Los Gatos StagingAre you thinking about staging your Silicon Valley home? Are you hesitant about the cost of staging?  Well, you are not alone.   We are seeing tear-down fixer uppers being staged in Los Gatos, Saratoga these days.

Part of the reason is that most home owners have a difficult time envisioning how they might utilize the “empty spaces” in a home.  So, why not consider staging to increase the price of your home.  But before you allocate funds for staging, here are some reasons to consider:

Condition:   If your Silicon Valley home’s interior shows poorly, then it might be worth the cost and effort to stage your home.   After all the 1st impressions are going to influence the buyer and you might not get a 2nd chance to make a good impression.

Clutter:    You should at least remove clutter and avoid over-personalization of the home with tons of photographs and personal art.

Cost:  You will need $1,000-3,000 per month on staging cost depending on the size of your home.   So make sure you choose your staging partner wisely whose taste in decoration matches your homes style and floor plan.

Home Size:  How big is your home ?  Is your home 2500 square feet or larger?  The more space you have to stage the more impact it will have on the buyers.   In contrast if you have a small condo, you might get away with small but very stylish furniture and some colorful accents.

So, if you have answered yes to any of these questions, then you might seriously consider staging your home.  Feel free to Contact Us if you need some referrals to staging companies who cover Los Gatos, Saratoga, Los Altos, Campbell and San Jose.
