates a great first impression. Most buyers make up their mind within seconds of entering your home. Builders invest significant resources in staging model homes because staging works.
  • A staged home typically sells at a higher price than a non-staged home. Staging creates an emotional attachment to a home.
  • Staging your home broadens its appeal and attracts more potential buyers. More interest means more offers and a higher probability of multiple offers.
  • A staged home is shown by more Realtors. Because staged homes sell faster, Realtors prefer to show staged homes over vacant homes.
  • Home staging enhances the best features of a home.
