Home Staging

According to a 2019 survey completed by NAR (National Association of Realtors) 83% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home. One-quarter of buyers’ agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered between one and five percent, compared to other similar homes on the market that were not staged.

One of the services that the Hovey | Ritchey Team offers all of our clients is home staging.

The Staging Process

  • Walkthrough of the house to create a punchlist of items that need to be updated and/or repaired.

  • Reorganizing. This is a vital component of our staging process. Many times a room can be completely transformed just by removing and rearranging.

  • Purchase of specific furnishings and accessories. Depending on the scale of the staging a mood board may be created like the one below.
