HOME STAGING A DECEASED ESTATE

Deceased Estate Sales

Senior citizens often have houses that are too cluttered for modern tastes - too many chairs, rugs, doilies, ornaments, bookshelves and so on. That makes home staging a deceased estate an important decision that may add thousands of dollars to the sale price.

Even though much of it may have sentimental value to family, it can be hard to attract younger buyers or generate buyer competition if the home is not presented to appeal to buyers.

By home staging, your real estate photos will be much more appealing and draw more buyers to take a closer look.

See some before and after examples below of how some vendors have used home staging to sell quickly at good prices.
