Danita Murdoch, realtor at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Showcase Properties in Dothan, tells us ways we can stage our homes to make them sell quicker.
Staging Works! Selling your home can be a stressful time, especially if there are time constraints. Designer Homes & Staging can help you keep your peace of mind knowing that your home will be designed to sell & quickly. Homes that are clutter free, designed for buyers and designed to enhance size and ﬂow, have proven to sell faster and for more than those that are vacant or with someone living with their own furnishings onsite. Even homes that are in need of renovation can be made to look and feel more beautiful and sell fast.
