"Staging" Homes with Works of Art Gets Them Sold Faster
In a recent article on the front page of Yahoo it states that using expensive works of art helps in selling a home. "With around 100 paintings currently showcased in homes he represents in the Seattle area, Jan Sewell, a real estate agent in the northwestern city of Seattle, said an artist's creation 'helps to create an impression on a subliminal level, unconscious level ... making people fall in love with the house.'
"People think they want to be rational in buying a house. Nobody is," she added"
At HSR we are not surprised by this and have been teaching this form of home staging to our highly trained HSR Certified Home Stagers (Directory). We call it building "emotional connection points" or "emotional envy points" in each room of the house so that buyers build a strong desire to live there over the course of the walk through. This home marketing phenomena works miracles in the home selling industry and is a best kept secret of some of the most successful Realtors who partner with HSR Stagers.
