HOME STAGING CAN ADD 10-15% TO A SALE PRICE
Whether you hire furniture for an empty home or home style using your existing furnishings, this is always worth doing.
Home staging sets your house apart from competing homes for sale, in your area, in your price range. It can elevate buyer interest and put your house at the top of their short lists.
Dressing your home for buyers (rather than for you as the seller) in a way that appeals to the broadest buyer demographics, helps create the dream for buyers (in their price range)
Couples selling can often disagree about styling. If this is happening to you, the Sell Smarter Kit (available on every page of this website) will definitely help.
