Congratulations on staging your home for sale!

With staging complete, the showings begin. It’s important to maintain the staged look throughout the time on market. Be prepared for showings on short notice and have a plan for quick removal of children and pets.

If your staging needs a quick refresh, please give us a call.

Prior to showings and open houses, run through this checklist to make sure your property shows it’s best.
