Home Staging and Interior Design

Whether a buyers or sellers real estate market, your Realtor has already suggested to clear out the clutter and get your home staged to maximize its value and speed the marketing along.  When that front door opens for the first time, your home has less time than a TV commercial to turn on a prospective buyer.  It’s more than a fresh coat of white paint or waxing your floors, but bringing your home alive so that buyers can say in their heart and in their mind, “this is perfect for my family!”
