It’s not easy being objective about your own space. Life has a way of creating our design plan by default – when we are too close to anything, we cease to notice elements that might distract a prospective buyer.
According to a survey conducted by The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® of over 1,000 homes (62% Vacant, 38% occupied) across the Continental US and Canada in today’s market, home staging helped increase house sales by 83%. Selling houses with the help of a home stager has become an important way to make sure your home will stand out in this competitive housing market.
As an interior designer for the past ten years, you can imagine I’ve walked into a vast array of homes, in a variety of styles, and at various levels of design challenge. Yet the basic elements that make a home feel pulled together and inviting are the same. Certain design needs are universal if a space is to feel “right”, regardless of the style. As a home stager, I bring my years of experience as an interior designer and my psychology/marketing background together, making a unique skill set that will bring out the best in your home and maximize its appeal to a prospective buyer.
