What it is
If you want to sell your property quickly, for the highest possible price, you need to see it as a product—one that must be beautifully packaged and smartly marketed so as to appeal to the widest range of potential buyers. That’s what staging does. Staging has been proven to reduce the time a property stays on the market and to increase the likelihood of attracting offers above the asking price.
How it works
For a vacant property, staging brings in furniture and decorative accessories in order to help prospective buyers better imagine how they might live in the various rooms. In an owner-occupied home, the staging process focuses on clearing out clutter, giving the property a well-cared-for feeling with paint and minor repairs, and paring down furniture to show off a room’s best features and increase the sense of space.
Staging your property before it is photographed for listing is essential. In today’s digital world, 90 percent of buyers view properties online to select which ones they will visit. Staging will make yours stand out online and draw more prospective buyers to walk through.
How to get started
Owner occupied homes: The first step is to set up an in-home staging consultation. We will do a walk-through of your property with you, taking a close look both inside and out, and leave you with plenty of ideas as well as a comprehensive checklist of things that can be done to help the property show at its very best. At the end of the session, we’ll help you determine the next steps, which could involve making the necessary changes yourself, utilizing Truly Home’s hands-on staging services, or some combination of both. Home staging consultation: $350—up to 3 hours.
Vacant properties: We use a combination of rented furniture and items from our own inventory to set the scene and give potential buyers an inviting picture of what living in the home could look like. Start the process with a free phone consultation and then we’ll schedule a walk-through of the property. We’ll follow up with a staging proposal designed to fit your budget. Vacant property walk-through and proposal: Free.
