You know, Dorie Dillard Austin TX, that I would love this post! You and I speak the same Real Estate language! When I am out and about with buyers and walk into vacant or not-in-showing-condition homes, I always think if only they had hired an agent who believes in the power and value of home staging, it would be pending already! But, better for my buyers. They face less competition on these homes and may even snag one below list price, or with a seller subsidy!

Staging a home for success is so important. Not everyone has the $$$$ for a full staging, but we can always arrange furniture, declutter and touch up paint!

Hello Dorie - first impressions matter.  And lasting ones in real estate can often be connected with offers.  Staging can make a property for sale stand out against its competition.   And that's a difference that can make a lot of $en$e to those looking to sell.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX  Many years ago I had a tape on how to dress your house for success. I left it with my client. She did everything the tape said, and the house sold in a day over full price!

This is good information to share with prospective home sellers. It does take some time and effort to best prepare a home for marketing.

Hi Dorie- excellent tips. Staging doesn't have to break the bank. Cleaning, painting, and repairing can go a long way!

Staging is becoming more accepted and understood by sellers. Always a good idea to do anything that helps a buyer to see themselves in the house.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX - there seems to be a rise in marketing realtors in my area to take a 1 day Staging class for under $100.00 and in one day you can get Certified! Image that! I say no thanks to that but yes to a properly Certified Stager
