If you are planning to sell your home, one idea to consider may be hiring a company who does professional staging and remodeling specifically to assist you with preparation. If you've done remodeling project in Portland, for instance, and you're ready to put your house on the market but you need a little more help than just an updated kitchen, one company in Portland states that national independent studies show professional staging helps you sell your home quicker and for a better price. “Strong impressions are formed within the first ten seconds when buyers view homes for sale,” states the website for Creative Concepts, Home Staging and Contracting.
The company offers such services as furniture placement, recommendations for paint colors, and cosmetic repairs to prepare your home for sale. For example, if you have already moved and your home is empty, the company can place furniture in your home to make it warmer and more appealing.
