What Is Home Staging?
Home Staging is going beyond decorating and cleaning a home to put it on the market. It is the art of creating a mood that draws buyers to the space, and best of all, it makes them want to live there.
Through de-personalizing, neutralizing and merchandising, we will market your property to attract the largest possible audience of potential home buyers.
A consultation is the first step that is needed to bring your property the competitive advantage that it needs to set it apart from other comparable properties on the market. KT Interior designs will provide you with detailed recommendations and “prioritized action steps” to bring your home up to date.
After the consultation, you can decide whether you would like to use our expertise to stage your home and lift the burden off your shoulders. Remember, we can do as little or as much as you would like, depending on your budget and time frame.
Do you ask yourself questions like: “What can I do to sell this property faster and at the best possible price?”
Investing in home staging will cost you less than a future price reduction. When you stage your property, you do not have to verbally promote the best features. Instead, you make it easier for buyers to imagine themselves living in it; you increase your property’s appeal (and perceived value) and you have a competitive edge over the other properties in your area.
Professional stagers can “see what the buyer sees”. It’s a known fact that buying decisions are made very quickly. Professional stagers know how those decisions are made and create an environment that allows for a favorable decision to be made when buyers look at a property.
Professional stagers also have working relationships with industry partners like painters, carpet installs, wood floor refinishers, carpet cleaners, handymen, roof repair, etc. These relationships can benefit the property owner because stagers can pass along these savings. In addition, you will gain peace of mind knowing you are more likely to get quality service from people they work with on a regular basis.
