Hello everybody and welcome to episode 14 of Ask the Estate Agent Podcast. This week’s episode is answering the many questions we have received concerning the subject of home staging. Firstly what is home staging? Should I consider this for selling my home? What are the benefits and costs? And how do I go about implementing this as part of a marketing strategy.
Now to answer these questions and more we are delighted to welcome to the show this week Anna Hart. Anna is an expert in this field and acts as an independent property consultant helping home owners and developers to successfully sell their properties. For over 7 years now she has created marketing strategies to achieve her clients goals whether that’s getting the top price or a fast sale or both! Home staging is certainly one of her key expertise and therefore I’m excited to have her on the show today to share her experience and knowledge and to answer all your questions on this subject!
