The Benefits of Staging a Home For Sale

As real estate brokers with home staging certifications, we see firsthand the effect a well-staged home can have on the mind of a home buyer. If you are thinking about selling your home, we offer complimentary home staging services that might just make you fall in love with your home all over again!

Home Sellers Are Biased
• Staging one’s own home is like asking them to be objective about their children. Unless you have truly hated your home since you bought it, it will be difficult for you to let go of your own decorating style and the emotions that have been cultivated since living there.

You Will Learn!
• Have you ever looked at a home magazine or watched the DIY Network only to fantasize about being able to decorate the way they do? Now you can learn! Stagers work with you to properly display items in your home to bring out the best features possible. It might give you the chance to learn how you want to decorate your next space!

First Impressions Must Be the Best
• Buyers will only get one first impression of your home- make it the best! You get a good feeling when you walk into a home that has been properly staged. It isn’t fake, it isn’t dirty, and it allows potential buyers to develop their own sense of comfort and connection to the home.

Look Better than Other Homes
• When a home isn’t properly staged, buyers are only driven further from your listing and closer to your competition. Keep your buyers connected with your property!

Appears Move-In Ready
• Proper, neutral home décor allows buyers to visualize living there. They will imagine their own possessions in each room, and how their family will fit into the space. It will also lessen the impact of any maintenance issues that may arise during inspection, as they are already pleased with the home’s overall aesthetics.

Looks Well-Maintained
• Again, issues have the potential to arise in almost any inspection, and a home that appears to be well-maintained from the outside will help the buyer feel more comfortable with any “internal” work that may need to be done, rather than focusing on changing things like countertops or radical paint jobs.

Looks Better in Photos
• These days, homes are typically first viewed on the internet. Well-done staging allows for better quality photos and allows a potential buyer to fall in love with the home before viewing it in person.

It’s Free!
• We offer free staging services from a certified professional to all who sign with us. Our staging professional is experienced in making a home comfortable for anyone who views it.

Easy decorating ideas for your home

Let’s face it. There are two kinds of people in the world; those who have a natural ability for being creative and those who are seriously lacking in decorating skills. The good news is that it doesn’t matter which category you are in because there’s always something new to be learned. If you want to know how to add some new life to your home in Skagit County without spending a fortune, here is how to get started.


Lighten Up before-after-lamp

If you are tired of looking at a plain and simple lamp, consider adding some charm by simply buying tassel fabric at your local craft store and affixing it to the trim. This will create a designer look and, best of all, won’t cost you a fortune.




Create The Illusion Of A Larger SpaceFireplace-mirror

Did you know that mirrors can actually give the illusion of a larger room? Even if your home is small, you can open it up with a few strategically placed mirrors. Horizontal designs are some of the best and they can offer a look that turns a small room into an open and airy spot. Mirrors on top of a fireplace also add instant depth to any room.




A Little Paint Can Go Along Way before and after

If you have an old drawer set that’s simply gone out of style, add a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware. This will work brilliantly whether you are changing the decor or just need a more updated look. If you don’t know where to begin, we suggest searching in Pinterest, there are a “gazillion” ideas to please everyone.





Now that you know what’s trendy, but most importantly EASY in decorating your home, it’s time to get busy and start sprucing up your home. After all, it’s often those finishing touches that make a house into a loving home.
