Staging your home is a great way to get more money out of your sale.
Would you like to sell your home for more money? Of course you would! Fortunately, there’s an easy way to increase the value of your house, and it’s called staging. Today I want to go through the steps of staging so that you can be prepared to get the most money out of your home sale.
There are many degrees of staging. At the most basic level, staging is simply looking at your home like a buyer would. Easy ways to make your home more appealing include cleaning up messes, getting rid of unnecessary clutter, and putting away personal photos to give your home a more neutral feel.
Preparing your home will also improve the quality of any professional photos you take. For example, if you remove excess furniture from a room, it will feel larger than it did before. Also, you want to remove some of your furnishing so that buyers can picture their own belongings in the empty space.

The next level of staging goes one step further than making the most of what you have. Instead, a professional stager will bring outside furniture into your home to make it really pop. Understandably, many sellers don’t want to go through all that hassle. If you’re in this boat, you may want to consider virtual staging.
With virtual staging, you don’t have to do anything. Once you move out of your home, my professional photographer will take pictures of the empty rooms and stage them digitally. If your house fits a modern design, we can add modern furniture. If buyers are looking for something classic, we can do that as well. When people see these photos online, they’ll get more excited about the possibilities of your home, and they may be willing to offer more money.
Whether you want some tips for rearranging your current furniture, to bring in a professional stager, or opt for virtual staging, all three options will net more money for your home than you would have received otherwise.
