I say STAGE! We recently sold our home and I decided to stage the rooms myself and take the pictures for the listing. Let me just start off by telling you that I’m not a professional, I’m just a girl that will walk into any room in any home or building and start re arranging and organizing it in my mind. It’s a burden I must bear…however, it did come in handy when preparing our home for the market. Cleaning, de cluttering and optimal furniture placement really does go a long way. We had an offer within the first week of our home being listed by the first people to look at it. Here’s what I know:
Home Staging is a budget friendly way to effectively market your home. The right furniture placement will maximize the size and scope of each room in your home and enhance your home’s best features. Most importantly, the right staging will allow perspective buyers to see themselves in the home.
Use what you have! Enhance your home by reorganizing, and oftentimes repurposing furniture and accessories you already have. By simply rearranging existing furniture and creating welcoming vignettes, your home will be transformed into a beautiful showroom.
