Chariot Home Staging is HSR Certified !

So, if you have decided to put your home on the market, then you are going to need to hire a professional stager to help you out. A house stager will help you prepare you home by cleaning and redecorating it so it looks its best.

The reason to stage your home is to invite more buyers to the home and build an atmosphere where they can imagine themselves living in the home. Staging shows people the best qualities and minimizes and flaws it may have.

Basically a good stager will be able to make the home depersonalized yet inviting. Thus, all personal items such as family photos are removed.

A fresh coat of paint in a neutral tone will also be applied to the walls. Then, accessories such as art pieces, carefully designed lighting, artistically arranged books, and the like are done.

As a final touch, scent is also subtly applied. Some will have something baking during the open house to evoke a homey feeling, while others would use products with citrus scent when the house was cleaned so it will smell fresh and clean when buyers come over.

Due to results showing that staged homes are more likely to sell at a higher price than initially intended, many people are considering if spending on home staging will be worth it. Fees can range from a few hundred dollars per hour to a thousand or more, based on the condition of the home, its size, the number of rooms to be staged.

When hiring a professional stager, go for one who has been in the business for quite some time. Aside from experience, a long time stager would also have his own inventory such as furniture, art, and other supplies so one would not need to shop for these anymore.

Make sure the stager you hire belongs to an accredited staging association, such as Home Staging Resource, (HSR).
