Staging: Small Changes with Big Results

Staging: Small Changes with Big Results

Have you ever wondered, “Why Should I Stage My Property?”  You are not alone.  In my years as a professional Home Stager in St Paul,  I have met with  clients that were less than sold on the idea of homestaging, but went along with it because their Real Estate agent suggested that they do it.

When clients ask me the question; “Why Should I Stage My Property?”, I tell them to do it because some buyers are kind of lazy; if you make them work too hard, they will abandon you!

The bottom line is that many buyers do not have the patience or the skill to really appreciate a property that is not decorated well, or empty.  If they pull up a picture on the MLS of a property that looks  chaotic, dirty, dated or boring…they just move on to the next property.  CLICK!

I stage lots of vacant properties. Why? Because empty homes are not very interesting or informative to look at online.  Once they are staged, they are visually inviting and buyers can better understand the size of the room when they see it with furniture in it.

Take a look at these before and after photos to see what I mean.

Here is the same living room from a different angle. 

I bet you would never have guessed that the room was this large when you looked at the picture of it empty.  If your home is not showing well in pictures, consider having it staged.  Staging is remarkably affordable, and can be done in a matter of days.  If you live in the Twin Cities metro area I encourage you to give me call at 651.587.5887 to discuss your project or contact me by email
