Home staging is part of preparing your home for an Open House. Staging focuses on your home's presentation to buyers and buyers' agents while showing off the features of your home with thoughtfully placed furnishings and decorations so that your home seems more spacious and buyers can picture their lives in your home.

Curb appeal is your best chance to make a positive impact on buyers from a street perspective. The positive and negative features that jump out at buyers shape their initial opinion of your house and how you upkeep home's regular maintenance.Knowing this assists us in deciding what measures we can take to invite buyers from the street and into your house. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with refreshed paint and bright greenery it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and add dollars to your home's final selling price.
Can buyers envision themselves lounging in your living space, reading a good book in your reading nook or studying in your home office? I want your Open House to welcome buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you achieve this by suggesting small improvements that highlight your house's features.
I'll suggest that you get rid of pieces that give the illusion of clutter. Tabletops should be cleared off. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and refrigerator artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to "neutralize" the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, rugs needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively affect the sale.
Buyers' agents know that their clients want to see a house that draws them in with charm. Everything that could be too personal should be put away so that your house will have likability while on the market.
Setting the Stage
I'll tell you when to show your home, because all of the changes come together to create a picture of what buyers can look forward to after they choose to buy your house.
Brightening up each room is of major importance, so we'll do things like open curtains and create light where needed to invite the buyer inside. Together we'll enhance the mood of the house with enjoyable music playing lightly and ensure a pleasing scent flows throughout your home. We'll incorporate cozy-looking throws, and throw pillows on your couch and bed. We want buyers to feel like your home is their future home.
