Staging a home whether vacant or occupied typically results with the home selling faster. Much emphasis is placed on staging inside of the property and little on the outside.
I preview and show a lot of properties, this one deserved a post. A few days ago I was showing a vacant property. The home was beautifully staged, obviously by a professional. It was listed in my estimation about 10% lower than market value. This property has been listed for a considerable period.
So why has this property not sold? Price, no. Staging, no. Features and upgrades, no.
My buyers and I had to walk over this to get to the front door. One picture says it all. Staging requires frequent home checks. Check the inflated beds increasing air when deflated. Refresh bath towels. Above all, be sure to have the front entry cleaned at all times.
