Home staging is the act of preparing and temporarily designing a property with the intent to sell in today’s marketplace. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want to buy. It is also a process of depersonalizing the property—allowing potential buyers to envision themselves living in this home. The goal is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money.
When it comes to staging a home for resale, who should be more trusted than a professional Interior Designer? With a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from Purdue University and as a real estate broker who regularly represents buyers, I have a clear understanding of what a home needs in order to appeal to the broad market.
Depending on your property’s distinct needs, staging can begin with a sweep through the property to open the home and declutter. It can be as extensive as painting or re-arranging and even temporarily renting furniture and accessories to properly prepare for the market.
