"More and more homeowners are finding that if spending the money on a professional stager is not in the budget, they can make their home show better and appear more enticing online by using pop-up furniture"
So you want to be an interior home stager? You LOVE watching Joanna Gains stage her fixer uppers, you buy every design magazine and sit for hours flipping through the pages, and you follow The Real Houses Of IG and every other amazing design feed on Instagram. Home staging is such a hot industry these days.
Whether you're listing your condo for sale in Miami, FL, or looking for a buyer for your home for sale in Chicago, IL, the easiest way to find what needs a little attention is to "put your buyer's hat on and walk through your home like it is the first time."
If you are one of those households on the move this National Moving Month, there is no reason to panic. Unlike the popular perception, it doesn't need to be a stressful and overwhelming process. With a bit of planning, the to-dos of moving are very manageable.
If, like me, you find that you must sell a beloved home, who better to turn to for advice than the Renaissance real estate mogul William Shakespeare, whose cornering of the 17th-century Stratford-upon-Avon housing market is as impressive to realty buffs as his genius as a wordsmith is to literary types.
Your potential buyer doesn't want to feel or see you in the house. No family pictures, tastes or piles of stuff. A buyer wants to be able to envision living in that house. Think: It's not your house anymore. It's a house that will soon be their house. So get the YOU out of your house.
I don't care how well designed or clean your home is, everyone needs to stage their home to sell it efficiently, and you do not need to spend any money to stage your home. Time, yes! Money, no! The right approach is simply a change in mindset.
It's just like Where's Waldo.
