At "DESIGNED IMPRESSIONS" our goal is to get your house sold as quickly as possible and for the most amount of money. Home Staging is a relatively new service designed to help prepare your home to sell while maximizing its appeal to potential buyers. Part decorating, part marketing, part psychology, Staging highlights your home's best features while downplaying any weaknesses. At its core, Staging is about gaining a competative edge - an advantage over the other homes in your area that will make buyers prefer your house to the others available.

Homeowners can become blind to the wear and tear and the flaws of their house that can jump out to the prospective buyer. The objective eye of a professional stager can make all the difference. Staged homes show better than competing homes for sale and photos of staged homes look better in print and in internet listings. Staging professionals understand how to connect the buyer to the seller's property by engaging all 5 senses using what the seller already owns, limited funds and specialized selling techniques.


Real Estate agents need Stagers to help them sell their listings and homeowners need them to show their property off to its best advantage. National stastics indicate that staged homes sell two to three times faster than un-staged homes and net three to ten percent more.


Designed Impressions conducts an in-home consultation (1 to 3 hours) to determine what home staging solutions best suits your homes needs. You will received a personalized detailed "Home Evaluation Report" that includes room-by-room recommendations for improvements that will appeal to prospective buyers. You may then choose to implement the changes yourself or with hands-on help from us.
