So now we had to clear out the home, clean it, paint some rooms, repair a few items, have the gutters cleaned and the windows washed, and...then stage it. I think most people know what staging is now, where a designer comes in and places furniture, artwork and accessories in a home to show it's best features. I'll connect you HERE to the photos of the home after staging. Oh, by the way the investor told me he would pay $185,000 for the house. I don't recommend answering those letters and calls that come to the executor right after a person has passed. I recommend hiring a professional to give you advice.
