So, what exactly IS home staging?
Perhaps it’s easiest to start with what home staging ISN’T.
Staging ISN’T decorating.
Decorating is PERSONALIZING. Staging is DEPERSONALIZING.
What is home staging?
When we stage a home, we apply specific strategies to position a property in a way that buyers can visualize themselves living there. We maximize the home’s positive features while minimizing any potential negatives. Sometimes this means we bring in our own supply of neutral décor, but often we can utilize our sellers’ existing furnishings to achieve the same effect. See the difference home staging makes with before and after photos from Kansas City area homes.
Have you ever walked into a new house on the Parade of Homes tour? Did you start envisioning what it would feel like to live there? That’s EXACTLY the experience we strive to create for buyers when they walk through the door of our listed properties.
As Accredited Staging Professionals, we believe passionately in the power of home staging. Our motivation is simple: to seller our clients’ homes in the shortest amount of time for the highest possible price with the least amount of stress.
