Unless you are doing some type of staging, chances are you are leaving money on the table! A staged home sells 2.5 times faster and for up to 20% more than a non-staged house! At the very least, get a consultation to see how you can WOW the most buyers and get the most for your house!
Staging is arranging each room or space to give it the utmost appeal to the most buyers! ~ Which helps homeowners sell their property more quickly and for more money!
To THE LEFT: Help your investment property stand out by staging it! This room now looks like a finished product. Now buyers can see a vision and function for the space!
Any home that competes with new homes needs to look as good as a new home. Even if your home is furnished, it doesn't mean that your furniture placement is the most visually appealing. And by all means, please don't put a vacant home on the market - most buyers have little imagination when it comes to furniture placement. Staging allows buyer to SEE what their future home could look like!
TO THE RIGHT: Sometimes we use furniture and accessories the seller already has...we changed the bedspread and added a few decorations to make this Charleston home look fresher.

Sweetgrass Home Staging did a fantastic job on both of my homes! One was 8 years ago and we had so many people coming through with incredible comments, it was awesome!
Now that we are having to move again and Kimber has it all started, I want to stay! I look around and can't believe this is my house! Again, lots of appts to come see the house and great comments. It will, no doubt, sell quickly!
THANK YOU KIMBER, THANK YOU SWEETGRASS HOME STAGING!!
"The home was very well set up and the design fit the home and neighborhood perfectly. It had a 'beachy, but sophisticated' feel that really appealed to the buyers for that area (Charleston) and price point. They could truly envision seeing themselves in the home. It had just the right amount of furnishings that made it look clean and livable, and not cluttered. The color scheme was inviting and exciting! The overall energy of the home was just what a prospective buyer wants to see in a house. Great job!"

An easy and efficient way to de-clutter is to tackle ONE ROOM AT A TIME. You can use a few boxes to stow items you want to donate and garbage bags for things you want to discard. Working on one room at a time is less daunting and will be easier to see your progress when you're finished.
Q. Who typically pays for staging?
A. Although it is more common for homeowners to pay, sometimes realtors will pay for this vital service. Sometimes homeowners and realtors will split the cost.
Q. How long does it take to stage a house?
A. With Sweetgrass Home Staging, LLC, it will take a minimum of 2 hours. Why not make a nomimal investment, giving your house the best opporutunity to sell quickly and for more money?
Q. Will you use my furniture or does a company provide that? Will I be able to view any furniture before it is put into my house?
A. Depending on the situation, most homeowners have the necessary furnishings in their home. However, there are instances where fresh furniture is required. This is provided by a furniture rental company or by Sweetgrass. If a client insists, the furniture can be viewed by them in person. AND furniture used to stage a house can be purchased if the buyers or sellers like it!
Q. Do you do anything regarding curb appeal?
A. In short, yes. Most home exteriors just need some sprucing up. If the yard/exterior is in need of a major 'redo,' a professional landscaper/contractor may be warranted. Unless the house has been neglected, this is usually not the case. You want your house to look amazing on the outside so that buyers will want to see the inside.
