Home staging is the act of preparing a home for sale in the real estate marketplace. Typically, home staging specifically refers to rearranging or renting furniture and decor to showcase the property in its best light. Highlighting harmonious traffic flow, architectural focal points and the illusion of maximum space. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for money.
Home Staging is one of the most exciting and effective marketing tools available to sell a home. However, some sellers may not be aware of staging and how effective it can be. It’s often a realtors job to show homeowners how the home is worth a small investment in staging when they go on the market. When staging is a part of your marketing plan, it reduces time on the market and maximizes profit. Don’t leave money on the table, dress your house for success!
Home staging increases the perceived value of the home
Selling your property in today’s tough real-estate market requires a lot of hard work and dedication. With the tough competition from thousands of other property sellers, you have to find a way to stand out from the competition. Anything that will give you an edge over the competition should be a plus to you when you are trying to sell your home. Staging gives you that edge!
Leaving your home “as is” actually helps sell the competition
Every home is unique and requires individual evaluation. Prices start from $150 for a consultation and up.

The cost/investment of staging will always be cheaper than your first price reduction
Staged properties will sell faster when compared with houses that have not been staged. From the date of listing, until the day of closing, home staging shortens this time frame, even in a slow real estate market.
STAGING IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE
Staging services can be considered an advertising fee (See IRS Publication 523) and these selling expenses include commissions, advertising fees*, legal fees and loan charges paid by the seller.
*Staging a home for re-sale is considered an Advertising fee. There are no time limits on the Advertising Fees related to the sale for the IRS. However, it is important to note that if a property does not sell and is taken off the market; expenses for that transaction are NOT deductible in the future. Check with your accountant for full details.
