The Importance of Staging

When selling your home it is important to stage it so the buyer enjoys the experiencing of seeing and then buying your home. As I mentioned in my last blog the important place to start is to de-clutter which you can do by either storing things elsewhere until you sell or actually recycling or pitching. Your buyer wants to see the house in such a way that they can visualize their things in the house. This means less furniture, pictures and accessories is better. Those favorite little knickknacks might be great for you but just distract a buyer. Freshen up by painting – it is reasonable in price but makes a big impact especially if it is a soft color. Add some nice new pillows, new throws, and some fresh flowers and your house shows its true colors! Here are a couple of great websites and you can search the web for more. Alternatively, our team is happy to give you some ideas.
