6 Tips for Staging Historic Homes #homestaging #stagingsells

I am forever telling my homeowners to maintain the character of their period home. If a buyer is interested in a century home, while they will likely be looking to ensure that the major updates have been done (electrical, plumbing, etc), they will appreciate the quirks of the old home, provided that imperfections aren't due to neglect but instead are simply a part of the home's charm. This is a great article with tips for how to stage an older home to appeal to these interested buyers:

Trying to sell a vacant house?


Listing and showing an empty home is not in the seller's best interest. It's important to make the best impression the first time, which means adding furniture and decor to all vacant rooms in the home you're selling!

This article outlines what sellers will often think when they see an empty home - the seller appears to be in a desperate situation because they are showing it vacant, which in turn means they can "low ball" the offer they put in on the property.

See why it is best to stage a vacant home before listing it for sale...
