JUST A LITTLE STAGING AND IT'S SOLD!
A little while back, a Realtor Friend asked, Can you do a little staging something for me? Of course I could and I took a package of decor items out to the house to dress the fireplace, for some enhancement of the dining/kitchen area, and some bath decor. The fireplace is the main event in this modest 3 bedroom 2 bath.
The house closes next week, so from a staging point of view, it must have worked!
BEFORE STAGING - THE "PLAIN JANE" FIREPLACE
AFTER STAGING! MUCH MORE APPEALING - EXACT SAME FIREPLACE!
Now that it is supposed to be cooler weather next week, I would take the green stuff off the hearth and put a container of logs perhaps to ground the hearth. A staging tip is to place 3 logs on the grate inside the fireplace opening to be ready for the next fire.
