How much does it cost to stage a house?  What are the benefits of Home Staging?

Home staging means preparing the home for a potential buyer — or "setting the stage," if you will. It involves 2 parts.  Cleaning and other aesthetic improvements to present the home in the best possible light and THEN redecorating and furnishing.  The goal is to make the home as appealing as possible to the most potential buyers.

Benefits of Home Staging - Make your space attractive to more buyers!

Put away personal items and protect and pre-pack without a timeline!  When people look through the closet, you feel comfortable knowing you have pre-packed items you wish to keep safe. Pre-packing is also a very helpful step to reduce stress and anxiety regarding your selling timeline.  

Show off the function of your space! Many San Jose buyers are left- brained and not as visual as you may think!  Leave this to the professionals to show off your space! Staging can also detract from any imperfections and keeps buyers focused on emotion and being able to live in your home.

Does staging help sell a house?

Staging helps to make the home appealing to more of today’s buyers. In San Jose, we have a lot of busy tech workers, doctors and accountants buying homes. They work long hours so they want to buy a property that they can move right into without projects.  Staging grabs their emotions since staging makes your home look more like a model home.  Also it allows buyers to imagine their personal items in the house since staging neutralizes your property.

Is home staging worth it?

Do you want to show off your house in the best possible way?  Make your home look great on photos to get them to come and visit  and to make the initial impression great! 

Ask yourself who is your likely buyer? Do you want to take advantage of preparing BEFORE having buyers walk through your property? Is your furniture large or your space full? Bigger rooms (smaller furniture) give your home the perception of valuable space

Most importantly…. staged homes sell faster!!
