In the current Real Estate Market, budgets are tight. Let me help you come up with an affordable Marketing plan.

Everyone who sells a home thinks to tidy it before potential buyers visit. But do sellers understand how to play up their home's assets and mask its flaws in order to sell it quickly and for top dollar? This is exactly what a home stager does. A home stager is a designer or stylist who suggests ways to make the home more appealing to potential buyers.

"When selling your house, you're emotionally invested in the home you've created," said Holly Slaughter, editor-in-chief of the Tips and Tools. "Hiring a professional home stager, who is impartial, can help highlight your home's selling points and make it more appealing to a wide range of buyers."

So what do you need to know when making the decision whether or not to hire a home stager?

Select your level

Home staging offers many levels of service. For $100 or less, a home stager will walk through your house and offer advice on what is the best way to present your home for your upcoming showings. You may be told to clean up the clutter, hang pictures or mirrors in new locations, repaint the walls or scrub those hard to reach areas of the floors. For a higher fee, a stager can perform a more hands-on role such as repositioning furniture, arranging flowers and suggesting great tips for highlighting your home's curb appeal. And then for an even higher fee, home stagers can redecorate your home from a warehouse full of furniture and decor items, bring in shrubs and annuals or clean out that one room collecting clutter over the years.

It may be worth every penny!!!

As the real estate industry often stresses, the first impression is the key factor in selling your home. Typically, a potential buyer has made up their mind while ten seconds in to your driveway! That really doesn't leave too much room for fault.
