WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DECORATING AND STAGING
WHEN SELLING YOUR OCEAN CITY MARYLAND HOME
Understanding the distinction between interior design or decoration and staging is important, so as not to hire the wrong person for the job. If you are looking to beautify your home for your own delectation – hire a professional interior designer. When you are selling your house, seek out a professional home stager with experience.
So, precisely what really is the difference between interior design vs. staging?
Home Decoration is making a space look pretty for the homeowner Vs. Home Staging is one of the most potent marketing implements when selling real estate – it is the merchandising of your most valuable asset, your house.
The designer must understand the property owner’s lifestyle, artistic likes, functional desires vs. Stager must understand the competitive real estate investment environment, research the marked buyer of that property, understand the psychographics of the target buyer, and surrounding area, and aesthetic aspirations of target buyers.
Design projects take weeks and months to completion vs. Staging can be done in a matter of a few weeks.
Design is about functionality for your particular lifestyle vs. Staging is about emphasizing the positive qualities of your property, while it is listed on the market.
Most of us have taken good care and consideration into making our properties an environment that demonstrates our exclusive identity and unique lifestyle. This can be decorating. But in relation to selling your home, decorating doesn’t work. Decorating allows visitors to see the “you” in your home. When preparing a home for sale, or maybe staging, it is important the potential buyers are able to envision “themselves” in the home.
