Frequently Asked Questions


What does a home stager/designer do? 

A home stager is a design professional who assists a realtor and/or homeowner in identifying a home’s strengths and accentuating them. The stager will offer advice and recommend services to enhance the marketability of the home.

 

Does home staging really work?

Several studies show that home staging helps homes sell faster and for more money than non-staged homes.


How do I know if I need home staging?

Every home can benefit from home staging to increase its appeal to buyers.  Even beautifully decorated and organized homes can benefit from it because what makes a home appealing while it's on the market is different from what makes it appealing while someone is living in it.  Empty homes benefit from it too because staging helps buyers visualize how to set up their furniture and understand the size and function of each room better. 

 

How much does home staging cost? 

Home staging can fit any budget.  While some investment is required, remember it will come back to you when the home sells faster and for top dollar.  We offer a variety of services varying from light staging to full-service staging.

 

Do I have to stage an entire home? 

No, but consider the overall image that will be presented to potential buyers.  Remember that any obvious contrasts between staged areas and non-staged areas may highlight negative aspects of the home.

 

What rooms should I focus on staging? 

Experts agree that main living areas sell a home. We recommend focusing on all living areas and the master bedroom. Additionally, you should address any room that the future homeowner may find challenging to furnish.
