.....So STAGE YOUR HOME WHEN YOU DECIDE TO SELL IT! Talk to Sweetgrass Home Staging about helping your home sell quickly!
.....Because home staging your home is one of the BEST ways to wow buyers and make the most money on the sale of your home!
Staging helps to focus on your home's strengths and appeal to the largest pool of buyers! Sweetgrass Home Staging has decor for $100K homes to million dollar homes!
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! And a vacant house will appear smaller than a furnished one.... home staging helps maximize the space!
TO THE RIGHT: This large master got an overhaul by staging it - California-style furnishings brighten the space!
REALTORS, THE HOME STAGING INDUSTRY WAS CREATED TO HELP YOUR INDUSTRY! Did you know that 25% of buyers contact a stager before hiring a realtor?
TO THE LEFT: Even a quaint space like this staged breakfast nook looks cozy. How about a board game at this cute bistro table or settling in with a book in this inviting chair?

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 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!"

"I started out very concerned about needing to sell our home while living out of state and the house being vacant! Kimber did an amazing staging job, taking care of everything, and making it a turn-key experience for us. The house looked spectacular, and we received amazing feedback from showings as well as a timely offer I am sure would not have happened without the staging provided by Sweetgrass!"
E Jones, seller
"I was immensely impressed with the staging of my house by Sweetgrass Home Staging. The furniture selected made the rooms seem larger and brighter, and Kimber was such a joy to work with. She was professional, concerned and caring. Excellent job, Kimber!"

Q. Who typically pays for home 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, it will take a minimum of 4 hours. Why not make a nominal investment, giving your house the best opportunity 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. In most instances, pictures of furniture used to stage a house can be viewed by the homeowner....AND furniture can be purchased with the sale of the house!
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. The goal is to make your house look amazing on the outside so that buyers will want to see the inside.
