Home Staging: Key to selling your home for the most possible money in the shortest amount of time:

Staging your property gives you a more competitive edge in today's market by transforming it into a marketable product. It works for all properties regardless of the price range. A staged property helps you sell your investment for top dollar. Do not settle for less at the closing table simply because you did not understand the value of staging or did not want to take the time or spend the money to do it properly.

In this world of busy buyers, a property has to be staged to appeal to their imagination. They want to be able to look at your home and know that they can live there. They want to know that their furniture will fit. They want to know that everything is in "move in" condition. That is why staging is so important. It allows buyers to imagine themselves living in your home with their stuff, not yours.

Do not have one person look at your house until it has been staged completely, this includes broker walkthrough, open houses, MLS or anything. Stage your home before you or your realtor takes the photos for the web. Over 70% of all new apartment/home searches are started on the Internet. It is imperative that the property looks good in the photos so that it can attract as many people as possible to see the real thing.

Selling an empty home can be a huge mistake. Buying or renting furniture is especially vital in an empty home. Empty homes do not show well and can sit on the market for months until a buyer with a good visual imagination comes along, or until the seller drops the price so low that the home is a steal.

A home for sale should always be presented in its best light and immaculate condition, which is not the reality of everyday life. Potential buyers do not want to see how you live, with your children, cats and dogs, and mess. They want to see themselves in a perfect house under perfect conditions and that is how a home on the market should always be presented. Everything needs a place. Find appropriate places to store your items. Litter boxes in the kitchen and trash cans in the pantry are just two examples of inappropriate placement.
