Why Stage Your Seattle Home For Sale | AlkiHomes.com

Staging Your Home

As the old saying goes: You never have a second chance to make a good first impression!

As an Accredited Staging Professional and admitted “Minimalist” I am passionate about staging and presentation for every home that I list.

Many studies have shown that properly presented and staged homes sell more quickly and for a higher price than unstaged homes.  Staging is not interior decorating, rather it is all about editing, neutralizing and accentuating the spaces so as to present the home in the very best possible light and create an emotional connection with buyers.

I will help create an individual staging plan for your home.  Staging can be done at different levels from completely staging a vacant home to working with the furniture that is already there and bringing in a few well chosen and properly scaled accents for a polished look.   De-cluttering and removing personal items is critical and allows buyers to mentally move into a home by  creating an inviting, neutral space that they can envision themselves living in.

Below are photo galleries of a sampling of homes that I have staged and sold. Click on each home to view the gallery.
