Staging…what does it mean and how do you do it?

When we go to visit a prospective seller and look around their home, we often use the word “staging.” Many buyers have no idea what that means. They understand de-clutter but what does staging mean to us, in real estate terms? In the words of our favorite stager, Lorelie Brown of Showhomes of Charleston:

“Staging has very little to do with de-cluttering and great furnishings. It is a professional service that aligns a buyer’s perspective with a visual sense of space, and generates an emotional connection with the home. Professional stagers are skilled in ensuring that these components bring about buyers’ experiences that generate offers, and help agents and buyers get things SOLD.”

That is why when you list with us, we provide a free staging consultation with Lorelie. After that, the choice is yours and yours alone. You can follow her advice or not. We can honestly say that doing what she suggests will get your home sold faster and at a better price. Don’t believe us? Call us to list your home, meet Lorelie and see for yourself.
