Now You See It, Now You Don’t
In the early days of my career, agents rarely staged a home. Now they do, and after touring hundreds of homes here’s something I’ve learned: Don’t trust your eyes.
Stagers are gifted in bringing out the best in a home and downplaying any flaws.
In a small home, for example, you might not notice that the chest of drawers in the bedroom and the T.V. in the living room are missing.
Why? Because adding those pieces add clutter and make a room look smaller.
Well-placed mirrors, too, add an impression of space to small rooms.
Stagers don’t just sell homes, they sell idealized lifestyles, so after you take a look at any staged home for sale, don’t be fooled. If an entertainment area and good clothes storage are important to you, make sure the home you have your eye on will accommodate them.
If you’re looking to buy or sell an East Bay home, I can help.
