Keep the Staging Up-To-Date - Buyers Expect to be WOWED!

Over the past few years, I have collected a shelf of books on home staging and home decorating. 

Today, I was perusing a book on home staging written in 2004. The after photos were nicely staged and clean and clutter free, but  the burgandy colored pillows and print bedspreads made me think how dated this master bedroom is.   In fact all the printed bedspreads I saw made me want to gag.   Like wallpaper, printed bedding can be so personal!  Today, floral printed bedspreads just don't make the nice, neutral modern buyer look you want in the Master bedroom.  

Just like the clothes fashions, home decor changes from year to year.  What is in vogue one year can become fuddy duddy in a year or two.  You need a professional home stager to keep it up-to-date.  

The classic examples areavocado green appliances and harvest gold appliances, which at one time were in vogue but probably never again not at least in my lifetime!

A good reason to get a professional staging consultatio is because the home stager is an expert in what buyers think is UP-TO-DATE.

  As a home seller (and I've been one) objective perspective is hard to come by.  A professional home stager gives you an outside eye of your home and will recommend what colors and accessories that will appeal to buyers NOW.  

 We get used to where we live and don't see our surroundings as others do.  It's not uncommon for folks to enter through the garage every day and never actually see their own front door as it appears to others walking up for the first time.   That explains how a front entrance door can get dusty,  and have  cobwebs hanging from the front porch.

For Maximum Buyer Appeal, call for a professional home staging consultation to make sure your home is UP-TO-DATE.  CALL Beverly at 325-721-2429

Correct Home staging is great. I had one New home and we could not get an offer. The living room appeared small but it really was not. Had it staged and had 3 offers in a week and it was sold.
