What are staging items?

Depersonalizing and neutralizing decoration is key to organizing a house. These items are ideal for adding a warm and elegant look to your home. In a nutshell, staging means setting up the house for a potential buyer or setting the stage, if you will. It involves redecorating, rearranging furniture, cleaning and other aesthetic strategies to present the home in the best possible light.

The goal is to make the home as attractive as possible to the most potential buyers. Home Staging is organizing furniture and decoration with the intention of displaying a house for sale. It might cost you nothing, sometimes all you need is a simple cleaning and disposal of everyday items. But it can also involve some financial investment, such as painting, improving the landscape, and adding furniture and plants to give potential buyers an idea of what their new home would look like.

Fruit is a common but timeless staging element that works well in kitchens and dining rooms. Fruit bowls add elements of color and freshness. Choose fruits such as lemons, green apples, or oranges that stay fresh much longer than fruits that ripen quickly, such as bananas or pears. This may involve taking some photos and measurements to create the furniture plan for staging a property.

One of the benefits of home assistants is that they often have their own supplies, such as furniture, carpets, and artwork, reducing the time and money spent searching for neutral items. Often, participants have a large inventory of furniture, decor, artwork, and other items that they can take advantage of to help make their home look better. Quite a few websites offer staging courses at home, but Stageados Homes is the only one that trains accredited staging professionals. Most professional home hobbyists argue that most people will have to spend little or no money on additional furniture and accessories.

The National Association of Realtors found that 83% of buyers consider the master bedroom an important room to stage. Home Stagers offer a variety of services with different rate structures for occupied and vacant properties. Your real estate agent could help you organize the house (some agents are also ASP) or recommend a representative for you. Stager Christine Spitale with Sunflower Staging likes to have bowls, trays, plates, small hot tub details and unique wall mirrors for staging.

After all this purge, you might be left with empty walls, so many home buffs will find cheap art on the outside—it can be as simple as picking up leaves and enclosing them in simple frames. A home stager allows owners and investors to make decisions for the highest return on investment (ROI) through a Home Staging Consultation. A small fee may or may not be charged for this service, as it is generally a 15-20 minute service to draw up a proposal to prepare the property. Some home participants bring their own home improvements, others use only what is available from the landlord.

So where do you start? Should you hire someone to organize your house for you, or can you do it yourself? If you want to hire someone, where do you look? If you do it yourself, what do you need to know? Do manufactured homes really sell faster and for more money? We'll answer all of those questions as we explore how home staging works.
