It's time to sell your home, so ask yourself does your property live up to its true earning potential or is it missing the mark? Whether you are currently living in the home you are selling or if it's vacant, there are simple yet effective improvements you can do now to show your property in the best way to potential buyers. Major overhauls are not necessary, but knowing what changes to make are important to ensure that you hit the right mark.
If you are not sure where to start or when to stop the home improvements, it's a good idea to have your home evaluated by a professional to avoid the investment of time and money on things that will not directly impact the sale of the property. An experienced home staging professional can provide specific guidelines, in order of priority for you to follow to avoid unnecessary costs. Below are some examples of before and after photos, from Triangle Staging & Design, where simple changes make dramatic differences.
Removing the dated blue blinds, painting the kitchen a warm ivory color to show off the trim work, updating the appliances and adding a microwave helped this kitchen leave the dark ages behind for something more up-to-date. This property was on the market for 12 days before going under contract.
Of course kitchens, bathrooms usually receive the most attention when it comes to updates, but don't forget the importance of staging the rest of the house as well. Below are examples of Before and Afters of rooms that with a lot of hard work, packing and re-arraning furniture the rooms now show off all the features, while using what the homeowner had in the home. It proves you don't have to spend money on a room to get an updated fresh new look. These homeowner's hired Triangle Staging & Design for a consultation service and they were given a road map to follow to make changes for each room of the house using what the already had and changing a few paint colors to complete the transformation.

Every home has great potential and professional staging can help uncover the hidden potential that most buyers can't see. Staging does not have to be expensive or require serious updates. In fact, the cost of staging would be cheaper than most price reduction and carrying costs from languishing on the market.
