I was just browsing some reading material for real estate nerds, and ran across this article about staging your house to sell (link to article below). There’s some great stuff in here. I especially like the part about having a clean house, stowing clutter, and adding color. New doormats, mowed and edged yards, fresh fruit – all these are on our list of ‘musts’ that anyone can do themselves.
But it’s a little harder to know how to properly arrange furniture or choose colors. That’s why we hire a professional stager to consult with us on all of our listings. She knows exactly what color towels to use to make your bathroom look like a spa. And furniture arrangement is one of the hardest things to get right that a stager does so well. Staging is surely worth the hassle. It can trasnform a pound puppy into a show dog, earning our clients thousands of dollars in return. -JWR
