This house had been completely remodeled with grey walls and white trim throughout. The only room not done in this style was the front porch….the first impression room for the whole house. Making it consistent with the rest of the house was imperative! This house sold in just a few days on the market!
The current style for draperies is very simple, free from poofs, swags and embellishments. So if you have are still use tie backs, consider not using them for now and hanging draperies straight down. You may also choose to remove valances and swags and use pretty oil rubbed bronze or nickel rods.
Large open spaces are some of the hardest for buyers to envision how they would lay out their furniture in the space. Staging always helps these types of spaces. If you don’t have the budget to rent furniture, consider using pieces from your own home or borrowing from friends or family!
If you plan to list your home in the winter or very early spring before everything is green, take outdoor photos now while everything is beautiful. Take photos of gardens, outdoor structures, wildlife that frequent your yard and overall views of your house. Twilight photos with all the lights on inside the home also give a great impression. Keep electronic versions of the photos that you can send to your Realtor to use in the marketing.
