When getting your home ready to sell, there are lots of ways to make sure you best present your home to buyers. Read our article about ways to get your home ready to sell.

The pandemic has influenced the home staging and design industry. According to REALTOR Magazine bloggers, home staging professionals are shifting their focus on a few key elements when staging a home.

Cozy Vibes

With so many people spending so much time at home these days, buyers may want to see some cozy spots in your home.  Think soft blankets, coffee stations or adding a hammock outdoors.





Home Office

These days, a lot of people are forced to or choose to work from home. Staging a home office helps buyers see how they can work from home. If you don’t have a true office in your home, consider setting up an “office space”. ┬áStaging a desk (or two!) showing that space can be used for that purpose. Not only are adults working from home, but many schools are opting for virtual school so staging a home school area as well isn’t a bad idea!





Outdoor Living Area

With so much time being spent at home, people want a space outside they can use as a “getaway”. Staging this year will focus on using all of the property – not just the interior. Do you have a bonus room you could turn into a “sun room”? Or a great back patio you can add furniture to? Make the spaces comfortable and a place you’d like to spend time in.

What our clients are saying:

Jody is amazing. She knows the market and was able to advise us on all our many concerns. We so appreciated how responsive she was; within minutes of submitting an online request for realtor contact on a house, she had called us. All our communications with her were like that; we never had to wait long to hear back from her. She was patient and always willing to sit down and meet with us. When we found the house we wanted, she worked tirelessly to secure it for us, and she was extremely patient with us. She was easy to communicate with, understand, and a pleasure to work with – I highly recommend Jody!


Jody was awesome to work with. We were new to the area and she was helpful and knowledgeable about not only the housing market, but schools, and lenders. She worked with my work schedule for showings. Jody also stayed late to write an offer to meet our schedule. I would recommend Jody to anyone needing a realtor.


Jody is FANTASTIC!! We were first time home buyers and she was with us ever step of the way! She never made us feel silly for being new to the process. She definitely knows the area, always kept us up to date on new listings and was just a delight to work with. I would have absolutely zero hesitation recommending her to anyone. Thanks for all the hard-work Jody! We love our house!


My wife and I used Jody Savage for the sale of our home in Gallatin Gateway, MT. Jody was exceptional in all phases of our sale. We had multiple offers over asking price and sold our home in two days! Jody uses up to date modern marketing, was extremely professional and knowledgeable regarding our market and addressing our needs. She was great to work with and very responsive to any questions we had. Jody is the best in the business and we highly recommend her services!


Jody Savage is knowledgeable, trustworthy and tireless. I purchased a property this spring (2017) near Bozeman; Jody represented me as well as the seller in the transaction. Jody led me through the entire process because this was the first property I had ever purchased. HOA complications and other details made the purchase more difficult. Jody undertook a boat-load of legwork to make the transaction go smoothly. I hope to work with Jody again.
