Check out the before/after photos for this Staging project. Each room looks MUCH better with the personal things removed, furniture rearranged and appealing visuals created. Next - seller has to PAINT the walls in all the rooms to brighten, neutralize for buyers, and update the look of the house. Other updating could take place depending on the seller's budget and timeframe for listing the house for sale.
Anything they can do UP FRONT to invest in the Staging process will come back in a better offer and faster sale!
