In the short time I have been a part of ActiveRain, I am amazed (and delighted) at out how many of you have either commented to my BLOGS directly or sent me an email about what I share.
I just thought I was an average guy with some thoughts and opinions and a love for what I do, and finally had a place to vent. But never the less... thank you all for your feedback!!!
Sooooo, today I was working on researching and understanding how staging relates to IRS publication 523... which is the IRS's missive on all the tax rules pertaining to a home seller selling their main house.
For those of you that use stagers... did you know that staging can be considered an advertising expense for the home seller, thus it can ultimatly reduce your seller's capitol gain? (if they have gain)
Yup... it's true, so that is another benefit of staging you can share with sellers that need a good staging.
I am "hell bent" on demonstrating that staging is not just on arranging a nic-nac or clearing some clutter off a counter.
Staging is an art... but it has good business ramifactions too.
Well that's enough for now... CRAIG
