About Staging
Buyers only know what they see...not the way it can be...

Staging gives you a distinct marketing advantage


  • Nationwide statistics show that 80% of potential home buyers turn to the internet to view listings before venturing out with a Agent to view perspective properties.

    Take a look at the sample photos on the right side of this page. I would bet money that you would pass by both homes in the "Before Staging" photos and would be captured by both homes in the "After Staging" photos.

    Can you believe they are the same room? They are! And you can believe that they sat on the market for a long time Before Staging with no offers. Once Coast Home Staging was engaged as part of the sales team, they both sold quickly.

Staging attracts a broader range of buyers!

  • The absence of furniture and accessories could allow the potential buyer to draw inaccurate conclusions on how a room may be used or how the furniture can be placed in a room to allow for traffic flow.

    Why give them the opportunity to make incorrect assumptions? Staging the property with furnishings will put these worries to rest. As Accredited Staging Professionals, we are trained to use "buyers eyes" creating a broad appeal. This technique allows a wide range of buyers to visually move in and bond with the property.

Staging keeps potential buyers out of the dark!

  • As Accredited Staging Professionals, we know how important lighting is to every room in the property. Table and/or floor lamps are used in every room, and left on for showing.

    The lighting in vacant properties is generally poor due to the fact that only ceiling lights remain, and in some cases ceiling lighting may not be available, leaving rooms completely dark.
