Murfreesboro TN Homes: Through the eyes of a home stager; a property transformation, no furniture rental required

Through the eyes of a home stager; a property transformation, no furniture rental required

I loved this example of what effective home staging can do for your home!  This room was literally transformed by Karen Otto, a very talented home stager in Plano TX.  This shows how staging can take a room that is already great and turn it into an absolute show stopper.  This was completed using the home owners OWN FURNISHINGS by using the power of the "swap" technique!  As a members of the Association of Staging Professionals AND a realtor, I can assure you that staging WILL help sell your home in a shorter amount of time with a higher net to you!

Today's client had completed some of the staging recommendations we had discussed during our 2 hour home staging consultation on Monday. In fact when he called to confirm further home staging services for his Mckinney, TX home with Home Star Staging he asked if I could reduce the rate based on the amount of work he did. From what he told me, I was able to estimate an hour less of time to complete our portion of it. I was very happy that he felt motivated and empowered to do some of the work prior to our staging appointment and he, as many home sellers are today, was on a budget.

Using almost 95% of the seller's own furnishings (no furniture rental required!), Home Star Staging offset those items with a few budget friendly accessories from our inventory. He kindly left us to our work today and when he came home he returned to a very different house!

After taking a tour of his newly transformed home he admitted that before I came he thought,

" I didn't know what else you could really do since I'd already done a lot."

With our team we actually did a lot MORE than he realized we could or would.  It was a classic furniture and decor swap from different rooms of the house. 

After seeing the transformation my client said,

"Now I know you know what you're doing and why staging is important!".

That just made my day!

I explained to him that I understood his feelings and I was grateful that he called us back.  During the staging consultation I try to provide every detail I can to help a client stage a home themselves if they choose however once we're onsite to complete the plan, staging can evolve and becomes an organic process, and often things will change from what was originally planned. The work he had done was great, but it was not staging.

Seeing a home through the eyes of a home stager is much different than someone who is not and even with recommendations to work from it often takes the skill and talent of a professional to do the job right.

As I was about to leave one final question came from my client, he wanted to know once he moved if we could come and do this at his new place...of course!!

Hi Sherri, thank you again for reblogging this post and your kind words of affirmation and support for staging. We are like stylists for any store front, product or magazine, stagers are marketing pros with an eye for design and while "dwelling" in a home I say do whatever you like but for selling we need to get the over all picture of how a buyer will see and use it. So for photos and in house showings it's sooo key to address the big picture and this was a home close to 1 mil, it needed to show that way!

You're welcome Karen!  This was one of the best examples of WHY staging works that I've seen!  Wish you were in Nashville/Murfreesboro!

I am just checking back here Sherri and wanted to say thank you again for your kind comment! I love to work with what the seller's already own - it's always amazing to them to see the transformation of their homes with their things through the eyes of a home stager!
