Selling Techniques - Staging a Home to Sell

Staging a home for a sale is as important as being priced ahead of the market. Staging is the art of preparing the house for sale. Staging is what you do after you've cleaned, decluttered, painted, made minor repairs; it's all about dressing the house for sale. Staging makes your house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, more habitable and, best of all; it makes home buyers want to buy it! The staging process starts when you search for a qualified listing agent by asking the questions regarding staging and preparing your home for sale. Some Real Estate Sales Professionals are had earned an ASP RE Certification which is an Accredited Staging Professional for Realtors designation. Other Real Estate Professionals will have a certified ASP Staging Professional on retainer or on staff. According to statistics, 94.6% of ASP Staged homes sell within 35 days. Additionally, the cost of staging a home can have a 300% return on that investment during the sales process. Using a Realtor that has these resources for you will reduce the days your home is on the market and get you a much better price for your home. The "Seven C's Of Home Staging" include clean, clutter free, color, compromise, creativity, commitment and communicate. Remember that the investment of staging your home is far less expensive that the possible price reductions on your home may incur during it's time on the market.

Okay, points for not self-promoting.  But, if you must pretend to explain, educate, and communicate by cutting and pasting, watch for logical inconsistencies.  You begin by saying staging is what is done after cleaning and decluttering.  You end by saying cleaning and decluttering are two of the seven C's of staging. There is a heck of a lot of confusion about what home staging is out there already.  Points taken off for adding to the confusion.

There is a difference between decluttering, designing, and staging. Big difference.
