Boise Walker is the owner of Ezio Design Solutions (a home staging and interior design company) and she is providing insight into the home staging business…

What is home staging? 

  • It’s the process of visually transforming a home for sale in the real estate marketplace.
  • The goal of staging is to make a house appealing to the highest number of prospective buyers, potentially selling a property quickly with a return on investment.
  • Staging a house can make rooms appear larger, brighter, more open and functional.
  • Home stagers are keen on accentuating decorative features within a house (i.e. fireplaces, hardwood floors, built-in cabinetry, etc…)
  • Virtual staging (the art of altering photos to reveal decorative enhancements) can also bring a vacant property to life with digitally enhanced décor options.
  • Staging recommendations can include paint updates, furniture arrangements, decluttering, lighting upgrades, deep cleaning tips, etc…

Benefits for the real estate professional!

  • Home stagers can work directly with the homeowner to ensure recommended updates have been implemented (removing tasks off the realtors plate)
  • Creating opportunities for multiple interested buyers; which can result in bidding wars that increase the sale price (and yes, staged houses open up the opportunity for multiple interested buyers).
  • Stagers help with the online presentation and create picture ready properties’
  • Home staging recommendations highlight the best features of the home therefore appealing to the target audience (who are motivated buyers).
