Real Estate Staging by The Liberty Cottage

 
Staging your home to sell is so important in this real estate market today. It’s a buyers market & sellers need to do all they can to show their home to its full potential. Staging makes the most out of what the home has to offer, and leaves potential buyers with a feeling of excitement when considering living out their lives in their new home.  These are some simple inexpensive tips of advice when staging your home.
Check out some staging pictures of projects from the Liberty Cottage.

 Living room before & after staging
 
The easiest most important staging tips are very inexpensive & easy to do.
First, most important is to clean and remove all the clutter from your rooms.  Depersonalize your space so others can see themselves living there.  
 
Second, refresh the floor plan only have necessary furniture. You want your home to be as open as possible, and to have a functional floor plan. 
 
Third, open up the curtains let all the light in possible.  You want your home to be as light & bright as it can be!  *See the diagram below for curtain rod placement on windows.  
 
Fourth, showcase your homes most beautiful features! Whether it is beautiful wood floors or gorgeous windows! Show off the positive features & downplay the negative.
 
Fifth, paint is an inexpensive quick fix to any room.  Just keep it neutral, a sandy beige is always a great choice! 
 
*As you can see in the diagram below; the curtain panels should be mounted close the the ceiling and covering as little of the window as possible.  Same size window but WOW, look how much bigger the one of the right looks! Adding more light into your rooms, illusion of a larger window & higher ceiling!

Getting back to school, having a schedule, and getting back on track!  I would enjoy having the house to myself, and getting it organized once again!  Getting into my kids rooms and cleaning them up was a necessary.These are some awesome bunk rooms, my kids would of loved to have one of these! What do you think?
