    As a European here in the US, the concept is staging is very odd to us. We presume that buyers are able to use their imagination but I’ve certainly noticed that it’s the ‘done thing’ over here. I totally agree that for the pictures staging is essential. If they don’t like the pictures they won’t even come through the door. Maybe in my next life I’ll do this for a job, it sounds like fun.

    I totally agree with staging. Even in our little rental property we have noticed that it gets rented a lot easier if they view it with current tenants furniture inside, whereas if it is already empty when they view they perceive it to be a lot smaller.

    I totally agree that staging worked. We bought our house because it was so nicely staged! In fact, I took pictures of it at the open house, and then arranged our furniture the same way. I even purchases a few pieces of furniture like what the stager had used! Now, I need to declutter like we were going to sell….

    So true! Hiring a professional is worth it. I hired a home stager before I put my place on the market. I had an offer within days! It certainly didn’t feel like “home” to me because it was more neutral but it was more appealing to the buyers. Great advice and I love the pictures!

    A realtor told my client that she should spend $25,000 to update her house…and that she would get it all back. He said the people buying houses now can afford to pay more for a house, but would not afford the time to do it. He was right and she sold her house for her asking price. I am in the midwest, do you see this to be true across the country? ~Cathy

    Great tips from Teresa, Sabra! I can imagine staging being a very fun job, decluttering not so much so.
