Article by Jeannene Edwards

As a professional Home Stager in Orlando, Florida, I see hundreds of homes each year and am acutely aware of what sells, and what does not! Through the art of effective home staging, I have learned that the increased perceived value of a home will also increase the selling price, and decrease the amount of time a home is on the market.

The following is a list of Five-Star Home Staging solutions, giving you an exclusive peek on ways to make your home staging take 'center stage' to successfully sell in a slower market:

Start With Curb Appeal - Create an unforgettable first impression that will prompt your buyer to want to cross the threshold. Having manicured landscaping, an impressive front door, and proper and up to date lighting are no longer considered to be optional, but are a necessity for todays savvy buyer. Many potential sales are made, or aborted from curbside!

Enchanting Entrance - Make it grand! Once across the threshold ,you have only 10 seconds to create the initial WOW factor response in your buyer . . . making them want to experience more of what your home has to offer! Create some excitement with the addition of an oversized mirror or dramatic piece of Art. And of course, fresh cut seasonal flowers and strategically placed lighting are always a nice way to greet your guests.

Refresh, Rearrange and Replace - Update worn attributes. Arrange the furniture so that the feel and flow of each room is warm and inviting. Clean or replace tired carpeting, upholstery and window treatments. Replace out-of-date light fixtures and hardware. Sand, refinish and buff hardwood floors, pressure wash stone, polish the silver . . . remember, company is coming and you want to present your home in 'showcase' condition!

Upgrade - For example, stainless Steel appliances add a commercial look of perceived value, along with a sense of brilliance and success to a home. Also, whenever possible, throw in a glass-front wine cooler for even more "sell appeal"!

Simply Sophisticated Five-Star Treatment - Give your bathrooms and bedrooms the 'luxury suite' attention that you only find in the finest hotels! Soft whisper colored walls, plush white towels, sheets, comforters and duvet covers, scented reeds and candles, a tray with a couple of good best selling books to curl up with . . . a spa robe casually draped over the arm of a lounge chair. . . remember, you're not only selling a home, but a five-star lifestyle!

Get Organized - Clear the deck and remove the clutter. Closets should both look good, and smell good! Rack or drawer your shoes and accessories, leaving nothing on the floor. Add cedar blocks for scent and invest in matching wooden hangars to project a successful lifestyle.

Be Soothingly Entertaining - Add a soundtrack of Soft Jazz to play in the background. Install a plasma TV tuned to an eye catching, replaying, high density disc of panoramic scenes. You want to present your home as modernized and updated.

Addition of Smoke and Mirrors - Accentuate and add the illusion of square footage by dramatically and strategically placing mirrors in small areas, using special effect lighting techniques, and incorporating and including the increasingly popular outdoor retreat areas in your overall design theme.

Home Staging is a dynamic, fast way to provide for your guests the "MAJOR WOW" factors needed to create an increased perception of brilliance, success and value . . . thus, setting the stage to bring your home to its finest potential, increase the sale price, and reduce the time your home is on the market!
