I recently staged a home that has been unoccupied for months. It had furniture, clothing and "stuff" stacked everywhere... not to mention the 7 cats that lived there alone. This was a total group effort! The realtor cleaned, ironed drapes and much more. The family members that were left to sell the home helped haul out all the furnishings that I didn't need, and put it all in storage. They assisted me with much of the lawn trimming and cleanup. I basically only used what was in the home, (but I did bring in a small amount of accessories and greenery to finish it off.) I've attached just two of sixteen "collages" of each room. Check out the other rooms at this site. Who says staging can't make all the difference in the world?
