Staging is the new "buzzword" in real estate. It refers to the process of setting the stage, so to speak, when marketing your home. This means getting the property to show to its best ability in order to obtain a quicker sale at the best possible price. This can include but is not limited to re-organizing and straightening up and removing clutter - to actual redecorating, painting, clever furniture placement, "de-personalizing", and freshening. Since all of these things really work, many top agents are really paying attention and taking courses in professional staging. Of course, seller cooperation is mandatory in this endeavor and the team approach has been yielding great results for sellers!
