Staging Your Home in the Greater Athens Area

Staging Your Home in the Greater Athens Area

Staging your home isn’t just de-cluttering. Let us show you!

Seller Insights
When you’re ready to sell, staging puts your home’s best foot forward. De-cluttering and de-personalizing common rooms is important to the process, but don’t overlook these factors that will leave lasting impressions on buyers (info and photo via KW):
1. Curb Appeal – Make a lasting first impression on buyers by mowing the lawn, power-washing the driveway and sidewalks, and keeping hedges trimmed.
2. Outdoor Social Areas – Adding comfortable seating and games to front porches or covered patios can highlight outdoor features of the home.
3. Storage Space – Buyers are attracted to homes with great storage space. Organize pantries, walk-in closets and utility rooms, and keep doors to these rooms ajar so that buyers know to look inside.
