First impression - It takes less than 15 seconds for a potential buyer to determine how your home appeals to them. What do they see? The living room filled with kids toys, the bathroom with makeup on the counter, the dining room with exercise equipment in it? Pass. You just lost a possible buyer. Staging your home gives you an edge over the competition, decreases the amount of time your home sits on the market and helps provide the return your most valuable asset deserves.
