Hi Paul, I had to let you know what an outstanding job your team did with today’s staging. I am a pretty picky person, I like things done right…your team did it right. Both my wife and I were very impressed and excited with the results. I also appreciate the quick, efficient response to my request and top level service received from everyone. Kudos to all.

Occupied Home Staging
Thinking of moving? Selling your house can be a long and daunting task — and the term “staging” may seem scary — but taking this valuable step will not only help to highlight the best features of your house, but will also help to cover some of the weaker aspects. Putting in the work now can pay off big in the long run! According to RESA (Real Estate Staging Association), professionally staging your home before you put it on the market can up the sales price by 6% – 20%! That means even in a $100,000 home it’s at least an increase of $6,000!
Less Time and More Money
Not only will a staged home help to bring you more money in the house sale, but it could also mean that it sells quicker! Ninety-one percent (91%) of staged homes by a professional sell in one month or less. Not only does that mean you can move on from the home selling experience, but the home avoids sitting on the market and the price drops that come with it.
Staging Your Home to Sell
So what does home staging mean? The first step is obvious, but can be one of the longest and hardest — getting rid of that clutter! Getting rid of some of the personal mementos in your home can be hard, but our professional will come in and get rid of as much as HALF of the furnishings in your home. It’s important to remember, when you place your home up for sale, it’s no longer your home, but a house for sale — and a future home for someone else! That person, or family, needs to visualize themselves in this house, but people don’t live in houses with another families mementos around.
Once the clutter has left, it’s time to move onto furniture and decoration. If you’re planning on living in your house while it is on the market — rearranging, adding, or removing furniture can help make your home more inviting to prospective buyers. Or, if you plan on moving before the house is sold, having furniture in the house helps to make your home more appealing to far more potential buyers than an empty space. This is where a professional can really help! You may not have the extra money, or the desire, to buy new furniture, and a lot of time we have the furniture you need! In the living room, you want the space to feel warm and comfortable. As potential buyers move into the bedrooms, the space needs to be tranquil and relaxing — and by the time they make it to the bathroom, a spa like atmosphere will whisk them away!
And It Doesn’t Stop There
Finally, all of this hard work won’t be worth it if the house doesn’t stay clean! Before your house is scheduled to show, running the vacuum, cleaning the dishes, and a quick wipe down of your counters is important! Keeping up on chores is even more important — make sure you clean the bathrooms and kitchen, keep the bed made, and laundry baskets empty.
We Can Help
Phoenix Rising Home Staging can help you with cutting down the clutter, adding the right pieces from our extensive collection of furniture, and making your home appeal to the maximum amount of buyers possible.
When you hear of home staging people often think of someone coming in, moving furniture around, maybe adding or taking away a few decorations, and calling it a day! However, home staging is SO much more than that!
One of the many extras we offer at Phoenix Rising is consulting on additional finishes or paint colors that can enhance a home’s appearance. The paint color in your home is one low-cost, but very effective way, to showcase your home. When someone enters a house they’re thinking of purchasing, they want to feel comfortable! You may love the yellow paint in the living room, deep red paint in your bedroom, and the sky blue walls of your office – but that doesn’t mean that everyone has the same taste as you do…and you don’t want to exclude people, simply because of paint, when it comes to selling your house!
These bold colors distract a potential home buyer from having the ability to see themselves in the house. A potential buyer wants to walk in and feel at home! Keeping the paint on the wall neutral will help with that! The wall color becomes a non-issue and the potential buyer can focus on what’s really important!
Already have neutral color paint on your walls? That doesn’t mean you can now ignore them! A new coat of paint can also transform the room to make it feel cleaner and fresher!
Don’t ignore the outside spaces too! Fresh paint on the door, stain on your deck, or fences also make a house more appealing to a potential buyer!
Phoenix Rising Home Staging has interior designers on staff with more than 75 years of combined experience. We offer FREE CONSULTATIONS in your home to work with you and give you recommendations on what paint color or combination of colors would make your space most appealing to buyers.

I saw the pictures that my realtor sent me late Saturday. I was floored at how nice the unit looks. I think you guys did an excellent job of showing how the space can be utilized most efficiently and also gave it some personality. I absolutely know it was money well spent on my end.
Thank you very much for keeping on schedule and working with my realtor and I. I am very thankful that the unit looks the way it does today — it will show extremely well.
Tom already held an open house yesterday. The response was great!
Thank you again for everything. I think it was an excellent decision on my part to work with your group.
You have a very professional team and were right on target with my needs and budget. Please use me as a reference anytime.
