Staging Your Home Can Make the Difference, in La Jolla

By
Real Estate Agent with The Mills Team

If you are trying to sell your home in La Jolla, staging it can sometimes make the difference in selling your home quicker.  In some areas stagers seem to be making quite an impact on slagging home and condo sales.  With all the homes on the market, you must begin thinking about what it is that will make your home stand out from all the rest. 

What does a stager do?  For starters, staging pros are trained to prepare your home and optimize its potential to sell.  They do so by improving traffic flow throughout the house, by rearranging furniture and getting rid of the clutter.  Basically, they view the home as if they were a potential buyer.

As you probably already know, first impressions are everything, especially in today's housing market.  The job of a stager is to take every aspect of the home into consideration from the outside to the inside.  This will ensure that your home will look its best when the day of your open house comes.

We always work with a stager and I will send her in whenever we have a new listing.  Sites like stagedhomes.com state that 94% of homes that were staged usually sell within a month of being added to the market.
