Calling All New York Home Stagers...

Does Your Block Look Like This?

Home staging, or real estate staging is said to be more of an art than a science. That said, ever since its beginnings in the 1970's, the home staging profession has been steadily gaining a larger recognition among not only real estate industry pro's, but the general homeowner populace at large. In response to growing demand for staging help and services in our current "buyers' market" for real estate, cityhammer.com has just added a category for Real Estate Stagers in New York.

There's a widely accepted maxim in residential real estate that a buyer decides whether or not they would buy a home within 8 to 10 seconds of walking in the door! If that is actually even close to being true, then home staging could make a huge difference in terms of getting you that great first impression.

Stagers will typically employ tactics as simple as depersonalizing a room (hiding family portraits and vacation souvenirs) to more advanced techniques involving lighting, more neutral paint colors and even renting furniture to fill out an empty room, thus "enlarging" it in the eyes of a prospective home buyer. If you live in a condo or co-op in Manhattan, hopefully you have a nice lobby to help with the concept of curb appeal. If you own a house on Long Island or in Westchester, a stager will help with the clutter in the front yard or tell you what kind of impression the house is making from the street.

What kind of companies will you find in the Real Estate Stagers section on cityhammer.com? You will see specialists like Savvy Staged Homes of Upstate New York, interior design firms like ReDesign Works of the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and even real estate brokers, who have gone the extra step and added a home staging education to their arsenal of services.

Whether you are selling a home or plan to in the near future, we recommend getting some estimates from home stagers, who can help you get closer to asking price and put your house in position to sell faster than other properties that haven't been optimized for a sale.
