Occupied Staging Service

WHY STAGING YOUR PROPERTY BEFORE PLACING IT ON THE MARKET IS VITALITY IMPORTANT:

To promote interest in purchasing the property from as many of the buying public as possible! 


WHAT CHANGES MUST TAKE PLACE DURING THE STAGING PROCESS:


  • Emotional detachment to property by owner
  • Appreciate property as a commodity
  • Declutter and De-personalize
  • Open and welcoming furniture and accessories displays 
  • Showcase property amenities 


Once the decision has been made to place your home on the market, it is imperative that a new attitude of “detachment” be acquired by the owners. The “emotional” connection felt to this property needs to be set aside and appreciated for what it is now, a valuable commodity. The property’s architecture, location and lifestyle benefits should now be more in focus and all personal touches be toned down. While on the market it now belongs in a sense, to the buying public.

  

Staging in its simplest form is creating a warm and inviting atmosphere minus the personalization. A general rule of thumb is:  If you are emotionally attached to a specific object, it should be removed! The idea is to allow the buyer to image themselves living in this house with their things and emotions rather than yours!  


It is essential to define each space and arrange furniture and accessories in a warm and inviting manner. The traffic flow of the floor plan is always considered when creating these displays. It is also advisable to bring attention to the special features unique to the property. 


WHAT STAGE ONE SERVICES CAN DO FOR YOU:


Whether you plan to live in your house while its on the market or provide the furnishings for a vacant house, we can help.  Once the property is toured, we may tag certain pieces to be completely removed or transferred from one room to another. We may recommend repairs or special purchases be made to visually improve an area or display.
