Professional Stagers have a saying: The way people dwell in a home is not the way they sell a home.
Usually people have too much stuff & part of a Stager's in home consultation is dealing compassionately with how, why & what to declutter to make a home a marketable product.
Making a home marketable means: every room has a purpose so buyers don't have to guess, & using the appropriate decor to target the buyers in that area.
Using the existing items an owner has is always helpful to their budget.
But once in a while we come across a homeowner who doesn't have too much; they have too little. (or some don't have useable items due to age or wear).
Most Stagers will rent furniture, art & accessories to a seller so a home not only looks lived in, but sells a lifestyle.
Then the only thing left to happen is; buyers falling in love with a home, because they connect emotionally & can picture themselves living there!
The possiblities are endless!
