If you’re not staging, you’re leaving money on the table.

 

That’s not popular opinion, it's fact. It doesn’t matter how exquisite your taste or how beautifully your home is decorated, every house does better when it’s prepared for sale. There’s both an art and a science to Staging and knowing what buyers are looking for is key.

Staging doesn’t have to be expensive. Although painting and repairs may be essential, simply rearranging furniture and moving art from room to room can make a huge difference. Lighting, carpets and flowers are three of the most important and often ignored areas of focus. And curb appeal and exterior details are critical. If buyers see a worn out front door or dated porch light outside, they’ll wonder what’s old or in need of repair inside. That’s dangerous. If you turn buyers off before you get them over the threshold, you’ve probably lost them.
