For a quick sale of your home two things must be in place:

  1. price must meet the current market
  2. condition which allows buyers to see themselves in your home

Once making the decision to sell, Paulena will preview your home and research comparables in your area to determine your home’s price.

It is up to you to ensure the condition is ready for the market – home staging will get you there.

A professionally staged home will show the assets of a home to their very best advantage. It will emphasize the space, functionality, and features of a house so that prospective buyers only see the positive.

It’s about illusions and goes beyond decorating and cleaning. It’s about perfecting the art of creating moods by creating an environment that caters to many different individuals.

Home Staging makes a house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, and more loving which will contribute to how long the home will be on the market.

81% of buyers find it easier to visualize their future in the home when it is staged


A staged home creates a lifestyle that will appeal to prospective buyers; a neutral space that projects a feeling of welcome and warmth where it is easy for prospective buyers to imagine their lives being carried out in the home.

Think of it as “dressing a house” for a sale – home staging will de-emphasize any perceived negatives about a house to eliminate issues that could possibly stand in the way of a sale.
