Staging your house:

Living in your house is one thing.  Staging it to appeal to the maximum number of potential buyers is quite another.  Getting rid of over-sized furniture and clutter is an important first step.  Consider hiring a storage container via pods.com.  There are multiple on-line resources to help guide you with staging your house for maximum impact.  You can also refer to our staging checklist.
