Staging Your Home
Staging your home goes significantly beyond an effort to make it look neat, clean and well-maintained. Similarly to the way stagehands set the stage for Broadway productions, you can stage your home to create a production designed to “WOW” prospective purchasers.

Staging a property this way helps prospective buyers visualize themselves living in the home.
An article in the Wall Street Journal published a study showing that professionally “staged” homes sold quicker and for more money.
