Ab!t Home Staging• Home Staging is the visual art of preparing a home to sell. It helps a potential buyer to visualize the space as if they could live in the home themselves.• First impressions are made within the first 30 seconds!• Statistics have shown that staged homes typically sell quicker & for closer to the asking price than non-staged homes.

How to increase the value of a home’s potential:• The process: First assessment, then de- cluttering, de-personalizing, room editing & space planning• Becoming Designs helps the homeowner by offering an analysis of the home through both a verbal & a written assessment as well as hands-on labor support to make the changes.• The end result should remove the personal elements but never the personality!• The goal is to take the focus off of personal belongings & directed to the architecture
Setting the Stage• Buying a home is partially psychological. The feeling and emotion that are evoked in a house will determine if a home owner can envision living there themselves.• Visual clutter is a distraction. If the furniture is not placed properly, the artwork is all hung too high, accessories have no common thread, then the feel of the house will not appeal & therefore the architecture will be overlooked!
When selling a car, we first clean it, remove trash and personal belongings and often even detail it. This is for the sale of an $8,000 used car so that we get the best value for it. Yet, when selling the biggest purchase of most people’s lives, little to no investment on improvements and upgrades are made. Why is this? The return of your investment with home staging is far less than your first markdown!
