I am not suggesting you leave your new top of the line digital television and custom speakers although I am sure your buyers would not mind a housewarming gift!
No, what I am suggesting is, if you are going to sell a house or condo you are not living in, don't remove all the furniture and contents.
If you are going to be living in your home as it is marketed, remove excess furnishings. Too much furniture can make any room appear smaller!
You want to see some photographic examples of before and after professional staging?
Take a look at these by Atlanta Georgia professional home stager Kathy Nielsen. Amazing transformations are not necessarily major expenditures either!
Murrieta California's Janice Sutton offers some amazing examples as well of before and after pictures.
Dianna Young of Edmonds, Washington encourages us to sell a lifestyle, not just a condo!
One does not have to look very hard to find examples of dramatic changes staging brings to an empty house. Call one of your local home staging professionals. Ask them about a free consultation, if offered.
I am not a home stager nor do I pretend to be one. I believe you will find many real estate agents who know how to market a house and a lot less about staging one!
There are several very capable home staging professionals in Brevard County, Florida. One I feel very comfortable recommending is Nora Marek at Melbourne Home Staging, LLC. Give Nora Marek a call at 321-795-8761 to discuss how she can help get your home ready to sell!
It is a very competitive market and sellers must do all they can to stand out from the rest - staging is key!
