Staging is the curb appeal of the inside of your Bedford, Lynchburg, or Roanoke VA home.
Make your Bedford house “Q-Tip Clean.” Remember, people will look behind closet and crawlspace doors, just as they will to the bedrooms and bathrooms. So get rid of all the clutter; have that garage sale, put it on Craigslist, donate it and haul it away.
After you’ve cleaned, try to correct any cosmetic flaws you’ve noticed. Paint rooms that need it, regrout tile walls and floors, remove or replace any worn-out carpets. Replace dated faucets, light fixtures, and the handles and knobs on your kitchen drawers and cabinets. Little details make a big difference and give the room a feel of maintenance that buyers like; buyers want a home that has been well maintained.
Finally, try to make it easy for prospective buyers to imagine your house as their home. Clear as much from your walls, shelves, and countertops as you can. Give your prospects plenty of room to dream.
Your home’s appearance plays a big part in a buyer’s perception of its value.
