In the intricate dance of selling a home, presentation is everything. Just like a well-composed symphony, staging a home requires a delicate balance of elements that harmonize to create a masterpiece.

Ashley Jeffery, Broker at Lake of Bays Realtors, had the privilege of sitting down with Stephanie Ott, owner and Lead Designer at Ott Interior Design to learn more about home staging. After having her own home staged for nearly 3 months in 2022, she has a clear list of do’s and don’ts from the home owners perspective.

“Staging isn’t about decorating; it’s about creating a lifestyle and atmosphere that potential buyers can envision themselves living in.” – Stephanie Ott

The benefits of staging are undeniable. According to Stephanie, “Staged homes typically sell faster and for a higher price than their unstaged counterparts. It’s an investment that yields significant returns.”

As our conversation drew to a close, Stephanie shared her final thoughts on the art of staging. “Staging is not just about making a house look pretty; it’s about telling a story. It’s about creating an emotional connection between the buyer and the home. When done right, staging has the power to transform a property into a dream home.”

In the symphony of real estate, staging takes center stage. With the guidance of professionals like Stephanie Ott, every home has the potential to dazzle and delight prospective buyers, leading to a harmonious finale: a successful sale.

If you would like to learn more about staging your home or have any other interior design questions, we highly recommend Stephanie of Ott Interior Design.
