Staging your home for sale will earn you thousands more in the end. And at Lisa Potier Home Sales, we stage every home we sell for free, yes, at NO cost to you! We believe in staging so much, we will present your home in it's best light and foot the bill.

Once you’ve officially decided to sell your home, one of your first considerations should be “How can I present my home best in order to maximize its appeal?” Although some properties can sell themselves, the majority of homes marketed actually benefit from a little dressing up… what is commonly referred to as “staging”.

Staging your home is simply preparing your home for the marketplace with a designing look that features the best assets to impress buyers. It can be accomplished at many different levels… either with a professional stager or a minimalist DIY effort with some decluttering and touch ups. Lisa Potier Home Sales can help suggest which level of effort and expenditure will best complement your property’s chance on the market. Although some sellers find it counterintuitive that spending money can lead to higher profit, there is good reasoning behind the costs that can result in a better return for the investment.

Consider the benefits:
-A well staged home demonstrates creative ways to use extra rooms and showcases unique floor plans. It helps buyers see the full potential of the property.
-According to HomeAdvisor, staged homes sell faster than un-staged homes, spending between 33% and 50% less time on the market.
-A 2023 survey by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) indicated that 82% of agents representing buyers agreed that a staged home helped their clients envision themselves living there.
-Younger buyers tend to use the internet first in their home search. Having a home staged with a photo presence online greatly enhances their desire to see properties in person.
-A survey from the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP) showed that the average price reduction on a home was five to 20 times more than what the staging investment would have cost.

Remember, staging isn’t about physically placing furniture; it’s about creating an enticing environment that resonates with potential buyers. As always, consult with your real estate professional for advice on the best approaches to attain a welcoming space.
