What is Home Staging?

What is Home Staging?

Home staging is an investment! It is the process of using the principals of space, color, and interior decorating to accentuate a home’s architectural features while depersonalizing the space. Staging makes it easier for the buyer to visualize living in the space and provides the seller top dollar returns.

An Accredited Home Staging Professional (ASP), such as Belinda Jacobson-Loehle, will identify focal points, the best traffic patterns, optimal lighting and coordinate the space using the furnishings and accessories you already have! It’s a “win-win” investment for everyone.

Home staging includes but is not limited to: Interior color and lighting coordination, identification of focal points and traffic flow, clutter reduction and organization, furniture and accessory rearrangement or removal, and prop additions.  Exteriorpaint color selection, landscape improvements, garage and storage organization, suggestions for driveway and sidewalk repair, and cosmetic upgrades.
