Staging a Home, is it necessary?This is going to be one hot topic. Here in San Francisco, staging is the norm and absolutely helps the home present in the freshest way possible. Stagers and their agents often go the extra mile and participate in color choice, will sometimes work with current furniture and accessories, replace lighting and hardware and can really use a critical eye to bring out the homes best attributes.I have used different stagers on different kinds of projects, ie...modern, victorian, condo, single family and get a different result and stage, depending upon whom I choose. Staging can cause a "buzz", an unknown quality that makes a buyer say, "I can see myself here"...which can add to the ability to ask for a higher asking price and may even command a higher final purchase price. If you would consider freshening, repairing your home for market, then staging is a natural final step to presenting a beautiful home to the buying public.
