Are you marketing your house to its home potential?

 

Make Your Property Stand Out to Potential Buyers! 

Buying a home is an emotional affair often dictated by the buyer's gut feelings rather than hard facts. Staging your home makes it more welcoming, as potential buyers can immediately see what their life could be like if they called your house, "home."  

 

In today's technology driven world, over 95% of home buyers start their search on the internet so staging is a great way to make sure online photos stand out.  Home staging sets your house apart on all online and printed marketing materials and can boost the selling price to the top of the range for comparable homes.  Sellers have less than 7 seconds to catch a buyer's eye before swiping left.  

 

The National Association of Realtors released a Home Staging Report with the following statistics:

 

  • Over 93% of Buyer's Agents say staging has at least some effect on the buyer's view of the home.

  • Over 83% of buyers find it easier to visualize the property as their future home when staged.

  • Almost half of Seller's Agents believe the staging increased the value of the home up to 20% (even in this year's hot market).

 

In addition, home staging costs less than your first price reduction!  

 

I’m Sharon Schaffer, the business owner and certified home stager of GLASS CITY STAGERS.  We all have our own gifts and talents, and looking back over my childhood, I realize that mine is being able to walk into a room and visualize the best space layout.  I carefully choose scale-to-room furniture and accessories that complement each other throughout the space with great attention to detail.  I love staging vacant homes, consulting sellers in their occupied homes, and assisting clients with decorating their own homes throughout northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.

About

I was born and raised in Michigan and moved six times in 13 years with two toddlers! From Ohio to Michigan, Michigan to Georgia (sold first house; downsized and flipped second house), from Georgia to New Orleans and then back to Michigan so I have lived and know well the stress of moving.  I also understand the difficulty but importance of having your home 'show ready' at any given moment for those prospective buyers!


Looking back over my childhood, I recall how I use to look around a room and wonder "why this was here or that was there and how it would look better over there and usually changed it around."  So after returning to my hometown in 2014, my husband encouraged me to turn my experience, passion of houses, and decorating into a business and help others navigate through these same 'moving' waters.  


I work hard to bring the seller(s) relief while having fun helping them prepare their home for the competitive housing market.  Every property has its own personality and I love the challenge of enhancing each home differently without distracting from it.  Whether it's a vacant or occupied home, my passion is implementing the proper decor, scale-to-size furniture, and efficient space planning.​  I am a certified Professional Property Stager, a member of the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA), and the only accredited local home staging company of the Better Business Bureau Serving Northwest and West Central Ohio and Southeast Michigan.


Lastly, I realize some clients are not moving but want to update their home for their own enjoyment! It may not necessarily mean ripping out every wall but making smaller changes that freshen up their current space through paint, flooring, furniture, lighting, and/or accessories. I am detail-oriented and observant when helping clients create their own personalized space; my goal is meeting their decorating style for their season of life within the budget.


Thank you for visiting my website.  I am grateful to do what I do!

Testimonials

"When we sold Sharon and her family their home in Louisiana, it had literally been on and off the market for 2.5 years, with no contracts. After Sharon worked her magic and transformed it into such a desirable property, it only took us 6 days to sell it at 98% of list price when they relocated. She has a true gift for making a room come to life through proper use of color, furnishings and lighting. My only wish is that she was still working in my area and could help more of our home sellers with the staging they need to help de-clutter, de-personalize, and create a sense of home that welcomes prospective purchasers. She is gifted with her work but is also a ton of fun, takes time to listen, and is not afraid of a challenge. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Sharon

to anyone who is serious about getting their home ready to sell."
