Home Staging San Diego: Should I Pay a Professional?
“I’m the Probate Executor for my father’s San Diego home. He recently passed away and its current market value is around $475,000. The family has decided to sell Dad’s house during the San Diego probate and I’m wondering if it’s a good idea to hire a professional stager?”
I’m a firm believer in staging. Experience shows that staging a San Diego probate house is always a good idea. San Diego homebuyers can only see what a house is, not what it can be. Many times I’ve heard homebuyers comment on how small rooms are; often it’s because they cannot visualize the placement of furniture in those rooms. In my opinion, the expense of staging a San Diego probate house ($2,500-$4,000) will be recouped in the negotiated purchase price and, more importantly, it will help the San Diego buyers to “see” how their family will live in that home.
