staging a home center street lending email list
Without a doubt, it’s worth the expense to stage a home. The question is whether you really need to hire a professional or if you can stage a home with the help of family and friends. If you are in the business of flipping homes to make a profit, consider recycling the same décor items, art pieces, mirrors, rugs, and furniture pieces. Make it easy, find the look that sells and then replicate it. With furniture, you can stick to the basic browns, whites and blacks so it’s easier to change interior paint colors as the trends change over time. As far as how to stage a home to attract more offers, there are a few tips you can use such as touring new model homes for ideas. According to an article by U.S. News & World Report, the extra money you spend to prepare your flip pays off in terms of final sale price and how quickly the home sells.
