Vegas is All About Staging

By: Mark Hostetler

In a city that plays host to some of the biggest and most famous stages in the world the reality of home staging has hit home. This system of preparing a home for sale has done wonders for the resale home industry as people have gotten the idea that selling a home is akin to putting it on a stage for the entire world to see. This is especially true in a major market like Las Vegas where investors have been known to buy homes and properties over the phone sight unseen. For this reason it is vital that your home command attention and awe when it is listed and the pictures must do justice to the beauty that your home possesses.

In putting your home on a stage you will have to be attentive to the daily wear & tear of living. Nothing is more stressful then having buyers arrive just after you have finished eating dinner of doing laundry.

So the plan is to make sure that you home is spotless at all times and make sure that any showings are scheduled ahead of time. Now as with many sales you may have those people who simply show up with their agent and want to look at the home. In a situation like this the choice is yours but you should always let your realtor know that someone has arrived and is asking to look and the realtor that they are with.

Staging is about much more than simply cleaning and scrubbing down the home. It is about the total presentation of the home as a product. Every little aspect of the home must be attended to to create an environment that leaves buyers simply wanting to make an offer on your home. Strategic placement and even removal of furniture is a key element to home staging as the layout of furniture for show and for living can be drastically different. In fact it is a good idea to lean towards a minimalist feel. This kind of arrangement can serve to highlight the home as opposed to what is in it. After all people are not buying the furniture and art in the home so it's best if they can get a feel for the home itself with little getting in the way. This same principle should be applies to all areas of the home including closets and cupboards. Buyers will instinctively look through these areas to ensure that there is enough space for all their things so keeping them sparsely populated is a good idea.
