Complimentary Home Staging

"Team McGinnis gave us access to an array of professional contractors who helped us get the house in perfect shape. Then, Erin came in and worked her magic to stage the house. We felt very proud of our house as it hit the market." --Dan and Debi Keen, sellers

Home staged by Team McGinnis

Home staging helps sellers get the highest possible price in any market.

We give it to you at no additional cost.

How do we do this? Staging typically requires sellers to invest between $500 and $5,000. But our clients are in a unique position because Erin McGinnis, in addition to being a Realtor, is an accredited home stager and she stages all of our listings at no additional cost to our clients! This ranges from consultations to the full staging of a vacant house.


BEFORE AND AFTER: This house had been a rental property and it was empty when the seller hired us. We added the right furnishings to create a cheerful and complete space that buyers can connect to -- both online and in person. The home sold in 10 days!

We know that home staging is critical to the successful sale of houses, so a several years ago we made a business decision that would ensure that all of our clients’ homes are staged: we would include staging as part of our service.

What is home staging?

Home staging is the act of preparing and showcasing a house for sale. Professional home stagers apply their knowledge of real estate, home renovations and creative design to attract a buyer.

Preparing a property involves all or part of cleaning, de-cluttering, updating and repairing, while showcasing is the process of arranging furniture, accessories, art and light.

It’s true that buying a home involves lots of numbers, but even so, it’s largely an emotional process. Before someone will buy a home, they must connect to it emotionally. Erin uses the right furnishings and accessories to create impressive spaces that show off the home’s potential and capture a buyer’s interest.

Staged home by Team McGinnis

This is a living room we staged in an occupied home. We removed some furniture, rearranged what was left and staged the room with a mix of our furnishings and the seller’s furnishings.

The seller, Bill Boyd, said this about our service:  "In a few hours, my home was transformed from a single-male abode to an uncluttered, attractive and appealing family home. I am convinced that the expert staging was the predominant factor in the quick sale of my home."

Benefits of staging

  • Professionally staged homes present and show better than competing houses for sale, including new construction homes and higher-priced houses.
  • Staged properties will sell faster when compared with houses that have not been staged. From the date of listing until the day of closing, home staging shortens this time frame, even in a slow real estate market.
  • Staged properties look the very best in MLS photos, and more than 90% of home buyers begin their search online.
  • Staged properties can increase the number of offers and selling price in hot markets.
  • Buyers view professionally staged listings as “well-maintained.’
  • Buyers’ agents recognize that professionally staged listings are “move-in” ready and are inclined to show staged properties.
