The Importance of Staging

There are a million articles out there about the importance of staging a property to sell. So why am I writing about it? Reading about it is one thing. Seeing it in action is another.
 
Since I work with buyers and sellers, I see firsthand how much of an impact staging can make. I’ve had clients say “no” to a place because the colors of a wall or because the furniture looks like their grandmother’s. Buyers watch A LOT of HGTV and they have certain expectations these days. Staging a unit can help make a place shine.
 
A couple of years ago, I showed 2 units in the same building in Penn Quarter. The units were the exactly the same: same price, 2 levels, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, hardwood floors on the first floor, carpet on the second and they both had the same view. Unit #1 was brightly painted (oranges, greens and purples) with a lot of clutter. Unit #2 was painted in neutrals (tans and creams), was staged and de-cluttered. My clients bought unit #2.
 
My point: staging sells.
