First impressions make a significant impact on a buyer's decision-making process!
Once your home goes on the market, it becomes a product. Home Styling or Staging simply allows you to highlight the best of your home and de-emphasize its flaws. It's not about decorating, but actually turning your home into a model, to appeal to the broadest range of prospective buyers. The goal is to make people feel like they could live there, and the best way to do this is to "neutralize" the surroundings.
BEFORE STAGING: Empty rooms don't always help sell a house. Although a furniture-free room looks spacious, some buyers would think this room is stark and austere.
AFTER STAGING: Decorative details like an area rug and some furnishings can help make a room warm, welcoming and stylish.
