HOME STAGING A DECEASED ESTATE

Deceased Estate Sales

It just has to be acknowledged that many senior citizens often have too many chairs, rugs, doilies, ornaments, bookshelves and wotnots.

While there's a lotta love going on in there, leaving the furnishings in the house makes it harder to attract younger buyers or anyone for that matter.

You just can't achieve an amazing real estate photo in such instances and let's face it, the photos are what draw people to the house.

See some before and after examples below of how some vendors have taken home styling or staging on board and sold quickly at good prices.
