Staging Your Home Like A Pro

Follow these five professional tips to make your space more functional and enjoyable to live in – whether you’re selling it or staying put.

 

  1. Clean and de-clutter – A clean house speaks volumes and gives the impression it’s usually clean. So crank up Pandora, find your favorite station and get to cleaning!
  2. Light It Up – For a warm glow, aim for 100 watts per 50 square feet. Open those windows and showcase the natural light too!
  3. Refresh your palette – Updating paint colors to meet current trends and is great (and cost effective) way to change the overall look of your home. Just be sure the new color coordinates with existing features.
  4. Curb Appeal Matters – First impressions are so important! Simple things such as power washing your home, pulling weeds, adding flowers, or even trimming the shrubs make a huge difference visually.
  5. Do a scent check – Do you smell that? Just because you love Yankee candles newest fragrance doesn’t mean a potential buyer won’t be overwhelmed by the smell. Choosing a “clean” scent is best if you need to use an air freshener.

Fall Home Maintenance List

Here’s your to-do list:
Drain underground sprinkler systems.

Have outdoor pools drained and professionally serviced.

Drain exterior water pipes and any pipes that run through unheated areas (such as a garage, crawl space or unheated porch). If draining these pipes isn’t possible, wrap them with foam insulation or heat tape.

Cover exposed spigots with foam covers. Or, if cosmetics and ease of removal don’t matter, wrap spigots in layers of newspaper, cover the newspaper with a plastic bag, and seal the whole affair with duct tape.

Drain and store garden hoses. Leave one hose and nozzle somewhere that’s easily accessible; you’ll need it for gutter cleaning and car washing.
