You Only Have One Chance to Make a First Impression! The Value of Staging When Selling your Home.


In order to get the highest purchase price when selling a home, a buyer's first impression must be a memorable one. Staging not only helps showcase your home's best characteristics but is also used to make it more appealing to the largest number of potential buyers so that they can envision the home as their own.

When a prospective client walks into a professionally staged home or condo that is on the market, there is an uncontested appeal that strums a harmonious chord of acceptance and comfortability upon seeing the unit. The buyer views the home through the eyes of a design professional, and their gut reaction is more powerful than walking into the same space sans furniture and design touches.


Walking into an empty home can be daunting to the imagination of a prospective buyer. They usually do not have the experience or insight to know how to utilize the existing space best. It's crucial that the staging accent the existing space and does not dominate to the point that the unit feels cluttered. Staging should accentuate the attributes of the home and offer creative insight to the prospective client as to how to furnish the space after they've purchased the home.

There is a direct correlation between the sale price of staged and vacant properties. According to the National Association of Realtors in a survey of over 4200 homes, 85% of the staged homes sold for 6-25% more than unstaged homes!*

In this hot market, a well-staged home will ensure that your property sells quickly and for top dollar!



At K+D Homes, we preview your property and review what changes or repairs are needed to maximize its value. Not every home requires a drastic makeover, but almost all properties will benefit from some decluttering and decorative tweaks.
