Does staging matter?

When working with sellers in the initial stages, I often inform them that the first impression when a buyer walks into their home is one of the most important telling features. If the property is unkept and lacking a certain flow where someone is able to envision themselves in the home or even the environment outside the home, then you may have lost a possible sale.

Things to remember when getting ready to put your house on the market:

1. Clean the house of clutter.
2. Take stock of your staging inventory. Note what furniture needs to be rearranged or moved in order to create a sense of flow and openess. If you don't have an eye for it, hire someone who does. The little bit you spend up-front will go a long way at the closing table. You'll get top dollar.
3. Take note of those little fix-it projects you've been meaning to do and get it done prior to going on market. When the home inspection time comes, you'll have less negotiating coming from the buyer which means more money in your pocket at the closing.
