A common part of the downsizing process includes preparing an existing home for sale and placing it on the market. According to the National Association of Realtors®, home staging is a valuable tool for sellers who wish to sell their home quickly while increasing its overall value.
In this exciting video – one in series available from Upside of Downsizing® –Ruth Chancellor, an interior designer/home stager and owner of Chancellor Designs, offers viewers an in-depth look at how home staging can help make their home more attractive to buyers. They do this by placing the right amount of furnishings in appropriate rooms to help the home look warm and inviting to prospective buyers.
In her presentation, Chancellor addresses the three mistakes commonly made during the selling process: trying to sell an empty house, trying to sell a house with too few items or trying to sell a house with too many things. She walks viewers through each of these scenarios, explains the impact they can have on a home’s selling potential and offers solutions.
