The Secret to Top Dollar Sales - Staging Your Home

Staging is the very best proven way to get top dollar for your home as you prepare it for sale. Homes that are staged sell faster and for more money!

This is because Staging sets the scene throughout the house to create immediate buyer interest in your property. This will then lead to your home selling for the highest possible price in today's market.

That is why we have made a commitment to have a professional stager among our Associates, Leigh Ann Ganuelas. Leigh Ann founded and was the President of the Tucson chapter of Accredited Staging Professionals (ASP). Her work has been featured in the Arizona Daily Star and KOLD - Channel 13. Staging your home is crucial in today's market!

Remember, the way you live in your home, and the way you market and sell your house are two different things.

Interior Checklist

Exterior Checklist

An easy way to see effectively "staged" homes is to visit decorated models.  Decorating a model is expensive, but builders are willing to invest the cost because they understand just how well a "staged" home sells. However, staging does not need to cost you any money and is essential when you are competing in today's market. It can be as simple as packing away most of your personal items and eliminating clutter.

Before you put your home on the market, give it the sniff test. Many people are oblivious to scents, but others are extremely sensitive to offensive odors. To eliminate bad smells, bathe your pets, freshen the cat litter box frequently, shampoo your carpets, dry clean your drapes, and empty trash cans, recycling bins and ash trays.

Place open boxes of baking soda in smell-prone areas, and refrain from cooking fish or strong-smelling foods. Introduce pleasing smells by placing flowers or potpourri in your home and using air fresheners. Baking a fresh or frozen pie, bread or some other fragrant treat is another common tactic.
