Renovation, Staging, and Preparing Your Home For Sale

Whether you plan to sell your home in a few months, few years or further down the road.

We will share with our attendees the improvements that double and triple the amount of your investment and which ones are not profitable. We will show examples of cost effective before and after shots of projects we have done and answer individual questions. We will also speak to curb appeal and landscaping.

We look forward to seeing you there and having an interactive experience.
