I know I talk about staging a lot, and if you're about to sell, you might think, "this sounds expensive."
If I think we need to bring in a professional stager, I will tell you honestly. But, most of the time, staging costs very little (if anything!). Here are a few of my favorite "on the fly" staging tips:
Bring your furniture off the walls -- this is a trick to make rooms look bigger and more spacious, even if it's just a few feet.
Create mini "vignettes" throughout your home and stage end tables, nightstands, or empty surfaces with plants, fresh flowers, frames, and other decorative accents.
Freshen up baseboards, moldings, and trim with white paint.
Set the dinner table as though you were about to have a dinner party. It can help buyers easily imagine their gatherings around the table.
Pro tip: since we're all staying home more, I highly recommend trying some of these tips even if you aren't selling! Fresh flowers go a long way in brightening up a room and your mood!
