“You only get one chance to make a first impression”. The origin of this age-old adage is debatable but the meaning is not. Research has shown that “lasting impressions often are reached within 30 seconds” so, whether you are going on a job interview, hosting an event meeting or meeting the in-laws for the first time, you want that first impression to be a positive one.
This is especially true when selling your home. Most sellers are so used to how their home looks that they cannot see it as the potential buyer does. Home staging makes the home “buyer-friendly”. It depersonalizes it and showcases the best features of the house so it flows well and buyers can picture themselves living there.
When putting your home up for sale, it becomes a product that needs to be prepped in a manner that will attract the widest range of potential buyers. It’s said that people tend to buy houses based on emotion. Stage your home to create an amazing first impression that the majority of clients will love and it will sell faster and for more money.

|Jennifer Griffin from Griffin Interiors states, “Good design is all about creating a space in which the client feels comfortable and enjoys spending time.”
A staged home is a place to create a passionate connection with the buyer and allows the buyers to envision themselves living in the house.

With the current rebound in the residential housing market, remaining competitive is extremely important. Sellers need all the advantages they can get and home staging is an affordable option to make sure you come out on the top.
