The benefits of staging your home are plentiful. However, the process to stage your green home can be somewhat different from the staging of a traditional home. In order to show off your green home’s best features, it’s important to have an understanding of what that involves. Do you have recycling and composting systems? Are there air purifying and nontoxic cleaning products visible? With the sustainable features of your home displayed, polished up, and organized, buyers looking for green homes will be more than impressed.
Increasingly consumers are seeing Green as a way of saving money on energy usage while protecting the environment. That’s just a starting point for exploring sustainable communities, Green remodelling & staging, and quality of life. Though there is plenty of information on staging we have yet to find much on why you should stage your Green home. Your yards are equally as important. Take the time to make your outside space as Green as your inside space. Buyers visualize usability of the yard space as well as the interior of a home, and having the yard trimmed, free of debris, and appealing also goes a long way to getting the home sold!
