Home staging, a method of presenting an Auburn home in its best light in order to appeal to the broadest audience base, has gained recognition through several popular cable television programs such as “Designed to Sell” and “Sell This House.” It can range from simply repainting walls to tearing them down, or from changing window treatments to replacing windows. It now offers many more varied services to the client, such as moving in and resettling, event staging, holiday decorating, de-cluttering and organizing and one-day re-design. Home staging has boosted Auburn home sales prices on many occassions, as well as quicken the amount of time the home stays on the market.
Getting references for home stagers and checking those references is essential. Auburn home owners should interview staging candidates and visit homes they staged.
The main benefit of hiring a professional to stage your home is that they will look at your surroundings with an experienced and objective eye. They won’t be attached to grandmother’s antique table, nor will they have the same affinity you may have for that yellow bathroom. They will be able to come in and tell you which items should be removed, what should be added and how best to feature your home.
Whether it’s a way to differentiate yourself in the Auburn marketplace or sales aid to give higher or faster offers, staging is a tool that all home sellers should add to their bag of tricks.
