It's been said that staging your home is like entering a beauty contest you want to win. You need to spotlight the home's best features and finesse everything else. You are going for positive first impressions because buyers often decide within the first two minutes!
Despite what we tell ourselves, buying a home is usually governed by how buyers feel from the moment they see the outside of the house.
Therefore, we need to evoke feelings of welcome, make the house inviting, and roomy enough for buyers to imagine their things in the space. Sometimes all it takes is deep cleaning,a coat of fresh paint to cover up wear and tear, and packing up excess furnishings, smaller decor and personal photos.Clutter eats equity. Edit those belongings until you've left only the best and classiest.
By the time you're done you should feel like you are living in an upscale hotel. As hard as it is, try to look at your home as a product, and make it as perfect as you can afford to.
