Why Staging

Staging benefits

-Staged properties can increase the number of offers and selling price in hot markets.

-Professionally staged homes present and show better than competing houses for sale, including new construction homes and higher – priced houses.

-Buyers view professionally staged listings as “well maintained”.

-Photos of professionally staged listings look better on the Real estate listings site, as well as in print.

-Professionally staged listings “STAND-OUT” in prospective buyers’ minds.
