6 Can’t-Miss Staging Solutions
Step up curb appeal.
You’ve heard of first impressions making lasting impressions. This is the same for houses. In fact, many people judge a home by the outside first before even stepping foot inside. Make sure your home is ready to lure in onlookers with these staging solutions:
- Plant bright, beautiful flowers and fresh greenery
- Make sure the lawn is mowed and looks green
- Wash the front windows
- Power wash siding and walkways
Make the master bedroom appeal to both sexes.
You want the master bedroom—and any room for that matter—to not be too gender-specific. The walls should be painted a neutral color and then accessorize with items that compliment that overall color scheme.
