NH Home Staging Tip - Turn Your Hidden Spaces Into Hidden Gems

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Real Estate Roseville CA CalBRE#01966207

With a picture worth 1000 words, that makes this post by New Hampshire Home Stager, Sharon Tara, worth about Eleven Thousand words!  And excellent words, at that. As she so wisely writes and illustrates, be sure that when you are preparing your home for sale, to clean and weed and declutter your kitchen cupboards, along with your closets, drawers, and even your refrigerator! Studies show that buyers look at ALL of those areas and that sales have been lost on occasion - solely due to a buyer not liking how crowded a kitchen cupboard was or how messy a refrigerator was. It may seem silly, but when you are trying to sell your home quickly, it's well worth doing!!!!

P.S. And if you are getting ready to sell your home and are looking for help, do give me a buzz. Particularly if you are in the Pierce County area of the state of Washington. I'd love to help you with all your real estate needs! 657-229-5293 or Kaye@KayeSwain.com

If you are preparing your New Hampshire home for sale, there is one simple step you can take that will increase it's perceived value and set it apart from the competition.  It shouldn't cost you any money or take that much time.

Most sellers understand the importance of cleaning and organizing each room before listing their house for sale.  What most sellers don't understand is the importance of cleaning and organizing the hidden areas of their house.  

It's the closets, cabinets, and drawers that can sometimes make the biggest impression on potential buyers.   When these areas are neat, clean and organized it sends a message that the sellers are meticulous and the home has been well maintained.  

While touring homes, potential buyers will see pretty much the same condition in most kitchen cabinets....

Organized cabinets impress buyers and make your home stand out from the competition.

It doesn't take much to turn your hidden spaces into hidden gems.  Start by removing what you can....the items you don't use daily.  Organize and sort....cans together, boxes side by side,  gather all small items in a container.  Face all labels forward.

Here are some Before & After examples...

Kaye, thanks for sharing and reblogging this information. I would tend to agree that organized cabinets and pantry's would make your home stand out. It would also make any potential buyer feel that you have really taken care of the home, as long as the rest of the home was kept as nice as well.
