Staging for Builder’s Summit, NJ Home

Home Stager with Great Impressions Home Staging/Interiors

Open plan homes always benefit from keeping a cohesive color and style flow throughout the connected rooms -- especially when the rooms are on the smaller side -- as in this rebuilt home in Summit, NJ. Otherwise, the rooms can seem disjointed and choppy, or worse, look tacky if there are multiple color changes. Previously, this home was virtually staged in just 2 downstairs rooms, but buyers were disappointed when they came to see the home, which was vacant. Now with actual furniture in place, buyers see the seating, relaxation, and entertainment possibilities in this 4 bedroom, $1.25 million home. 

Staging with neutral colors tends to make any home look more modern and spacious, and allows buyers to focus on the features of the home -- floors, trim, cabinets, countertops, fireplace, etc. The cost of staging the 6 main rooms in this home -- living, dining, family, kitchen, dining room, and master bedroom, plus foyer and baths -- for 3 months, all-inclusive with staging fee, furniture and accessory rental, and delivery was less than $5500, more than 50% less than the industry average of 1% of list price.

 "Great Impressions Get Offers"

Presentation and price are critical to selling houses quickly. You and your agent figure out the best price; I make your home stand out from the competition to appeal to the most buyers, whether they are first-time buyers, move-up buyers, or down-sizing buyers. As an accredited, experienced staging professional, I know how to make your home grab buyers' attention -- on the MLS and in person. A beautifully presented house makes a great impression, stands out from the competition, and generates offers faster than a non-staged house!

Thanks, Thomas and Joan :) I'm betting it will sell soon, although we have to get out from under the snow first, including the next round coming tomorrow here in New Jersey!
