If you’re looking to sell your home in 2018, you know the basics. Improve your curb appeal, make sure the house is clean, update what you can. What you may not have considered is not just tidying up and decluttering your home, but actually staging it.
Staging, or preparing your residence for sale to make it appealing to the majority of potential buyers, increases your chances not only to sell quickly, but to sell for a higher price. According to a 2017 survey by the National Association of Realtors, a majority of real estate professionals believe staging increases the sale price of the home anywhere from 1 to 15 percent! Staging is more than just decorating. It means choosing props, moving or removing furniture that makes the space look cramped, and creating focal points in the main living areas.
