6500 SF Vacant Staging

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What we did:  paint and stage.  We painted cabinets and over faux.  We fully staged, the entire home.

Why stage a 6500 SF vacant home or any home for that matter?

  • Many buyers can’t envision how a room might be used.  Staging gives purpose to each room.
  • Many buyers can’t envision how a room will look once furnished.  Staging shows them.
  • Many buyers will miss or not remember a home’s best features.  A staged home highlights each room’s focal point.
  • Many buyers can’t judge the size of an empty room.  A furnished room speaks volumes.
  • An empty room runs the risk of suggesting “unnecessary space”.
  • Current furniture, art and accessories can freshen the space.
  • A staged home communicates a multitude of other subtle messages.  Among them, it suggests a home that has been enjoyed, well cared for and well maintained.

Model homes are decorated for a reason.  The same principles apply to previously owned homes.

The best time to stage a vacant is before it is listed, before professional photographs are taken and before the Broker’s Open.

Look at the “before” and “after’s” from this recent vacant staging by Design Perspectives which illustrate each of these points.
