Staging a house is a bit different from improvements made over the years.
The focus of staging is to declutter and depersonalize the house so that potential buyers can readily imagine themselves living there.
This might mean some landscape improvements to enhance curb appeal, putting some furniture in storage, moving items so that there is a clear path into each room, taking down the family photos and re-painting as necessary.
A properly staged house can result in a quicker sale and a gain of as much as 1% on the sale of the average house.
And the best part is that you don't have to guess what will make your house more appealing to buyers. Your real estate agent can arrange an appointment with a stager to make sure your house shines in comparison to the competition.
