Can Home Staging Bring Out The X Factor?

Home Stager with Synergy Staging ~ specializing in vacant home staging

What is the The X Factor? Well aside from being another talent show transplanted from the UK, it is that extra special characteristic that sets an individual apart from others and makes them stand out.

The same appeal can sometimes be found in homes that are on the market. While every home has a unique personality and look, bringing out it’s best attributes so potential buyers fall in love is where home staging comes in. Nothing can be taken for granted when marketing what is typically a person’s largest investment. Hiring a professional home stager to ensure your home is presented as well as possible can be one of the most important steps in a successful sale.

Synergy Staging helped showcase this investment property so it would stand out from the many similar properties in the neighborhood with a consultation and staging.

The wall color was changed from white to a few complimentary earth tones throughout which immediately changed the feel of the house. The home was also staged to create an environment that showed potential buyers how they could live in the home and helped them connect to the space.

The combination of these steps truly brought out the X Factor in this property.

Here are few of the before and afters:

Wow David! You did a great job here - love your color choices; I'm sure the love for this property was evident from every potential buyer who had a chance to view and compare this property. You have the right attitude about home staging, i.e. "Nothing can be taken for granted when marketing what is typically a person’s largest investment".  All the best.

David - What a gorgeous stage.  This home not only has the X factor now, it also has the "it" factor!  Love the pops of red/orange.  This home definitely stands out, thanks to you!

X factor, it factor and everything else factor is suitable for this post. Your before and after pictures clearly demonstrate the value that home staging provides. Excellent staging, David.

Hi David--what a great post.  That home was beyond boring before you arrived.  I would say you brought out the "X" and the "Wow" factor.  Staging makes all the difference in the world to allow buyers to connect to a property.

Wendy ~ Thank you so much!

Janet ~ You are right that staging helps buyers connect to a property.

Shar ~ Not sure if Simon would care =) - but I know that buyers and sellers do!
