It's easy to see in this blog below how incredibly helpful staging homes can be in getting a home sold quicker and usually for a higher price!  I love the side by side photos to really show what a difference furniture and nice decorating can do for a home!

This house in Redding, CT was occupied, but un-staged, in the very beginning when it was put on the market. Therefore, the online photos showed the house furnished. I have to say it looked quite spacious online.

Shortly thereafter the home sellers moved out and the house was now vacant.

After the house had not sold for quite some time, the real estate agent suggested to the home sellers to have it staged. When I came to the house and saw the empty house, it looked small. How would home buyers be able to see fitting their furniture in here? I am sure this was the reason why this property had not sold after 101 days yet.

After we had it staged, it again looked very spacious, warm and welcoming. This proves how deceiving vacant rooms are as there is no point of reference in the room. After the house was staged, it SOLD within 32 days!

This example shows again, how important it is to have a vacant house staged if the goal is to sell fast and at the top dollar. After all, home buyers buy homes not houses.

and then this small room, which nobody could even imagine to be able to fit a bed. We staged it with a bed and a dresser and there was still enough space for a kid playing in this room and a small desk.
