All the world’s a Stage part 4- Tip 7 and 8

‘Staging is preparing a home for sale so the buyer can mentally move in”

“Depersonalizing a home has now become essential to creating a welcoming atmosphere for potential buyers’

The internet has changed the way people buy and sell homes and that has made how a home shows more important than ever.

First impressions have always been important and now with U-Tube  videos , internet ads, Facebook , social media   and multiple interior photos on web sites a buyer visits your home  before stepping though the front door. The impression that those photos make are very important and that comes down to what is broadly known as staging.

From cleaning to styling, from fluffing to decluttering, to moving furniture to renting furniture, staging can come in many different forms and levels. Professional stagers and real estate agents can provide you with a number of varied services and advice.

38FirstAv 008Don’t crowd the Room: Rearrange the furniture. Walk through the house as if you were seeing it for the first time. Can you easily move around the rooms? Can you move from room to room without having to go around furniture? Can you get to and look out windows without furniture blocking the access.  Symmetrical arrangements usually work well in main rooms- create a conversation area and remove oversized furniture from the spaces.

Think Hotel: When sprucing up a bathroom stay with neutral with color and accents – for a pop of color, a piece of artwork and a small vase of fresh flowers works well. Bathrooms should be spotless with lots of fresh white towels. This includes the master bedroom which should be gender neutral in color so that it appeals to everyone and again free of personal items. Crisp Linens, a nice piece of art work and organized linen closet will appeal to everyone.
