Work with an Agent To Determine Which Updates To Make

In order to maximize the benefit of your efforts, consider having your home staged. Staging helps potential buyers envision their lives in property more readily. This is corroborated by the National Association of Realtors' finding that 82% of buyer’s agents said staging increased prospective buyers’ visualization of the house and almost half stated that it had an impact on most buyers’ general view of the home. Staging can make all the difference when it comes to speed and price for your sale — make sure to take advantage!
