A sluggish economy has made it tougher to sell house. So sellers are looking for an edge, which is why a large number of real estate agents recommend home staging.
Home staging has become so important that real estate agents say it offers more bang for the buck than any other activity except cleaning and decluttering, according to HomeGain’s survey of 1,000 real estate agents released last fall. In the 2007 survey, it was their No. 3 tip.
To save time and hassle, hire a staging service to prepare the home for sale.
Your Real Estate Agents should be overselling the positives of the property. If you don’t feel confident your agent is doing everything possible to market your home, it may be time to give notice to close your agreement and try another real estate agent near you.
