Before & After – The Importance of Staging
By: Annie Cash
You love your home and all your stuff. You should, you live there. But what about when it’s time to move, and more importantly, sell? You want your home to appeal to buyers in a way that they could envision themselves living there.
The goal of staging is to make the home speak to everyone else, in a compelling and positive way. You don’t want your stuff distracting your buyers from the amazing features that will make your home sell.

Stacks of papers —> buyer’s think there’s not enough storage
Kitchen counters covered —> buyer’s think there’s not enough cabinets
Master closet filled to the brim —> buyer’s think the closet is too small
Bedrooms with too much furniture —> buyer’s think the room is cramped and too small
When your home is clean, clutter-free, and/or staged. you are telling potential buyers that you take good care of your home, while giving them a clean slate to imagine themselves living there.
81% of Realtors said staging helps buyers visualize the property as a future home, while 46% said it makes prospective buyers more willing to walk through a home they saw online.
