In today’s real estate world, the first showing is online and the second showing is in the actual home. Does it make economic sense to paint walls, refinish hardwood floors or redo a bathroom when this can be done virtually and shown online? Ila and Betsy will discuss the pros and cons of virtually staging a home and physically staging a home for sale. They will talk about how and when to use the services of a professional designer, stager and the advice of their realtor. The two will discuss what current buyers are looking for and ways to get the most out of the dollars put in to make a home stand out in today’s market. Topics will include choosing paint colors, eliminating pet odors, decluttering and more.
