Hello From The FurnitureGuy

Home Staging is marketing your home to potential buyers in a way they can imagine your home as their home. Only 10% of home buyers can actually visualize the potential of a home and typically decide if they are attracted to a home within 8-10 seconds.

The way we live in our home and market it for sale are very different. Who of us hasn't seen an episode of HGTV's House Hunters where a potential buyer can't get past a red focal wall in the living room and says, "No, I just can't see us here", its all marketing and visual appeal.

A professional home stager recommends colors, minor repairs, de-cluttering, furniture placement, art/accessories and organization needs which would best fit your home's space and showcases its features.

Exit Stage Right and your personal stager, the FurnitureGuy, not only bring the creativity, visual appeal and certified training, I bring options. Our professional services are tiered to accommodate all of our clients needs and budgets, at all levels. You might have one or many needs with your home sale and move, we would like to be your single point of contact for those needs.

When possible, we use the homes existing furnishings and accessories you already own to create the desired look. That can be a great cost-saving factor in the sale/appeal of your home. For vacant properties, we bring in the necessary furnishings and accessories to help your home outshine the competition. Like we said, it's Marketing which is the key word here.

At Exit Stage Right, we set the stage to make your home inviting and appealing to potential buyers. We create an atmosphere where clients can visualize themselves living in your home.

The process begins by de-cluttering and packing away unnecessary items to create a blank canvas. We then use your existing furnishings and accessories to create a new look. Exit Stage Right and the FurnitureGuy also can help by organizing your home and areas to better appeal to the potential buyer, a key factor in today's home sales arena.

First impressions are crucial when a potential buyer drives by your home. Many realtors will give their clients a list of addresses prior to making an appointment with the homeowner. If the home looks unsightly, often the client will continue on to the next listing. So your homes curb appeal is vital to warrant a possible sale.

Give your home that curb appeal to outshine the others on the block. Exit Stage Right and the FurnitureGuy looks at your home from a buyers view and he can suggest changes to make your home welcoming and inviting at an affordable cost. Allow us to take you on a tour of several before and after projects. Its always nice to get a visual for the seller too, it greatly helps promote the concept of staging.

See for yourself what a difference a small change will make and give that potential buyer an everlasting impression.
