Home Staging is a proven and effective sales technique that integrates decorating with marketing to create an experience for home buyers. It’s more than just furnishing a home – it’s the visual presentation of a property, clearly defining each space to sell a lifestyle. The process of Home Staging focuses on eliminating all potential distractions within your home to draw the focus to the best-selling features of your home, maximizing your property’s potential in the eyes of potential buyers. By removing distractions, potential buyers can focus on the home’s selling features. This can be as simple as reducing clutter and reorganizing spaces through furniture placement and accessorizing or a more involved process including the creation of a staging plan and the addition of furniture and accessories needed to execute the plan.
At Staged Up Colorado, Home Staging is about creating an emotional connection with potential buyers. Most of today’s buyers look for their next home online. Your property needs to not only capture their attention but capture their emotion! A staged home looks great in MLS photographs, allowing you to market your home to the largest audience possible. It is critical to differentiate yourself from the competition and connect with buyers on an emotional level, keeping that feeling going when they come to view the home in person. 
Specifically, Home Staging works to clearly define each space in the property which supports selling a lifestyle. If your home is filled with personal items, an excess of things, or certain colors, buyers are often distracted and fail to see the true potential of the space. Home Staging eliminates potential distractions and draws focus to the features of the property instead of the items within. By neutralizing colors, clearing out clutter, and creating proper flow, potential buyers can better visualize themselves living there. Not to be forgotten, a goal of Home Staging is to remove any limiting factor a potential buyer may find when they are considering whether to purchase your home.

An owner-occupied home is one in which the homeowners and/or their furnishings will remain in the property while it is for sale. A vacant home is one in which the property is fully vacant of furnishings and unoccupied. Want to know more? Give us a call!

We’re excited to work with you! When you’ve decided you’re ready to talk more about pricing and specifics on our staging services or accessory packages, we will get a quote to you within 48 hours. You may then decide if you wish to implement the recommendations yourself or employ us to assist with preparing your house for sale. Once the necessary recommendations have been completed, we will schedule a time to return to install the agreed upon staging packages and get your home ready for MLS/marketing photos.
You don’t need to prepare or declutter before the staging consultation. During the consultation, we will provide you with our recommendations for the areas that require decluttering and cleaning attention. If you have already started the decluttering process, be sure to set aside any non-personal decorative items that we may be able to work into your staging plan.
Most buyers today continue to look for a “move-in-ready” house. This does not necessarily mean that are looking for everything to be new or recently renovated or that they don’t want to make some changes to make the property their home. It means that they can see themselves moving into and living in the house without immediately having to work on it. Here are a few key points to consider: 
Curb Appeal: Care should also extend to the outside of your home. Create curb appeal through basic yard work and simple plantings to showcase the outdoor space and the property as a whole. 
First impressions: Ensure your house is clean, decluttered and if needed, freshly painted. A well-maintained property indicates to potential buyers there has been pride of ownership and that the property has been well cared for. Don’t forget any odors as well. If you are a pet owner or a smoker, a deep cleaning may be in order. It may surprise you, but any hint of pets or odor can be a warning sign for some buyers. 
Closets, cabinets and appliances: Once you have captured the buyer’s attention through your magnificent online photos, those same potential buyers will be coming to see your property in person. Remember, they will feel that they already know the space as they have toured your house online so, they will be looking in the places that they didn’t see in the photos. They will want to see in the closets, in the kitchen cabinets and drawers, and if the appliances are included, the condition of the appliances. Be sure that you have worked out a plan for storing items off-site. Buyers will want to look in your garage or your unfinished basement so make sure if you choose to store items there, the number of items is minimized and stored in an organized manner. 
Pets: We all love our pets, but potential buyers may not. Some buyers might not be pet friendly while others may suffer from allergies. When you are planning to list your house for sale, have a plan in place for your pets. You have already cleaned everything in your house but have you ensured that their things are out of site (i.e. food bowls, leashes, beds, toys)? Most importantly, have a plan to remove your pet from the home when showings begin. Pets can be a distraction during showings, and the process of having people in and out of the house can be stressful for our furry friends.
Did you know that only 10% of people can visualize what an empty space can look like furnished? This is just one of the reasons that Home Staging is so important in today’s real estate market. Staging a vacant home defines spaces for buyers. Each room of a house has a purpose and staging the space clearly identifies this for potential buyers. Staging also showcases the scale of spaces by showing functional furniture placement. Empty rooms actually tend to look smaller and can leave buyers questioning whether or not their own furniture will fit in each room. By setting up a room properly, buyers can they see that the furniture fits and provides them with ideal placement but helps to inspire them with the decorative touches included.
Our Home Staging plans serve to create a complete look and feel for your property. We use psychological staging to uptick the emotion quotient and turn your property into a true financial asset. If your property is occupied, and already furnished, we focus on using your existing furniture and accessories where possible, showing rooms as they were intended to be used. Where recommended, we will augment rooms with additional items to fully showcase their potential. Particularly with vacant properties, we understand that cost can be a limitation. In such situations, we work to provide an estimate for both a complete and a partial staging plan. Our standard staging package is called Heart of the Home and includes: the entry, a living and dining area, kitchen, master suite, and all main bathrooms - rooms that at a minimum should be staged. Additionally we offer a la carte living spaces as well as art and accessory packages.
For many people, their home is one of their biggest assets. Investing in Home Staging makes your greatest asset start working for you. Dollars spent on Home Staging go a long way to help ensure that you sell your home faster, and for more money. All statistics show that the investment in staging your home is always less than your first price reduction. Buyers are looking for a “move-in ready” home and will pay more to get this. Home Staging is about selling an emotional experience, not just a property.
