Home Staging and Art for Real Estate Agents October 15, 2018

It is well known that staging can make a huge difference in the price of a home when it comes time to sell.   The right artwork is vital to staging correctly.  Art that is too big can make a room seem crowded, too religious or political and it can turn people off. When you stage a home the idea is to make the possible buyer feel at home, like they can picture themselves there. Landscapes tend to work best.

It is also a psychological fact that certain colours enhance certain moods for example blues are typically calming colours, while reds indicate excitement and passion.   So what could be better than a beautiful painting of the Pacific Ocean for the living room like “UBC Cliffs” and something like “Ashes to flowers” for the bedroom?   Artwork can also cue subconscious feelings or associations in your buyers that affect whether they are emotionally attracted to your home… or not. You want them to be able to picture themselves already living in the home.
