DID YOU KNOW THAT A STAGED HOME SELLS UP TO 80% FASTER THAN AN UNSTAGED HOME? - RESA (Real Estate Staging Association)
.....DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE MORE LIKELY TO RECEIVE A LOW BALL OFFER WHEN YOUR HOME IS VACANT?
HOME STAGING IS A MARKETING TOOL THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BE UTILIZING TO GET THE HIGHEST PRICE AND QUICKEST SALE FOR THEIR HOME!
When a home is staged, it helps the buyer make an emotional connection to your home, which often leads to an offer!! Give your home the best chance of selling quickly by staging it!
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!
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?

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, Irmo, SC 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.
T Gaither, Irmo, SC seller
Thanks so much, Kimber! I can't wait to make the changes that you suggested and all along I was dreading it. You've given me a whole new positive way of looking at things. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Adding a touch of seasonal decor is appropriate and welcomed when your home is on the market....just don't forget to change the decor with the seasons so you don't have a fall wreath displayed at Christmas!
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.
