St Cloud Home Sellers Get Unlikely Staging Input

St Cloud Home Sellers Get Unlikely Staging Input

It’s fair to say that Walmart—the iconic American superstore—isn’t the first place most St. Cloud area home sellers are likely to think of when it comes to staging their property. After all, Walmart is most famous for “everyday low prices” (advertising code for ‘cheap!’). That’s quite a contrast with your house—the most costly purchase most people ever make.

So it was something of a head-turner when realtor.com, web home of the National Association of Realtors®, published an informative piece under the heading, “5 Home Staging Essentials You Can Find at Walmart.” Especially when you think about staging million-dollar St. Cloud estates, the Walmart connection seems like a stretch—much less a “home staging essential.”

That headline does make for some irresistible reading, though—and although St. Cloud staging professionals might debate some of the “essentials,” the list is worth quoting:

  • Fluffy white hand towels. No argument—as long as the fluffiness is (as described) “soft.”

  •  Round accent mirrors. They can be “a stylish accent” as described—but that depends on the quality of the frame (the one pictured fits the bill).

  • Fake green plants. Not a bad idea for corners where the real thing wouldn’t thrive. The examples pictured shows “the greenery” in nice-looking vases.

  • Flameless candles. In many settings, this could be debatable. Because they attract attention, such “safe LED candles” risk unnecessarily communicating “fake” more tellingly than do the tasteful vase-borne artificial plants of the previous item.

  • Colorful pillows. Splashes of color are professional staging standbys—and these attractively designed examples are, in fact, Walmart items.

In fact, St. Cloud home sellers with their own design sense can draw from any number of sources—from Walmart to Bergdorf Goodman. The touches they come up with don’t have to be budget-bruisers—especially when they will be accenting a quality property.

I’m here to spread the word when your own St. Cloud home goes up for sale—I hope you’ll call!
