Frequently Asked Questions

Home Staging is a great solution for homeowners and investors who want to sell their properties for top dollar. As so many of our clients come to us with questions about the process of home staging, we've collected the most common inquiries about the process and intended results of home staging for you to read.

DETAILS Home Staging provides services for realtors, home sellers, investors and mortgage companies. Our years of experience have shown that to achieve a successful outcome, all members of the home selling process must team together to meet expectations and timelines.
Staged homes stand out among the other homes in your area that are currently up for sale. Our creative staging services will help you competitively market your home so it will sell fast and for top dollar. We cannot guarantee that your house will sell after staging it; however, we can guarantee that staging will help set the scene throughout the house to create a greater level of buyer interest in your property, as well as help make it appeal to a broader market of potential buyers.
Buying a home is one of the largest investments a person will ever make. When people look to buy a home, they're also looking to buy a lifestyle. They want to envision their new lives within the walls of that house. When you stage your home, you define the space in essential ways, so buyers can connect with the property. Generally speaking, most potential buyers make a decision about a house during the first 30 seconds they're inside the property. That's why staging can make all the difference. Today's buyers are savvy and demand turnkey properties, which is all the more reason to present and market your home as being in move-in condition.
Home staging combines proven real estate sales techniques with the art of design, creating a flow throughout your house, enhancing its curb-appeal and providing buyers with a better presentation of your property. No matter how big or small your home, DETAILS Home Staging is ready to meet all of your home staging needs.
In most cases, staging, which may include the installation of furniture and accessories, can be completed within one to two days. Larger properties may take several days.
The investment of staging a home is generally a fraction of the cost of an average first price reduction. According to a study published by the Real Estate Staging Association, un-staged homes spent an average of 184 days on the market. After staging, these same homes sold on average in 41 days. Homes that were staged prior to going on the market sold on average in 23 days. Properties staged first spent 90% less time on the market. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has reported that on average, for every $1 spent on staging, sellers get back $4!
