Let's talk about staging myths.
MYTH: I CAN STAGE MY OWN HOME.
In reality, it is very difficult for homeowners to look at their own house with an objective eye. Asking a professional stager to evaluate your home will allow you to gain valuable insight as to what buyers will be focusing on in your home: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
MYTH: DECORATING AND STAGING ARE NEARLY THE SAME THING.
This is a common misconception. Decorating and staging couldn't be more opposite from one another. Decorating infuses the homeowner's personal taste and style into the house. Staging involves taking one's personality out of the home to create a wider appeal to a broad range of buyers.
MYTH: STAGING IS MOSTLY FOR VACANT HOMES.
Most homes on the market will benefit from home staging, whether its a brand new vacant home or a lived-in home. While we do stage vacant homes, much of our work is focused on occupied homes. Why? Because occupied homes are generally not set up for optimal visual marketing.
