Homeowners who haven’t listed their property in recent years may be surprised and somewhat skeptical of the advantages of styling or “staging” a home in order to maximize its resale price. However, it is a fact that detailing is very effective. When a professional designer is enlisted to optimize the appearance of a home, it leaves a positive impression on potential buyers. It’s not just about style. A proper consultation can identify means of emphasizing a home’s best assets, such as improving sightlines with strategic furnishing, or making a room more welcoming with improved lighting, a carpet, or an attractive piece of art. Whether it’s kitchen hardware replacement, new bathroom décor, or a fresh coat of paint, property staging is a worthwhile investment. It may require a bit of work, or may involve renting a few items, but it is sure to make a home more attractive to potential buyers.
