Home staging is all about helping prospective home buyers to feel comfortable in your home, and enabling them to see themselves and their belongings in your home. Most sellers think that all they have to do is remove a few personal items and de-clutter a bit. But staging is far more than just removing items – it’s also about organization.
Washington DC Realtor Michelle Buckman wants you to know that there are some easy and inexpensive ways to organize and stage your Washington DC home to sell.
Here are the most likely "trouble spots" for clutter in your DC home, and what you can do to organize them.
The kitchen: As the heart of the home, the kitchen is a busy place – and it usually shows a good deal of wear. What to do? Make your kitchen into an orderly command center.
The bedroom closet: Closets always look too small, especially to the ladies. What to do? Make your closet appear to be bigger.
The home office: Big libraries with books, magazines, and files as well as big electronics like computers, printers, and shredders mean little extra, useable space. What to do? Make that office appear to be a clean, stress-free, and productive work environment.
The garage: The garage is where clutter piles up, and things are lost. What to do?
The yard: For some busy homeowners, it’s easy to ignore the backyard; however, the outside of a home is reflective of the inside of a home. What to do?
Prospective home buyers will be quick to judge your Washington DC house, both inside and out, for any flaws. Following the above organizing tips could reduce your listing time on the market and help your house fetch more than one not properly staged.
