Redesign Or Staging

Real Estate Agent with Sold It Realty Goup

As a Realtor, it's important to educate your client on staging. When the client's home is empty, we often purchase things to stage the home or hire a stager. Home Staging is about illusions and making the home seem lighter, bigger, etc. Why not take it a step further and talk to your client about a redesign. The term indicates something new and gets the seller in an excited state of mind. 

Redesign is using what your client already has in their home and updating it with some new accessories, rugs, throws, paint, and artwork. The idea is to give the existing space a whole new look using what your client already has. The results will be dramatic and will make your client excited.

Hi Coletta,  I actually don't think staging a home is about "illusions" at all. IMHO, it is about highlighting a property's features and minimizing it's challenges.  And, that can be done using the homeowner's own furnishings. Redesign on the other hand, denotes rearranging the homeowners' furnishings to achieve a different lifestyle.  I'll be looking forward to other's comments... thanks for the post.

Cloetta, your article is "short and sweet".  Way to go!  I look at the difference between staging and re-design has much to do with the owners budget whether limited or UN.
