A House is not a Home by Barb Schwarz, the creator of Home Staging®
"Your home is not for sale, but your house is!
You've made the decision to sell your house! You will soon realize that now is the
time to prepare yourself to move into the marketing mode because you will soon be presenting your home to your market, the home Buyer.
Your home has become a product. It can be difficult to think of a home as a mere product, but it helps to do this in order to get top dollar and sell it in a reasonable amount of time. That product is your house. Your home will become the new residence you choose. How exciting! You want to sell that product. As with any product for sale, your house will have to be marketed. Before you can market it, you must determine how you will package it. You want to package your house so that it is attractive to customers (in this case, the home Buyer) because you want them to choose your house and not the competition.
To gain an edge in your marketplace, you must be priced right and look better
than the competition! The best, proven way to package your house and gain that
competitive edge is to STAGE IT!

How to Stage Your House?
This is an important question. Stagers use various approaches. One approach is HOMEOWNER HANDS ON. As an advisor, your ASP® home stager gives a consultation. It will outline what needs to be done. Under her supervision, the homeowners do all the work themselves. Another approach is the BLENDED STAGE. Here, the stager and her associates work with your home furnishings and accessories to achieve a more pleasing space. Additional items can be provided by the stager on a rental basis if needed. For vacant homes, model homes, any unoccupied space, a FULL STAGE is used. Here, the ASP® home stager provides staging services as well as the furnishings and accessories.
Fees for the ASP® home stager's bid or consultation are a one time investment. Adding furniture and accessories to a space incur a separate, repeating monthly investment.
Let our skill enhance your style!
Is your home Colonial, Italianate, Tudor, Queen Anne or Victorian? Could it be Craftsman, Bungalow, Modern, Northwest Contemporary, Rambler or Post-Modern? Is it a single family, free-standing house, in a multi-family low-rise or in an apartment building.? ASP home stagers use their knowledge of these building types & styles to coordinate and enhance your interior. Stagers are skilled at making the entire space flow from the front door to the back yard, with open, appealing and uncluttered rooms. This transformation will put your home above and beyond all the others that have not been staged. People shopping for homes via the internet will see truly superior photographs that portray a special, cared for and loved property!
