Music - A Very Important Part of Home Staging and Open Houses

By
Home Stager with Dezigner Digz

Proper lighting, whether it be task or mood lighting, is very important when showing a home during Open Houses.  One item that can literally set the stage, but often gets overlooked, is music.

Of course, it depends on the music you choose.  You probably don't want to be playing heavy metal, punk or rap music.  As they say, there's a time and place for everything. 

The music chosen for your Open House should be geared to your target audience.  For example, if you are selling a condo in a trendy area of a large city, you might want to play something that would suit that lifestyle.  Remember, not only are you selling a property, you are selling a way of life.  

Music is such a personal choice.  You are never going to appeal to everyone.  However, a safe rule of thumb is to keep the music fairly neutral.  You can't go too wrong with light classical music, jazz, or my favourite, the European lounge/chill-out music that is so popular in Europe at the moment.  A personal favourite of mine is the Café Del Mar series.  Café Del Mar - Volumes 9 and 10, in my opinion, are the best to date. 

So, along with hiring your home stager to stop by and "primp" your home on the morning of your Open House, don't forget to have a selection of music ready as well.  It may sound like such a small thing, but it can make a large impact if you select wisely.

Dezigner Digz is a home staging company in Burlington, Ontario serving Ancaster, Hamilton, Burlington, Aldershot, Bronte and Oakville.

Charlene, Your information is so good. I have noticed when I walk into the local convenience store here it depends on which "child" is behind the counter as to which music one will be accosted with. Most often the choices make me want to leave in a hurry. If there were another store to choose from you know where I would be.

Did anyone see "Flipping Out" on Bravo Tuesday night? Jeff the flipping guru was trying to sell his house and had programed the stereo with soft non-offensive music and one of his house assistants had exchanged a CD for one of 50 Cents (he a rapper). It was hysterical! But it's a point well taken.
