Staging Works! Priority For Vacant Homes

 Staging Sells Houses!

Vacant Living Room... with the proper Stager that is.

For those nay sayers who do not see the value, yet. I challenge you to prove your point. Over the years there have been a few bumps in the road hiring Stagers that over stage, over charge or just plain have no flare. However, once you have an expert on staff I assure you will never sell another vacant home without staging again!

There are a number of reasons I truly believe in staging, but if there is anything it would be just to have a Great Picture! We all know a picture is worth a 1000 words and there is nothing more crucial to selling online than the best images! With the finest finishes and best neighborhoods a home will be quickly looked over without the ability to entice and allure.

Cost is too much? In a down market there is nothing better to spend my money on than the key to selling the house! Without a sale we have nothing right?! A sure track to expediting a sale other than being the cheapest apple in the bunch is to be the shiniest one! Even if your purse strings are tight like mine I know there is a stager out there who will get the job done, right!

A few tips on balancing the marketing expense

Stick to the Basics - Focus on Main Focal Points. Entry, Living Rooms, Kitchens, Masters

Look for Experience - Review Portfolios and References. Watch Quality & Colors

Find A Company That Owns More Than Rents. This keeps their costs down & your's too

I am a big fan of staging also-especially vacant homes. Great photos online sell homes, and vacant homes just don't photograph as well as a professionally staged home.
