If you follow our real estate blog, MiamiRealEstateCafe.com  you may have read other articles on staging and interior design.  Interior decorating is for a home that’s to be lived in.   It’s entirely another design concept to  “stage” a home in order to sell it.

Staging a home may well make it sell faster …   49%  quicker,  according to the National Association of Realtors.   Not only that, but staging your house  tends to bring a higher price tag (as much as 10% above the average list price in the MLS, according to N.A.R.)

The idea of staging is to make the house appear as  uncluttered as possible …  and make the spaces flow (for the visitor who is seeing it from an upright, rather than a seated perspective).   Staging is different from interior decorating  (which is for those residing …  sitting and staying for long periods of time) … Staging is done strictly for the visual appeal  and it’s meant to entice a buyer to wander through and imagine himself/or herself and his/or her belongings there.

Staging  pulls the buyer’s eye from one space to the next,   creating a visual that lures buyer’s attention from  room to room, without   lot of distraction .  The house is de-personalized in staging it,  and it’s  decorated using a simple concept that less is better …  using sporadic focal points and  color to create a sense of tranquility .

If you are looking to sell your house, we’d love to chat with you!   There are buyers … but not a lot of inventory… especially not in Miami.   Give us a call, anytime!  The Restivo Team at EWM Realtors …  305 793-1365  restivo.v@ewm.com
