home staging connecticut: Home Staging In Connecticut: Why Use A Disclaimer? Stage It! - 04/21/13 10:21 AM
Home Staging In Connecticut: Why Use A Disclaimer? Stage It! This disclaimer was in a recent MLS property description: "Formal Dining Room currently being used as a play room." And, yes, there was a listing photo of that room. It was chock-full of toys. Why use a disclaimer and risk loosing a quick sale? Don't use words to explain what that room is - show it! Clear out the toys. (This would be a great opportunity to sort, pack, and donate!) Set up the space as a true Dining Room.
Pack up the toys!

One of the best ways to prepare a house for today's market is to be sure there's plenty of light, both artificial and natural.

The house, and their decor, had a Mid-century flair, so we (13 comments)

Connecticut Home Staging: Listed on the 30th, Full Price Offer by the 5th! Imagine my surprise and delight when I got this email from an Agent I recently started working with: "ON DEPOSIT FULL PRICE OFFER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" How did it sell so quickly? The three factors that made it happen are: a smart Agent, Lynn Gayda of Coldwell Banker in Oxford, CT, a smart price, and smart presentation.
