Home stager dedicated to helping sellers/investors/agents get homes sold faster by making them appeal to the greatest number of buyers in their market.
NJ and NY Home Staging Company (Great Impressions Home Stagi
Do you know how buyers see your home? Does your home compete favorably against all the other ones on the market? Do you want to get the most money possible out of your biggest investment? As an accredited (ASP) stager (check out stagedhomes.com) who also holds a real estate license, I know what today's buyers expect to see. I can transform your property into a showplace for the market that will likely sell for top dollar and quickly. The cost of a staging is ALWAYS less than the cost of your first price reduction if you don't bother to stage. Virtually every house -- furnished or unfurnished -- can benefit from staging to overcome buyer objections and make it look warm, inviting and spacious. Stagers know how to create environments that buyers are drawn to, impressed by, and remember!
Bergen County NJ Home Staging Services: room redesigns and redec
I can stage any size or style of house or apartment to fit its target demographic. Part of my service involves conducting the research to know what your market is and how your property needs to be presented to the public. I am an expert shopper who keeps up with the trends in home design and can generally work with your own furniture and belongings; my expertise is in knowing what needs to be stored elsewhere, how to de-personalize and neutralize spaces to appeal to the most buyers, how to pare down rooms to the desirable minimums to make them look more spacious but still inviting, how to rearrange furniture and accessories, and where and what to buy in terms of any new pieces your home may require to bring it up to buyers' standards. I have a large inventory (150 items and counting) of accessories to bring life and pizazz into your home to help it stand out from the crowd and make a lasting positive impression. Every home has drawbacks and positives; I know how to downplay the former and play up the l
atter to their full advantage.
Bergen County NJ Home Staging Testimonials
"Amy Bly of Great Impressions Home Staging knew how to decorate my home to SELL. No one else had told me to do the things she suggested. After 10 months on the market, the suggestions she made and beautiful accessories she had brought in brought me a buyer. Thanks, Amy!" Olga Ruglio, Fair Lawn, NJ
"I was reluctant at first to use a stager, because I thought she would tell us we had to rent or buy a lot of new furniture and accessories. I was pleasantly surprised when she instead showed us how to re-arrange and re-use what we had, moving things around and bringing in accessories from her own inventory. The investment we made in staging was very small compared to the return we got -- $10,000 above the listing price the agent had suggested." -- Maria Giampietro, River Vale, NJ
"The staged house now looks warm, elegant and inviting. I had no idea what a difference staging would make. Amy was a good choice -- she worked hard and achieved!" -- Vera Greenberg, V&N Realty, Teaneck, NJ
"Amy Bly was amazing at staging our home to sell; the results were unbelievable! Our house was de-cluttered and transformed into a beautiful showpiece. We attribute the wonderful results of selling our house to Amy!" -- Michelle and Bryan Misura, Midland Park, NJ
“Hiring Amy to stage our home was one of the smartest decisions we made during our home sale process. Amy was a delight to work with - down to earth, easy to speak with, accessible by phone and email, and well versed in current home decor trends. In today's real estate market, it's smart to do everything you can to highlight your home's strengths, and once we hired Amy, I knew we were showing our home in the best light possible. I came to trust Amy's opinion so much that I worked with her again to decorate our new house!” -- Laurie Berenson, Franklin Lakes, NJ
