Home Staging by Farah Abri
For many homeowners and real estate agents the concept of “professional home staging” is becoming more popular when promoting a home in the real estate marketplace. In past years, homeowners were left to their own discretion as far as preparing for home showings. Though they could occasionally rely on an agent for instructions, more often than not real estate agents were just as perplexed at working out the details as the homeowner.
While agents are experts in the field of selling and closing, many are not design savvy. Agents usually know exactly what factors can help sell a home. It’s just not always easy to get a home into selling condition in a timely manner without some sort of experienced assistance.
Professional home stagers are practiced in the art of preparing a home for resale. They work with the “flow” of a home, eliminate clutter, edit and arrange furniture, and even assist in enhancing curb-appeal. With the aid of a professional home stager, your house can make a notable first impression on potential homebuyers.
Agents stress that first impression are akey factor in selling your home. Typically,” says Farah Abri of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills, “a potential buyer’s first impression is critical in the first ten seconds of entering a home.
“To achieve the greatest possible outcome,” Farah adds, “a home should be showcased and presented at its best the first time around.”

How Much Does it Cost?
Request an estimate. Just like any service, pricing in the home staging industry can vary over a wide range. Some charge an hourly rate and some will charge you a set fee for the entire job. Be sure to ask as many questions as you need when you schedule a consultation.
It is possible to bring in rented furnishings, driving the sales price up considerably.
