Interior Design Experience Merged with Real Estate Today

Most people when buying a home want a home with little to repair or replace.  They want it “move in ready” .  As a designer and Realtor I appreciate that, a lot goes into a home to make it “move in ready”.

Did you know well-placed furniture can open up rooms and make them seem larger than they are? Or, that opening drapes and blinds and turning on lights make a room seem bright and cheery? It’s true, which is why staging your home to look its absolute best is an important factor in the selling process.

More expensive ways that can sell a home:

  1. replace dated plumbing and light fixtures
  2. try to have fewer floor transitions
  3. replace old appliances
  4. inviting landscape with flowers
  5. cut or trim any trees or shrubs that or against the house
  6. pressure wash house and driveway

Here are some inexpensive ways to highlight your home’s best features:

  1. > Clean or paint walls and ceilings.
  2. > Clean all flooring and fixtures – lights, fans.
  3. > Repair all plumbing leaks.
  4. > Remove excessive wall hangings, furniture and extra personal goods.
  5. > Turn on all lights and open the drapes during the daytime.
  6. > Play quiet background music and infuse your home with a comforting scent.
  7. > Vacate the property when and if it’s being show to prospective buyers.
