3. Staging

Before your home is listed…

Prior to the home going on the market, we will work with you to prepare it to give each prospective buyer an excellent impression. This is called staging and it may include painting, de-cluttering (do we sound like your mother???), lighting, furniture placement, and that sort of thing.

This is cool!

Here is what About.com says about staging- so well put:

“Home staging is about illusions. It’s how David Copperfieldwould sell a house. It’s beyond decorating and cleaning. It’s about perfecting the art of creating moods. Staging makes your house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, more loving and, best of all, it makes home buyers want to buy it.

Contrary to what you might think, it’s about more than preparing the house for sale. Staging is what you do after you’ve cleaned, decluttered, painted, made minor repairs; it’s all about dressing the house for sale.”

We enjoy this part…

…and you will too. We have a creative eye and we know what will make you home make that best first impression- how to make it’s strong points show.

Practical Hint:

Right now get an empty box, fill it with things off your kitchen counter that don’t need to be there and put the box in the garage. Now that was easy wasn’t it. Hopefully you didn’t hear your mother’s voice nagging you as you did this.

Then go in and enjoy your kitchen- and get a vision for selling your Champaign Urbana home soon!
