selling your woodbridge home: Staging Your Home To Sell? Don't Forget To Check The Comps As Well - 09/04/13 12:13 PM
Yesterday with 30 minutes to unwind I happened to turn on HGTV just as the show "Get It Sold" came on the air.  Having stayed out of the debate on whether home staging makes the difference between a sale or not, I decided to pay close attention to the episode to see if it would change my mind.
