Staging is a critical strategy for selling your home at the highest market value. However, many times I find confusion about what really is staging? Isn’t it just having furniture?
Let me tell you the story of one client’s challenge as an example. He had a luxurious Rittenhouse Square condo which was being used for an office. He didn’t want to professionally stage, and didn’t want to move until the condo was under contract. We did our best to show it in it’s best possible light, but here’s what buyers saw:
