Home Staging – Simplify your home to Sell

I recently completed a home staging consultation on a fabulous lake front property. This home has been the family cottage for forty years and has been loved by all members of the extended family. The homeowners have decided to simplify their life and are very motivated to sell.

I was asked to provide my recommendations and the owners completed the changes. Family members were recruited to help complete all items that I provided in my report. They worked quickly. The home was listed for $1.195 million ten days after my consultation.

The home has been renovated and enlarged over the years and the living space is very generous and wonderful. The interior has been painted recently and looks terrific. The main living room is a very spacious and 30 feet long. The furniture placement and collections have been designed by the family to make the large space feel cozy.










When selling your home first impressions count. Potential buyers will view your home in minutes and decide to make an offer or not. Buyers need to be able to see themselves living in the home. You must highlight your home’s best features. You want buyers to see the space and possibilities for them.

My recommendations were for the homeowners to pare down their furnishings and collections in this main living area. Personal photos, floral arrangements, furniture and small area carpets were removed.

The result is the space is more open and potential buyers are not distracted by too many items. The best features, a large living space, beautiful pine floors throughout, the stone fireplace and incredible views are all shown to full advantage.
