Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Around Atlanta

What is this new thing called "staging a home for sale"?  First it's been around awhile and used mostly for high-end homes.  Today everyone watches HGTV and can see what rearranging a few pieces of furniture can do for home.  Real estate agents have a home staged primarily for two reasons.  First to make the home more appealing to a larger cross-section of buyers and second reason is photos.  Staging can be done by a professional home stager, the homeowner or the real estate agent.

With color and furniture arrangement done, now the real estate agent is able to take interesting photos of your home.  Photos are the first impression for home buyers.  They use the photos to walk through a home, consider the size of rooms, and decide if the home would be somewhere they want to live.  Real estate agents use photos to tell the story of a home and neighborhood.  They create visual interest and excitementStaging a Home for Sale 2 Woodstock GARemember a picture is worth a thougsand words, so if you are selling your home, you want all those words to portray your home in its best light.
