Home staging is the art of decorating a home to sell fast and for top dollar. It works by highlighting the home’s best features and creating an atmosphere that buyers make an emotional connection with, so they can visualize themselves living there. Each year statistics come out that talk about things like staged homes sell 78% faster and for up to 20% more. Of course, this all depends on how well you or the realtor markets the home and if it is priced competitively to start with. Home staging is all about the buyer! Home staging also works to market your vacation rental or other rental properties.
Just about every call I get starts with how much does it cost, and how does it work? This video is for you!
To learn more about all your home staging options and the investment in each, see my blog article, Home Staging- how it Works and What it Costs.

Virtual Home Staging and Remodeling
I always recommend in person staging over virtual staging so buyers can make an emotional connection and envision themselves living there. Sometimes though, a space may need a lot of remodeling or updates and the seller chooses to leave that to the buyer so they can do it their way. Or the seller can not afford in person staging.
