Dining Room Transformation-Home Staging in Centerville, Ohio

Home Stager with Debra's Designs Home Staging & Redesign

I decided I should take advantage of this blog and post some pictures...

This Dining Room didn't have much left in it.  It didn't take much to make it more inviting.  Just by changing the chairs and adding some accessories this room takes on a total transformation.  The homeowner had all of these things, just in other parts of the house.  Even if the items were not present, it would not cost much to create. 

I think that too many homeowners get scared at the thought to make their home "staged" it is going to cost them a fortune.  That is so not the case.  Maybe it is our friend HGTV that has done this.  We have all watched many episodes where they produce these marvelous re-dos that you are wondering..."where in the world did that budget come from?!?!  No way could I afford that!"  Admit it.  Sure, some of the shows do give you a budget breakdown but still those are TV dollars, if you know what I mean.  The products purchased in stores may be a reality but no where in my area could you get contractors as cheaply as they do.  It all just makes for good television viewing.  I love it and will continue to watch it myself. 

Back to the "real life" homeowners, yes you can afford it.  And yes, it is very easy if you talk to the right people.  Give me a call.  The concept of home staging is supposed to make selling your house less stressful and much quicker, and hopefully for more money.  You've seen all the statistics.  Staged houses sell anywhere from $5,000-$65,000 more, depending on the original price of the house.  In a study of realtors done in 2007, it was found that sellers who spent on average of $500 on staging recovered over 343% of the cost of staging in the sale of their home.  WOW!  I have known as "the Queen of Justification" in the past, but that beats anything I've ever come up with myself.

Don't keep your house in the same condition that you live in it.  By doing so you are helping the competition sell!  I don't know about you, but we all have some competitive spirit in us, lets sell first. 

Get your house "Dressed to Market"!

I have been reading "staging" posts because I live in a rural area where...gasp...there are no home stagers. It's clear to me how much of a difference it makes and I am trying to gain simple ideas that will help sellers polish their presentation. This room is transformed just by adding some color and filling in the empty spaces. God job!
