Is Home Staging a Waste? Agent Genius doesn’t think so!

Recently the owner of a Salem Oregon real estate company told a builder that home staging was a waste of time and would distract from his newly constructed home.

Hmmm . . . we’re glad the builder and his savvy agent disagreed!

Yesterday we staged this beautiful home and potential buyers can see how not only how their furniture will look, but are greeted with the image of the beautiful lifestyle this home inspires when they step into the home.

If you’ve ever walked into a vacant home, no matter how magnificent the construction, it’s hard to be inspired by the empty spaces.

So is home staging a strategy or just wishful thinking? This article from Agent Genius says it well: “When a buyer physically sees a staged home, they are given context for the home- they can tell the size of a room with scaled furniture, what a decorated home would look like and ultimately a staged home is putting its best foot forward.” This article features our pics and has quoted us too!  Check it out!

Have a home for sale?  Make sure it’s putting it’s best foot forward!  Professional home staging is usually more affordable than home sellers and real estate agents estimate!
