Home Staging is Un- Decorating
So you think you don't need staging. You don't see the need. Your house is perfect just the way it is.
I'm sure your house IS beautiful; it is also likely decorated to resonate your own personal style, interests and collections. And that's as it should be.
We love our homes, and we decorate them lovingly, choosing important furniture and accessories over the course of our lives. Our homes say so much about us.
Homes are very personal and reflect our own style and they are not going to appeal to everyone. For instance, your pets, books and dolls make you happy. I know that my house is not going to feel like home to everyone. Nothing creeps me out more than a doll collection. Many people collect dolls, but I can't feel at home in a house full of tiny plastic faces.
Personal preferences keep us from seeing the real house.
A good stager can come into your home and neutralize your personality enough so that potential buyers aren't focusing on your personal collections. Instead the buyer can see what they like about the property, NOT what they don't like.
We want all potential buyers to be able to visualize themselves living in your home.
A staged house is neutral enough to appeal to a wide variety of people. Home Staging is un-decorating. And IT WORKS.
