If you are putting your home on the market, you want it to be appealing to potential buyers. Staging a small space can be a challenge. These tips will help.
The last thing you want to do is make a small room seem even smaller with the “wrong” furniture, arrangements and accessories.

8 Most Expensive Mistakes Sellers Make
I have seen many of these mistakes in my experience and want to send a word of caution to you. These mistakes are Common and Costly!
1. Putting your house on the market before it’s ready. When you put your home on the market, you should have already completed the cleaning, painting, curb appeal, carpet or other small improvements to your home. Don’t do these things AFTER you put it on the market. This only creates chaos.
2. Not knowing your numbers before you list. Don’t wait until after you have listed your home to … (10 comments)
