The Difference that Staging a Home to Sell Makes

I put a home on the market for a good friend of mine and an investor for less than 24 hours before I told her that we could get more money for the home without it looking like a bachelor pad and with it staged.  She agreed to take the home off the market, to let the ten tenants find a new home, and to pay $1,300 for staging.   We were able to put the home back on the market and sell it for $20,000 more than what it would have sold for looking like a bachelor pad.  Take a look at the transformation.  Staging pays off even if you don't hire professionals and simply clean up, pick up, and pack up before selling your home.  Home buyers needs to be able to imagine themselves  in your home with today's style of furniture.
