Home Staging Tips

Friday, May 11, 2012 and I was meeting with a home owner to discuss staging her home for resale. Her home is absolutely lovely, in a desperate reach to find something wrong I suggested that she refold the towels in her linen closet so they would be tidy when you opened the door. "When buyers open doors," I said, "and they find towels folded, precisely, just so, when they open closets and they find clothes hung on identical hangers, just so, they feel like they're buying from a persnickety homeowner and they trust that the meticulous attention to detail carries over into everything, mechanical, and maintenance, and usually it does."

In an effort to help her with some staging tips, and this sort of seller needs no help, the house is immaculate, I dug around online and found this absolutely brilliant offering with a share button. Thank you twice Julea, once for writing the piece and again for sharing it.
