To all my blog readers and subscribers, I always try to bring to you things of value and substance whether or not it came from me or another colleague in the real estate industry.
This is yet another one of those instances, Sharon Tara, a professional Home Stager out the New Hampshire area has some great and practical advise that I think anyone who owns a home and is considering selling your home or a prospective home buyer would benefit from.

Home staging is often a last resort strategy, used when all else fails. Too many sellers and Realtors take a "wait and see" attitude when it comes to staging and it ends up costing them thousands of dollars.
Most sellers say they are serious about selling their home, but haven't even scratched the surface when it comes to preparation and presentation of their product for sale.
When sellers underestimate what needs to be done in preparation and over value when determining their selling price, Realtors find themselves listing with their hands tied, based on the seller's unrealistic expectations.
"We'll see how it goes"
"We'll give it a month"
"We'll have to lower the price"
"Maybe we should try staging"
Home staging is not something to be "tried." Home staging is preparation...
To prepare, by definition "to put in proper condition or readiness", is done first not last. If you really are serious about selling and want to make the best impression on potential buyers, work smart right from the beginning. Have a home staging consultation, prior to listing instead of trying staging later.
