Myth: Staging Is Decorating Fact:
Staging is NOT Decorating or Design! Decorating or Design is personalizing;
Staging is de-personalizing and preparing a house for the prospective
Buyer. That is why it’s KEY that you hire professionals like
Elegant Home Transformations, who are trained specifically to prepare
a house for sale.
Myth: Staging Costs Too Much
Staging is an INVESTMENT in getting a house
sold and the investment in staging is always less than a price reduction.
A Stager has been trained to work within a Seller’s budget
and time frame to properly stage a house.
We like to ask our Clients,
“Can you afford not to stage?” When compared with the
other costs associated with the sale or purchase of a home, Staging
is very reasonable.
Myth: All I Need Are Lights,
Flowers & Music
Lights, flowers and music are great for showing
a house, but that is not the same as staging. Staging requires an
objective and professional assessment of a house’s strengths
and challenge areas, and solutions to help Buyers fall in love with
what they see.
Myth: I Can Just Watch One of
The shows on Design Network channels give
Sellers the idea that they need to do something to their house to
prepare it for sale, but Sellers cannot be truly objective in a
house where they have been living. They need a professional 3rd
party opinion to get it properly staged. Elegant Home Transformations
has the experience and skills to help
Sellers get their houses ready for sale.

I can’t afford a Home Stager — why
should I pay out money for this sort of service, when I need every
dime I can get out of the sale of our home?
Actually, if your home really needs a Stager, you
can’t afford NOT to hire one. In today’s real estate
market, Buyers need to see the potential of a property before they
will even consider making an offer. By staging your home you are
making it the ‘best it can be’ so that Buyers are more
likely to want it. You can not compare the result you receive for
the small amount of money you put out for staging, compared to the
overall value you receive on the bottom line. And, it most cases
it costs you less than your first ‘Price Reduction.’
Sometimes, it even comes down to whether or not the buyer will even
make an offer!
After “Location, Location, Location,” it’s all
about “Presentation, Presentation, Presentation.”
much will it cost?
That depends on a lot of things, including how willing and able
you are to do the work. We can give you the plan and you can implement
it or, we can do it for you. Naturally, this choice is relative
to the final cost of the job, depending on the amount of services
you require to accomplish the project. Larger projects could cost
more because of the size and scope. We are happy to give you an
estimate with our initial consultation and always strive to work
within your budget so that you get the most for your investment.

a little more. Maybe there is some dramatic aspect that you haven’t

that “Wow” factor into your home without making it too
overdone, working with your already good decorating plan. Again,
we would be happy to give you an estimate of the cost with our initial

element of your marketing strategy!
