Elite Austin Combines Experience and Perspective to Attract Home Buyers
The staging company helps home sellers increase their ROI by delivering stunning and practical designs

People are paying attention to design now more than ever. Whether they’re working remote in picturesque coffee shops, scheduling reservations months in advance for trendy restaurants, or even waiting in hour long lines to take photos in front of colorful murals, it’s clear that people are prioritizing aesthetics above all else.
This obsession with ambiance also translates to real estate. In a market as competitive as Austin’s, properties must not only rely on their exterior design, but their interior design to close the deal.
No one can testify to this more than Austin based staging company, Elite Austin.
Elite Austin has been furnishing homes for sale in the greater Austin area with stylish yet functional furniture since 2014. Locally and woman owned, the team at Elite is dedicated to bringing life into listings with their expertly sourced collection of furniture.
When looking for a home, buyers are not just looking for a house, they are looking for a lifestyle. Future homeowners want to easily envision themselves in each tour they take, otherwise they lose interest. This is why staging is crucial in the selling process.
“Empty rooms and blank white walls are often uninspiring and underwhelming to prospective buyers,” says Delainey Peterson, Elite Austin’s Creative Operations Manager. “Not every person can walk into a room and immediately know how they will position their furniture or what design style best fits a home.”
Staging can help clients visualize possibilities for a home that they may not have otherwise and prompt real, meaningful attachments to a property. It’s no secret that environments affect mood. Countless studies have shown the positive impact that beautiful spaces can have on mental health. In a process as strenuous as finding a new home, why not give prospective buyers a lift in their spirits with a fabulously staged home?
“We assess each property’s architectural and interior design style, the scale and shape of the rooms, the flow of the home, and the potential buyer demographic,” says Peterson. “It’s our job to determine what will attract the most buyers and focus our efforts on shining the spotlight on those areas.”
Their meticulous attention to detail yields astounding results. Homes that use Elite Austin sell 64% faster, spending only 1-10 days on the market. Staged homes are also more likely to sell for more, with 85% of staged homes selling up to 23% over their original asking price.
“Elite Austin brings not only years of experience to each staging installation, but also a different perspective than that of a homeowner, real estate agent, or builder,” explains Peterson. “Our team knows, from years of trial and error, what prospective buyers want and need to see in a home to push them to make an offer.” It also doesn’t hurt that all their furniture and decor is available to the buyer for rent or purchase.
Staging is a low risk, high reward investment that requires no hassle on the homeowner’s behalf. Give your property the chance to shine in Austin’s fast paced market while also giving yourself one less responsibility in the stressful selling process.
