To THE LEFT: Help your investment property stand out by staging it! This room now looks like a finished product. With staging, buyers can see a future party for family or friends in this expansive dining room!
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....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 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 office looks cozy and how about those two windows as your backdrop? There's artwork already in the room!
The owner has more than a decade of experience staging homes, and she prefers staging vacant ones. "I can stage any property, but prefer staging vacant homes, because you start with a clean slate."

Using a stager helps you turn listings more quickly and beautiful listings are a reflection on you! - AND - THE AVERAGE COST OF STAGING IS LESS THAN A PRICE REDUCTION! No one wins with a price reduction. Get MORE with staging!!
ABOVE: Don't forget about curb appeal - a porch with accessories adds interest and dimension.
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 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 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. The goal is to make your house look amazing on the outside so that buyers will want to see the inside.
