I've been busy this week! I, the home owner, and my friend (and Realtor) have been staging a home to get ready to go on the market! Here are a few photos from the house. More should be coming soon!
When it comes to home staging--remember you don't have to spend a fortune to make your house look great! Think of the Four Bs--1. Budget--figure out how much money you can afford to spend on cosmetic fixes and upgrades 2. Barter--trade or sell items you will no longer need or are getting rid of during the move to fund staging. 3. Borrow--if you need a pair of chairs or some neutral art or just a few extra lamps--I'm sure you have a friend willing to lend you a few things--even if it is just to take photos. 4. Buy--the last of the four Bs--sometimes you just need to spend a few Bucks--okay so maybe there are 5 Bs. . .Spend that money wisely--in my next few posts on Home Staging, I will reveal a few tips and shortcuts of ways to make your house look its best when you put it on the market!
We Borrowed this lamp and these chairs from Wanda's (the Realtor) foyer!
We bought a few updated accessories (under $20.00 in this room)
We Bargained. . . this slipcover was on sale when I bought it--then the homeowner Borrowed it from me!
Another bargain--these red pillows were an after Christmas clearance! Check back soon for more photos from this amazing house!
