2009: The Year In Review Part 2

December 31st, 2009 · No Comments

What have we learned about home staging from this blog this year?

1) Sponge painting is ugly.  Remove it before any potential buyer sees it.

2) Neutralize bright paint colors & cutesy murals & designs.

4) Remove family photos before selling.

5) Remove refrigerator magnets & other clutter from kitchens.  Buyers like to see clean counters.

6) Remove the knives & ugly pot rack.  No buyer wants to see your dusty old pots & pans.  Knives are dangerous; what if a buyer brought their kids?

7) Either empty out a room completely or arrange the furniture in a pleasing manner.  Consult a professional home stager if you have questions.

8) By all means, please clean the carpet and pick up the animal poop first.  $100 could save you $3,000 (buyers will assume total carpet replacement is necessary and will discount their offer significantly).
