Is it about time for you to sell real estate like this $749,900 house? A house that isn’t staged may sell if properly prices. On the other hand, a staged house will sell faster and for more money. What should you do if your home is trendy and updated?

Take a look at these pictures from 9175 Rosemary Lena Way and think critically about your own home. The consumer will always pick the best value for the price . . . especially if the price tag is around $749,900.

Remove anything that requires an opinion. What does that mean? Anything that people either love or hate, probably should be crated and prepared for moving day.

The space in your closet above your clothes rack is usually wasted. You can put this space to work with easy-to-install pull-down rods. Install the rod anywhere near the ceiling and substantially increase the usable room in your closet.

Have you thought about your window treatments?

If you ask me, I’ll always say that it’s better to have bare windows rather than the wrong window treatments. You may have forgotten that some windows and views in your home are so beautiful that they are diminished by most any embellishment.

You’re considering selling in Fairfax County. Is it time to paint?

Paint is a pretty easy change to make. And, the wrong color inside or out can turn a buyer off from the entire house. On the other hand, the wrong color is relatively easy to correct.

Some may say that painting every single room the same color is an artistic cop-out. But when you’re selling your home, especially in a smaller property, a simple color scheme can help the buyer focus on the property rather than your design choices.

If you’ve loved your home, one of the most difficult chores you’ll face is the task of de-personalization.

When you buy a home the first thing you’ll want to do is personalize it. When you sell a home in Fairfax County, the first thing you’ll want to do is de-personalize it.

In addition to removing your clutter, it’s almost always a good idea to depersonalize.

Consider these ideas:

  • Replace dark furnishings with glass or metal furnishings. Dark antique woods are beautiful but glass is see-through and creates a more open feel.
  • Arrange furniture to maximize floor space but to create conversation zones where a buyer can imagine chatting with friends or family.
  • Buyers will be impressed if the laundry room is fresh, inviting, and organized. Make sure light bulbs are working, and hide soaps in a cupboard or line them neatly on a shelf.
  • Use mirrors to create more space. Full-length mirrors, framed mirrors, mounted mirrors can help make a room look brighter and feel bigger.
