The Best Dressed House

 Staging and interior decorating

-Lorrie Card

A properly staged house will showcase the positive features and de-emphasize the negative. A well-staged home beautifully and appropriately highlights all of the available square footage in its space. When executed correctly, a properly staged house captivates house hunters, creates emotional connections with property seekers and motivates them to make an offer. 

​The sale of your residential home is perhaps the largest personal business transaction you will ever make. You owe it to yourself and your bank book to make the transaction as profitable as possible. Even if you choose to ignore obvious problems and tolerate a poor presentation of your property, buyers will not.

​Allow me to share my expertise with you and to decorate, arrange, and enhance the overall presentation of your home. Successfully staged homes can bring in 7 to 10% more than an un-staged home. Therefore, all of the effort put into executing appropriate enhancements will translate into dollars received at closing. 

House hunters are becoming more frugal with their money and more demanding in their purchases. At all price points, buyers want to get the very best their money can buy. A house that is “full of possibilities” or “needs a lot of imagination” becomes synonymous with a “fixer upper.” This usually results in a decrease to the asking price, if the house hunters remain interested at all. 

Homeowners,

​The best time to stage your home is before it is placed on the market. The next best time to stage your home is RIGHT NOW! Purging, painting, re-arranging, packing, donating goods, and preparing for a move are time consuming tasks. However, unless your house is sold, it is never too late to benefit from staging.
