Home Staging for Homeowners
Sell faster and get a higher offer price
Whether your home is occupied, vacant, or somewhere in between, we recommend staging it before listing it. If your home has been on the market for some time without getting good offers, home staging and new listing photos can help bring in the right buyers almost immediately.
Home staging accentuates the positives of a home through furniture and accessory placement, color and theme coordination, and scenes designed to help buyers make an emotional connection to your home. Staging a home is different than decorating or living in it. Furnishings are positioned in key rooms to make MLS photos pop, get your home on the shortlist to visit, and provide a warm, memorable experience that helps buyers see themselves living in and enjoying your home.
Barbara worked with us to help us both live in and sell our home. Her suggestions for paring down and rearranging our furniture really opened up the space! When we were done, WE wanted to buy our house! Throughout the process, Barbara demonstrated both tact and sensitivity to the fact that it was our home. She was a pleasure to work with and helped our home sell in just a few weeks!

I couldn’t believe the transformation. After Barbara and her team staged our home, we wanted to move back in! We had offers come in quickly and had a contract a lot sooner than we expected.

Our empty house sat on the market for a year with very little activity. We took it off the market for about 6 months before listing it again. We chose a different agent who encouraged us to stage our home through Home Staging to Sell. My husband and I were somewhat hesitant and thought, "What does decorating have to do with selling a home?" and "People are buying our HOUSE, not our decorations!" However, we were willing to give it a try. We contacted Barbara and we fell in love with her right away. She was so warm and kind. She taught us the difference between staging and decorating, and why staging is so important to the sale of a house. It was incredible how different our house felt once she staged it! We were completely blown away when we received an offer on our home in just 10 days! We are so grateful for the wonderful work that Barbara and her team did. She is great at what she does and is a true pleasure to work with.
