Sell You Home Fast - Staging Your Home For Buyers

Staging your home for buyers is important if you want to sell your home faster. You have to look at it like it's already no longer your own.

Imagine, if you were to walk into your home as a potential buyer there are a few things you wouldn't want to see.

Clutter on the floor, in the closet, on the tables. Get organized, get rid of it. We get used to, and even immune, to seeing clutter in our own homes and tend to ignore it. Potential buyers will rest their eye on the clutter and not be able to see beyond it.

Disrepair. If any of your home improvements are left unfinished, finish them!
Complete the painting on the wall in the mudroom. Fix the leaky faucet in the kitchen.
Tighten the door knob to the bathroom.
Get the crayon off the wall in the kids room.
Buyers see this as irresponsible and will perceive it as a home with hidden issues.

Personal items of the homeowner. The new buyer needs visual space to imagine their own family pictures on the wall or their own clothes in a closet. You do however, need to make it feel warm and comfortable.

Strike a balance here by adding accessories that welcome visitors without making a personal statement.

Pack out of season clothes away and let the buyers imagine their wardrobe fitting into the closets and storage areas.

Spring Delivery-Beautiful Spring Flowers

Spring delivery may mean a baby to some but to others the infant is in their gardens, in the form of a bulb. 






Tulipsdaffodils, and hyacinths all are precursors to spring. 


Tulips are perennials that grow from bulbs. Multi colored, available in multi species, and have heights ranging from 4 inches to 28 inches. 


Daffodils are perennials, also known as Narcissus, that bloom in the spring in typical Easter/Spring colors but also can be seen in shades of orange, pink, red and green. 


Hyacinths can range from 6-12 inches tall. This compact bulb comes in all the spring flowers we associate with the season. 
                                                                                                                                         Image by:roberto verzo

Prolong the life of your plantings by purchasing plants with tightly closed buds.
The buds will open in a few days and color your container for two or more weeks.


After a long winter of being cooped up inside, spring is the time to open the windows and air the house out. 


Beautiful Spring Flowers are the perfect accompaniment to any decor to represent a fresh look and feel. It feels like your bringing a little sunshine inside. Once the blooms die off you can add them to your bulb gardens. 


The nice thing about bulbs is they multiply after the first year or so. You can then divide and share with your family and friends  as well as spread them around your own yards and gardens,
