Home Staging Checklist for a Show-Ready Home

Do you have a Home Staging Checklist for keeping your home show-ready?

Darden HIll StagedStaging your home and keeping it show-ready can make a BIG difference in how quickly your home sells and for what price. In addition to looking better online and in-person, homes that are staged typically spend about 73% less time on the market (Real Estate Staging Association). That’s why, when you list with the Mallett Integrity Team, we provide free, professional home staging services to stage your home and get it ready to sell. We also provide our clients with a home staging checklist for getting and keeping their homes show ready. That way, when a potential buyer calls for a showing, they’re always ready. Take a look at our home staging checklist, and be sure to call us if you’re thinking about listing your home or making a home purchase – we’d love to work with you!
