All of us know instinctively when positive energy is flowing around us in a space. If people comment on
how comfortable and pleasant it is to visit your home or feel the excellent results that occur after a meeting in your workplace, that is further indication that positive energy in flowing.
I believe those subtle feelings are about harmony. I know how to achieve these balances using colors, textures and furniture placement. A mirror near a window, a plant, and organic texture are simple examples of how simply “placement” can change the feel of a space from negative to positive. This is what staging is all about.
Think about these findings on homes that have been staged prior to going on the market. They’re impressive!
- In a controlled test, staged homes sold on average in half the time of unstaged homes.
-Real Estate Staging Association
- A staged home will sell, on average, for 17% more than an unstaged home.
-U.S. Department of Houses and Urban Development
- 80% of Staged houses were under contract in less than 40 days, averaging 24 days.*
-Staging Experts of Louisville 2013 Staging Statistics
* 129 days was the average time on the market for Louisville homes in 2013, according to the Local Board of Realtors
