Isn't there something cold about an empty house? If you think so, your potential buyer, likely does as well. Your home could be painted impeccably and meet every possible standard a family has and yet feel cold and anything but homey to the prospective buyer. The best way to avoid the 'chill' of an empty home, and increase chances of selling, is to hire a home staging professional. 

As you might guess, the key areas in your home;  the living room, dining room, master bedroom, and bathrooms are all rooms that will essentially 'sell' your home. A beautifully decorated home, especially one that's minimal, and light of personal objects will attract potential buyers much more quickly. Staging doesn't have to require renting expensive furniture, and going to great expense to bring in trendy pieces. In most cases you can use your own furniture, and enlist the assistance of a home stager to give you some suggestions on how best to arrange existing furniture, wall hangings and decorative fixtures to best represent your home. A fresh set of eyes, is the best thing you can do for your home! You want to have an objective eye that can help you de-personalize your home, and allow the potential buyer to imagine their furniture in your home, and leave room for their imagination to see how they can make your home, theirs. 

An industry professional can lend advice not just regarding interior decorative, paint and furniture suggestions, but can also have helpful tips on exterior areas, like entry ways, decks and porches, and curb appeal. A well kept lot is the appetizer for a new buyer the moment they arrive at your home. 

At the Shields Team of Keller Williams Realty, we offer the services of a professional home stager to consult with you on the first walk through of your home. This service has proven invaluable to so many of the homes we've sold, and we would love to help you have the same positive experience when selling your home.
