What is Home Staging?

Home Staging is the process of preparing a property for sale in order to appeal to the greatest amount of potential buyers. It may be as simple as rearranging what you already have or introducing quality rental furniture and accessories. Often it is a combination of both.

Aesthetic updates, repairs, furniture placement, lighting and traffic flow are addressed in order to reveal a “show home” look.

Staged homes encourage buyers to envision themselves living in the space while forming a necessary emotional connection to the property.

Staging your home before your listing goes on the market will help maximize the selling price.

Home Staging is changing the way real estate is being sold. Statistics show that staged properties sell on average for 7% more than un-staged properties and in about half the time.

We have some really great certified home stagers in Kingston. If you would like me to put you in touch with one please let me know.

Ideally, you would have a stager come in when you are thinking of selling (just a few weeks before you put your home on the market). This gives you plenty of time to get the simple things done that the home stager will suggest that will get your home sold faster and for more money.
