Smart Staging: Selling a Home with Compass

High Impact Staging Tips

20 December 2016
Prepping a home for sale is unlike anything else you’ve ever put on the market. It’s not as easy as doing the Karate Kid wax job on a car, or tuning an old guitar.
In essence, you are creating a setting for people to imagine how they’d live their lives. Research has even shown that a well-staged home can potentially increase sales value and decrease time on the market. Compass understands this, and works closely with Sellers to advise on how to prep, stage and market homes in the best possible way. This includes using the finest of today’s smart home technology.
Compass offers a Smart Staging package that starts at the front door, with secure, app-enabled keyless entry that lets prospective buyers enter and view your home at convenient times. Compass installed Netgear Arlo security cameras and Lutron Wi-Fi motion detecting lights keep watch on the property at all times, providing added peace of mind to sellers.
Once through the doors, potential buyers are treated to a svelte and sophisticated living experience. Flat screen HDTVs with Sonos surround sound systems tantalize the audio and visual senses, while visitors indulge in a hot cup o’ java, from the Compass-installed Nespresso machine in the kitchen with cream and sugar on the side.
We also install a state of the art Alexa system so that most home controls can be remotely operated. This includes the security cameras, locks, lighting, thermostats, landscaping sprinklers and more. Alexa not only keeps the home in a comfortable viewing state, but always gives the impression of someone being home.
