Staging to Sell

September 27, 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Are you interested in staging your homes but you don’t know what to do or think you can’t afford it?
Staged homes sell quicker and for more money! Join us for a basic overview in the value of home staging and how it can benefit homebuilders, remodelers or real estate agents.
Participants of this session will learn how to:

• Help their bottom line with staging
• Identify the basic key elements of staging
• Market effectively using staging as a basic tool
• Prepare a home in five easy steps
• Stage on a budget

This session will include group exercises in which the attendees will view current MLS listings to identify staging problems and ways to fix them.

Melanie Serra will facilitate this session. Melanie is the owner of Interior Revivals, Inc. here in the Atlanta area. She is also an instructor for the Emory University-Center for Life Long Learning. Melanie works closely with the local real estate community staging homes for resale, and merchandising model homes. She has been praised for increasing the average market value of a home by 20 percent with her "staging" techniques.
