BEHIND THE STAGE
Did you know that 78% of staged homes sell faster than un-staged homes? They also sell for 17% MORE than unstaged homes. Staging has become an essential element to the successful marketing of your home. Over 95% of buyers start their search for a home online and will gravitate towards the homes that shine online.
In the spirit of efficiency our real estate office is also our staging warehouse, With the help of our stylists, our Sellers get the opportunity to shop the inventory and pair what we have to enhance their homes appearance to prospective Buyers.
Some clients are excited to stage their home, while others dread it. While we believe home staging to be a key element of our listing packages, it is not a requirement and we are dedicated to meeting at your comfort level with this. Some clients even choose to go with a partial stage.
Our listing package also includes an on trend light fixture and home prep baskets, filled with essentials and showing tips to keep your house shining while it's on the market.
You’ll basically have your very own HGTV moment.
