THREE STAGING MISTAKES OWNERS MAKE!
#1 MISTAKE IS SIMPLY HAVING TOO MUCH STUFF IN THE HOUSE!
EVEN USEFUL STUFF IS STILL STUFF, EVEN EXPENSIVE STUFF IS STILL STUFF!
STUFF GETS IN THE WAY OF SPACE. THE ONLY THING THAT WILL MAKE A SELLER MORE MONEY IS TO SHOW THE BUYER MORE SPACE AND LOTS OF IT!
MOST HOMEOWNERS SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH ABOUT 1/3 MORE STUFF THAN THEY ACTUALLY EVER USE. STUFF IS LITTLE ITEMS, BIG ITEMS, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.
FOR STAGING TAKE AWAY 1/3 TO 1/2 OF FURNISHINGS IN THE HOUSE. I HEAR YOU GASPING NOW!
#2 STAGING MISTAKE IS THE HOUSE LOOKS OUTDATED.
I didn't say you were outdated. It is simply things that are outdated. House Furnishings color and pattern change from year to year.
#3 STAGING MISTAKE IS KEEPING ROOMS TOO DARK.
Dark comes in paint colors, heavy curtains, no lamps.
Buyers who can't see won't remember anything other than some dark rooms.
