What is Staging?

Staging your home refers to preparing your property to be shown on the real estate market. Because not all sellers take the time to stage their home, you’ll be at an advantage long before potential home buyers even step foot in your home, if you take the appropriate steps. Staging your home benefits you only as much as the effort you put into it. When done correctly, staging your home can significantly increase sale prices and decrease the amount of time spent on the market. The more preparation you do, the better your property will look, and the better chance you have to sell quickly and at top dollar.

Home Staging & Presentation Tips

The first, arguably the most important tip about staging your home, is to detach yourself from the property. View your home as if it’s your first time walking in it, and make decisions that would best suit a larger audience of potential buyers. Steer clear of trying to appeal to one kind of prospective buyer, and instead stage your home in a way that would appeal to all. 

You will want to consider the amount of time, effort, and money put into staging. It can get out of hand quickly, depending on the property, so be sure to allocate a strict budget and time commitment to your efforts. Stay away from major reconstructive changes, and instead focus on cosmetic upgrades. A fresh coat of paint and landscaping can go a long way.

With a keen eye for interior design and aesthetics, be sure to focus on the key elements of your home, highlighting its most attractive features. Highlight the best features of your home and hide its flaws. Declutter any messy or busy rooms, and utilize spaces to show off storage. You may also want to consider emotional staging by creating a mood that would appeal to those looking for a home in the area (take for instance a warm ambiance that suits the cabin lifestyle that’s so popular in Asheville, North Carolina area). Pay extra attention to the front entrance, the living room, kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms, as these rooms are often ones that home buyers spend the most time in.
