Best Home Staging Inside Secrets Part I


Give Your Home For Sale A Designer Look!

Numerous homes are currently on the market nationwide.  Everyday potential buyers are previewing properties listed for sale on the internet and viewing hundreds of homes looking for the one that really “wows” them.  Is your home standing out in the sea of competition?  Here are some of our Inside Secrets to Virtual Staging and Home Staging that will transform your house into a luxurious designer looking home that will make potential buyers fall in love with…

Staging Secret #1 – The ideal amount of space between a mirror and the top of the fireplace mantel is about 7″.

Staging Secret #2 – A bed should be about 23″ off the floor at least.  That means a boxspring and matress on a bed frame not on cynder blocks or on the floor!

Staging Secret #3 – Never push furniture up flat against the wall by pulling your seat arrangement in just a few inches – create good traffic flow always when home staging

Staging Secret #4 – Decorative folding screens can change a room.  Place behind a bed for a headborad, use to fill an awkward corner or give some designation between an open living dining room space.

Staging Secret #5 – Don’t let the same fabric in one room of the home be in another room, match matchy is not allowed.  You don’t want it to make a room look too decorator-y.

Staging Secret #6 – Sisal rugs in a natural color are the best ways to make a room look crisp and clean – neutralizing is key in home staging.

Staging Secret #7 – A fabulous art collection may not be in the budget, hang a framed cutting of a colorful piece of fabric, illustration from a book or wallpaper.

What Our Clients Say

“We received 2 offers in less than a week and a half.  The property was listed with vacant photos for over 220 days on the market with no offers.  Many buyers passed on the house but after posting the virtual photos, they changed their minds and we definitely saw an increase in buyer traffic!”


TRISH BRADLEY, Agent | Rutledge Properties – Massachusettes

“Our vacant property was listed for sale with no offers for over 90 days and after virtual staging of the photos took place, we instantly saw an increase in buyer traffic and got an offer in less than 4 weeks.  The buyers liked the photos which helped them with decorating ideas for the home.”


JEANNIE THOMPSON, Agent | Long & Foster – Virginia

“Virtually Staging Properties offers a phenomenal service!  I have listings that have little to no furnishings and need to be brought to life and VSP does just that.  My clients love the product and my virtual photos get wonderful internet exposure.  I have sold every virtually staged home by VSP faster and will recommend the service to my Realtor colleagues.  Thank You!!”


IRINA BABB, Realtor | Re/Max Allegiance – Virginia

“Your virtual staging product is sensational! The efficiency condo I had listed was in a community of 60+ units for sale and had no offers.  After posting the 3 virtually staged photos of my unit, I got an offer within 5 days and beat out all the competing units listed in the same price range.  Thanks for a great job!”


SUE MILLER, Realtor | Re/Max of Naperville – Illinois

“The unfurnished townhome we had listed had been on the market for 4 months until we decided to engage in virtual staging.  I had the townhome professionally photographed and then had the photos virtually staged and they were so realistic.  We had a binding contract within 2 weeks after posting the virtual photos!”
