Real Estate Brokers will tell you - Selling an empty home is harder and it takes longer. Strategic placement of a few pieces and accessories may be all that it takes to create a warm and welcoming feeling. It allows potential buyers to imagine what their furnishings may look like.

Staging a vacant also gives life to MLS photos, and buyers are less likely to give a lowball offer . Lifestyle selling attracts a greater number of potential buyers (0 comments)

The amount of time and money to be invested in your house is entirely your decision. Dressed For Success works within your budget to do as little or as much as you require. Staging is an INVESTMENT, not an expense. Staging your home will only cost you if you don't stage it. After about a month on the market, most realtors will suggest a price reduction. Typically $5,000 and up! That is a lot more than the typical home staging fee. Isn't it better to be Dressed for Success from the start? (0 comments)
kingston ontario real estate: What Home Staging is NOT - 04/04/07 02:00 PM
Home staging is not about tearing out kitchen cupboards or doing major renovations. It is a concentrated effort to direct a buyers eyes to views, square footage and focal points to create an immediate WOW factor that will make a positive impact on potential buyers the second they walk through the door. It is about eliminating the eye catching distractions, highlighting and showcasing the existing features of your home so buyers can imagine themselves living there.
