Staged Homes sell for more. Often times for much more.
The term "Staging" in regards to home preparations before selling originated from the world of theater and the practice of 'staging' or presenting a show in order that it looked its best to the audience.
Today, the idea of Staging Includes advice regarding what should be done to make a property that is to be sold as appealing as possible.
It often includes a consultation with a Professional Stager who is talented and experienced in the art of presentation. Most Stagers will utilize the furnishings and decor of the existing owner; other times additional accessories will be brought in, such as art, linens, and small decorative items to enhance and maximize the effect.
Sometimes by simply removing certain items and rearranging the furniture, the best effect can be obtained at a minimal cost.
Either way, an initial consultation with a professional Stager can be incredibly helpful. Statistics show that it can greatly enhance your chances of selling your home more quickly and even for a better price.
