Staging and Fresh Flowers?
I hope we get to put our house on the market this spring and I am just trying to think ahead.
I have heard, mostly on HGTV, that fresh flowers are so important when staging for the house showing, but I can see a small fortune if I have go to out and buy fresh flowers everytime someone wants to see the house...or are good quality silks okay to use?
For those of you who have had the good fortune to sell your house in this down market, what did you do? My DH's old recliner finally "bit the dust", and oh my, he is having a hard time doing without it, but it takes up so much space, I know we need to pare down some to make the room look larger.
I am still battling to do, or not to do, the replacing of all of the shiny brass in this house...some say yes, some say not to bother. I did take it out of my kitchen however, and think I will replace the switch plates with just plain old white, although we have stained woodwork...yea or nay? Our brass is very good quality and looks as good as it day when we built this house 9 years ago....so it is not spotted or blotchy.
Same with repainting.....I know most like "neutral", but this house has color. A realtor said not to paint because the next person probably wouldn't want whatever color I paint anyway.
Anything more you can add, is more than appreciated...it is going to hard to sell in our area.....too many homes and not enough buyers who have the money to do so. We live in a "military town", and not much need for up-graded houses here.
Thanks in advance.
