My guest this week on "Open for Business" was home staging expert Brandi Cernohlavek, ASPM - ASP Trainer. Brandi was recently honored as the "Home Stager of the Year" out of 22,0000 home stagers across the country.

Recent statistics gathered by shows that 94 percent of homes staged by an Accredited Staging Professional sold in 29 days or less, compared to an average of 145 days for homes that were not staged. What’s more, homes staged by Accredited Staging Professionals stay on the market 83 percent less than a home that has not been staged.

Brandi provided tips on ways that home staging can assist in selling your home faster and more more money by showing value and smart marketing ideas.You can read comments from some of her satisfied clients by clicking here.
