Yes, professional home staging is an important investment for home sellers. There are plenty of statistics and testimonials that tell of its financial benefits. It is a very practical business decision. But that's not all it is! Professional home staging is a gift homeowners can give themselves ...
Yes, folks, this is the same room. Gloria Home Staging, Inc. in Winter Springs, FL transformed this teenager’s bedroom into a home office. Quite a difference, if I do say so myself!                            
              The average home here in the Orlando, Florida, region is on the market for 111 days before it sells. That means that the average home seller goes through nearly 3 months of showings and stress before someone finally buys the home. But why be average? Why not be one who sells your ho...
