      Staged Homes Sell Faster and Make You More Money

      According to real estate expert Barbara Corcoran, "you should never list a home without furniture". Instead, stage it. Staging (presenting a temporary platform for the space) gives buyers the opportunity to imagine it as their home, where their belongings and furniture will fit.  Staging a home does not require you to move everything out, but there are essential things you can do to offer more appeal and selling points. For example, recent trends in staging show that there is more focus on outside areas. This means more emphasis on your terrace, balcony, patio and/or exterior common area. Small changes can make a HUGE difference. 

      Staging, best left to the professionals, will show your home at it's best. Many sellers make the mistake of unrealistically pricing their homes, only to have to make a dramatic price cut because it is not selling. Statistics show that the investment in staging your home is generally less than the difference of lowering your sales price.  

      Do your homework: There are thousands of sites and videos out there with staging tips, ideas, and do's and don'ts; Search for an expert or ask your broker to refer one, who can bring fresh ideas, showcasing your homes' best features on all types of budgets, appealing to all types of people, and in the long run saving you tons of money and time!
