Staging is More than Clean!

Staging is the process of creating buyer appeal for a faster sale.  Staging is not decorating because decorating is personal and staging is to appeal to a broader audience, called buyers.

Most of the articles on staging talk about cleaning and decluttering as being staging steps.  However, anybody can clean and declutter. A clean and decluttered home is the just the starting point for staging the home, just like a blank canvas is the starting point for an artist.  A clean decluttered home will allow the seller to get the most benefit from a home stager and be the least expensive way to obtain the staged look.  Professional cleaning, window washing, carpet cleaning, and moving excess furnishings to storage can all be done ahead of time and certainly before staging day. 

What you pay a professional stager is for a staging design plan for maximum emotional appeal to buyers. The actual moving and placement of the staging plan can be done by the seller, or together with the stager or the stager can do everything.       

Not everyone can arrange  room with an eye toward balance and perspective and include, art and decor and color and placement that appeals.  The techniques of art arrangement, lighting placement, and decor placement are not rocket science, but still requires an eye for arrangement of furnishings and decor in a design that appeals.   

Staging is part technique, part art, and part personality of the stager.  Like cooking, not everyone who eats is a great cook!   Then there are the practical matters.  Very few stagers are really into heavy furniture lifting and moving.  If the wall unit is in the way, then this requires another staging perspective and will affect the room arrangement.
