One of the best kept secrets to selling a home fast isn’t about how low you drop the price or how much remodeling you do, but about something much more simple – staging.
Staging a home in preparation for a sale is becoming increasingly more popular due to how effective it is. It’s as simple as taking out most of your personal items in your home, so that the buyer can picture him or herself in there. Homes that are staged don’t linger on the market nearly as long as homes that are not staged. They also sell at least 6 percent above the asking price. Staging can run anywhere between $500 and $5,000.
