Taking “Kid Friendly” Up a Notch

Home Stager Shares Secret for Selling in North Texas


by Debra with Staging Matters

One of the things I advise my clients to do, that sometimes surprises them, is to invent a child or two.  Several times this summer I have been staging a home where the seller’s children are grown but the buyers will likely have children.   Creating a child’s room makes the home seem like a more natural fit for a younger family.  We are trying to make a sellers home “feel home” to a buyer.  Think about the emotional pull a child’s room can have. 
It is not necessary to go overboard. Start by adding bedding made for children.   Add a few props (book, stuffed animal, etc), name your invisible little friend and congratulate yourself.  It doesn’t matter if you invent a boy or a girl,  a toddler or a tween.  Keep the investment small, it is just an emotional connection, but it is an important and powerful connection.   You now have a stronger chance of attracting young families.  An added benefit is that the room just might make you smile.

Our Mission

To strategically fine tune the details of a property so that buyers are captivated and make the mental jump from being a buyer to being an owner.

To carefully weigh costs so that the seller does not spend any money that is unnecessary and only invests money when the purchase is likely to yield a high rate of return.

To reduce the stress level of our clients by making staging a fun and practical experience that motivates and moves them forward in successfully selling their homes.

To exceed our clients expectations and create some “magic”.
