One of the biggest trends in real estate is “house staging,” which involves getting rid of clutter and arranging a home’s existing furniture in an attractive manner. Prospective buyers do not like to see too many of the seller’s personal items, which block their vision of how they might make the house their own. Thus, sellers are encouraged to get rid of unnecessary items and leave only the essentials behind, which can be arranged to showcase the home’s space and architectural features. To this end, it is often a good idea to rid the living room of personal photo collections. A professional house stager can provide the vision needed to see your home through a buyer’s eyes.
HINT: House staging involves four general steps: decluttering, repairing, cleaning, and revitalizing.
