Putting Your Home Center Stage

Putting your home up for sale can be a stressful endeavor, with many different factors to consider. From determining a listing price, to figuring out how much renovation is needed before the listing; selling a property requires a long checklist of do’s and dont’s. While most sellers know to keep their homes clean, bright and free from clutter, one step that is often overlooked by many sellers is the importance of staging. Most people try to avoid staging due to the expense and time, and with typical staging costs around $2,500 it’s sometimes hard to rationalize that expense as an investment. However, staging is an investment and one that, if done properly, will pay significant dividends. Here are several reasons that sellers should consider staging their homes before putting them on the market. Click here for full article.
