This month’s home selling tip:

Staging your home can mean the difference between a home buyer coming in and saying “wow!” or “ew!” If your home doesn’t exude the right vibe, house hunters won’t even give your property a second glance. So enlist the help of a professional stager, or ask your Realtor if they provide the service. Stagers can totally transform a space by removing unnecessary and outdated pieces and bringing in rented or found items that create that perfect, saleable “look.”
