If a real estate agent loves your place, the agent will want to show it to clients. So, when you stage your pied-a-terre, chances are that real estate agents will send you more buyer clients. What steps can you take now to give your residence that little extra “pop”?

It’s no secret that a home that is stuffed with personal chattels is a home that will be harder to sell.

I can help you to throw a reverse housewarming party! We’ll get rid of unwanted items before your first open house by letting friends, family, neighbors and interested parties help you put the home in order.

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.

When you’re selling your pied-a-terre in Alexandria, should you need to paint your home?

Because we also do a lot of property management, I can recommend several painters in Fairfax County for you to price out a paint job.

Vibrant colors, patterns and vibrant colors usually don’t work well for home sellers in Fairfax County. Wallpaper can be very risky as well.

When you decide to sell, you have to think seriously about removing some of your personal indulgences.

The more your house looks like your home, the less it’s someone else’s home. You want the buyer to be able to see the property as his or her home.

What do stagers mean by depersonalizing to your home to sell it?

What do you do with windows and doors?

Of course, when we stage a home in Fairfax County, we always want to maximize the natural light in every room. If a particular room has a truly awful view that you are trying to hide, it still may be advisable to open your blinds and curtains to let more natural light into a living space.

Dream about these ideas:

  • Dried flowers and candles in complementary colors are an inexpensive way to add interest in a nondescript bathroom.
  • How about writing a one-page letter detailing non-so-obvious benefits you’ve enjoyed while living at your home. I’ll print it on some fancy paper or put it on our website.
  • A musty odor will definitely hinder the saleability of a property. If you have a musty area in the home, add a dehumidifier.
