The power of professional staging

From blah to beautiful, staging helps attract buyers so that your home sells quickly and for top dollar.

First impressions matter

Just like you form a first impression when meeting someone for the first time, home buyers form a first impression of the homes they are evaluating for purchase.  In today’s tech age, that first impression is often made online through photos of the home.  Indeed, the National Association of Realtors reports that 95% of buyers look at online photos before ever visiting a property.  

Staged homes photograph better, and better photographs mean you attract more potential buyers.

That's why we provide a free staging consult

Staging helps create a positive first impression to increase a buyer’s emotional connection to a home.  And because it is so valuable to have someone with “fresh eyes” provide guidance on making your home more attractive to buyers, we offer our clients a free two-hour consultation with a professional stager.  

Staging an occupied home

If you plan to live in your home during the sales process, a stager can help you figure out how to optimize the use, look and feel of every room so that it is the most appealing to potential buyers.  For example, stagers can help you determine if any furniture should be stored or re-arranged to showcase your home at its best.  Some stagers even offer hands-on services like helping you purge closets, declutter, and pack.

And let’s face it.  Not everyone shares the same taste or style in decorating. A stager offers a neutral perspective on what changes to make so that your home has mass appeal.  

Staging a vacant home

Staging is also important if your home will be vacant while it is on the market.  Empty rooms and drab walls are unlikely to catch the attention of a potential buyer who is scrolling through hundreds of home photos online.  Staging helps create an attention-getting photo that will encourage the buyer to pause and look more thoughtfully at the features of your home.

Plus, not everyone can imagine what an empty room would look like filled with furniture.  Staging bridges the gap for many buyers by helping them envision how spaces can be used.

See the difference

Consider, for example, this unique home with a view of Lake Travis.  The photos on the left show the home vacant, and the photos on the right show the home once it was staged by Mombo Interiors.  You be the judge.  Which picture drew you in the most – staged or unstaged?
