Love this tip. Light is psychological too. A light, bright room is so much more appealing. Even realtors who see homes all the time get a lift from a well lit, cheery room. I'm a green realtor. I hate wasting energy. But when you sell, leave all the lights on!
Bring in the light. "Light sells," says Osborne. Unless you have a really bad view, let your windows breathe, Osborne says. Get rid of the curtainsand drapes, and open the sheers. In addition to natural light, make sure that every room has three sources of artificial light, not including overhead fixtures, says Osborne; you'll help cast out shadows and accentuate welcomed attributes.
