Homes professionally staged sell 50% faster and for an average of 10% more than homes that are not staged. Buyers form an opinion about your home within the first 30 seconds of walking in the door. Many need to experience that “at home” feeling in order to gain interest in your home. We can set you up with a professional interior designer so that when touring your home, buyers will experience the emotional connection points that will make them say, “Wow, this is the ONE!”
We hire experts who master the creative side of photography such as angles, perspectives, and composition. They have complete knowledge of the technical side of exposure, HDR, supplemental lighting, color matching, and exposure blending.
Using our beautiful professional photographs, we will design flyers that will showcase your home in the best light. Flyers will also be distributed at Open Houses and left at your home for people to take after showings.
Virtual tours, also known as reality experiences, increase awareness, online traffic, quality leads and in-person visits.
We offer a comprehensive approach to repairing and restoring credit, so that our clients or potential buyers can be approved for a home loan.
