“Staging to Live”: Stage Before You Decide to Move

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With an upcoming move back east to be near family, this client engaged Design Perspectives to stage their Grapevine home to create “model home” appeal.

Simple improvements were made:  wood floors were extended into the primary living space and kitchen cabinets and walls were painted and freshened throughout.  The home was fully staged with supplemental rental furniture, art and accessories.

From my client:  “we got our asking price and a contract signed two days after putting it on the market, thanks to you.  I didn’t even want to move after you staged it.”

So many clients ask themselves, “why did I wait?  I could have been enjoying my space more while I was living in my home.”

You don’t need to wait.  Consider a new mindset:  “Staging to Live” versus “Staging to Sell”.
