Too Much Clutter Hides Room’s Purpose

family room before stagingNot everyone lives in a home the way they would like others to see it when it’s time to sell. My clients realize that in order to sell their homes more quickly and for more money they have to turn it into a product that will appeal to potential buyers.

In this house the family room had become a dumping ground for clutter that ranged from video games to kid’s toys and a myriad of family photos of all shapes and sizes crowding the fireplace mantel. Fine for living but not for selling!

staging by Six ElementsTo showcase how the room could be used as an eat in area, I brought in rental furniture and removed all the personal clutter that was distracting and made the area feel crowded. While the after shot would be a bit sparse for living, it does allow a buyer to take in the room without distracting them with details.

The Results

This home sold for $21,000 over asking within days.
