Spring appears to be here! And with spring comes prime selling season. People like to move in the late spring / early summer for several reasons. First of all, the weather is mild. Secondly, if moving across school district lines, families with children like to move during summer break so that their kids’ lives will be disrupted as little as possible.
So on this beautiful Saturday, I have the desire to go outside and begin my annual spring clean up, in preparation for all of the gardening to come. As well, I am preparing my own home for sale, so now is the time to get stuff done.
As a professional home stager, I am often asked by my clients how to stage the outside of a house. And my answer is not quite so simple. I always begin with “First impressions count!” and curb appeal cannot be underestimated. After all, if a potential buyer is turned off to your house by the outside, they will not be impressed with the inside, no matter how perfect your house is!
