FAQ

Do I need my home staged if it’s already decorated?
Yes, unlike decorating, staging does not personalize a space – in fact it does just the opposite; staging depersonalizes. Staging makes a home feel updated, warm and inviting.

Why should I hire a professional stager
Objectivity is key when staging a home. All the nuances that you overlook after being in a home for a number of years won’t be overlooked by potential buyers. A home is very personal; therefore being objective is almost impossible when you have an emotional connection to the home.

Is staging expensive?
Staging is an investment that when done correctly will help your home sell faster – eliminating months of carrying costs and bringing top dollar for your home. When you consider the first price reduction (and possible subsequent reductions) compared to the cost of staging – you can’t afford not to stage. Statistics show that staged homes sell 60% faster and for more money. When staging an occupied home, a professional stager may be able to use what you already have, making staging even more cost effective.
