Showhomes, the nation’s leading home staging franchise, shares insight with local market.
In today’s housing market, selling your home can be difficult if you don’t know what home buyers are looking for.
Contemporary buyers are taking to the internet before stepping foot in a home.
However, they can’t notice problem areas like chipped paint and aged trim online. That’s why their first experience setting foot in a home needs to be a good one.
“You only have one chance to wow a buyer,”Nancy Jones, owner of Showhomes Triad, NC, told the Winston-Salem Journal in an interview.
