Are you getting ready to list your 2-bedroom garden-style condo like 2330 14th St N #102 in Arlington Virginia? As a Realtor, I like showing a staged homes, because they often sell in less time. What do professionals think you should do if your dwelling doesn’t fit the mold?

An over-stuffed home might be the reason you’re moving. So you don’t want that to be the reason for a shopper to pass on your property.

Get rid of the floor lamps and table lamps. Unless a lamp is critical for showing the home, it should be prepped for moving day and hidden in your storage.

You can hide a lot of clutter using organization solutions, but in the end boxes, containers and racks are tools that can help, but they aren’t magic. Some stuff will just have to go into storage.

The glass in your windows should almost always be visible. This opens up the home and let’s the buyer see the surroundings.

Are you looking for a budget-friendly DYI upgrade that can move your home fast? Cream or white roman shades are also a good choice. If you want to make them pop, add a dash of color with pretty ribbon trim that can be sewn or glued onto the shade.


What should you do about your paint colors if you’re selling garden-style condo like 2330 14th St N #102? Buyers have access to a lot of information about real estate in Arlington County. And most of the time most of the home buyers will buy the best home for the money.
