Staged to Sell WI LLC

@karen7045 - Can you leave some furnishings in the home? I would try to keep the basics - a dining room set, mater bedroom and living room. Maybe you have extra furniture you could use in the new home temporarily? This way you get the benefits of a staged home without the cost of rental furniture!

@karen7045, I agree 100% with Staged to Sell WI LLC. Hire a stager who can use your furnishings and accessories to stage your home. Every area doesn't have to be completely furnished - just your main living areas. But do keep some of the secondary bedrooms, for example, completely empty rather than one plant in corner or one chair, for example. This 'vignette staging' appears sparse and weird in MLS pictures and doesn't bring value to your home or to the stager. By hiring a professional stager, you would just invest in their staging talent & expertise to create a masterpiece with your things and not have to invest in any rental furniture! Blessings to you as you sell your home!
