Staging a property is not as easy as 1, 2, 3 a lot of thought and time goes into preparing the best staging concept. From the initial visit to the home, to reviewing the photos, to preparing the best staging design. We have to see, live, and breath the space to determine what makes the most sense for the space. Our custom design needs to showcase the unique focal features and luxury amenities.
Each property is styled with its own proprietary design. Thus no two homes are ever alike!
As professionals our job is to study all the features and custom select accessories, colors, soft goods, and artwork that will enhance and showcase the home from its best side. The ultimate goal is to turn your property from a diamond in the rough, to an awe-inspiring jewel.
With the Internet, selecting the right Home Stager can be easy or a real headache… Do you go by style traditional, contemporary, transitional or do you base it solely on price? All good questions. A helpful tip would be to talk to your Realtor. Who have they worked with, what were the results, the buyers comments, and were they easy to work with? Review the Stager’s web-site, portfolio, and references, does their aesthetic stand out to you? Does it give you the “wow” factor?
Do you feel this Property Stylist will metamorphose your home into the award winning pack leader and help it stand out from the competition?
As a home seller you want to invest your money wisely, the right stylist can pleasantly surprise you, helping your house sell at a higher price than expected prior to staging.
Things to avoid would be to pick a stager solely based on financials. A poor web-site or even the absence of one, the lack of references, and photos should raise red flags. Is this stager truly a professional or just a dabbler? Will they understand what it takes to turn your home into a shining gem or will the house appear tired, dated, and cheap? Buyers form their first impression within the first seconds of setting foot on your property. Often times on a subconscious level if the property has been staged with stale, shopworn inventory, it can have a negative emotional effect on the potential buyer. Thus they might consider taking a bigger deduction when presenting their first offer. In cases like this the home is better of shown vacant, as the hackneyed decor will only have a negative intonation on its visitors.
In closing choose the right Property Stylist! Someone who will style your home with trendy furniture, luxury accessories, and a current color palette, giving the impression of being updated and inhabited by an owner who cares about his home and maintains it up to recent standards.
Yes sometimes they won’t be the cheapest on the block but if they provide you with the necessary luxury, chic, and sophisticated look and a quicker sale, it is all the matters. In the end everyday your property remains on the market you carry additional costs.
