I had a house in Virginia. It was staged to sell and sold in a week.
I loved that house and miss it. But ultimately it was a product that had to be marketed.
Buyers make up their minds whether they like a house or hate it in the first 6 seconds of walking through the door; but so do friends, neighbors, and yes, even you. First impressions are powerful. So are hazy constant impressions that sort of infiltrate your subconscious. Weeds. Clutter. Piles. Dirt. Smell. Cracks. Haphazard “stuff” shoved here and there. Pictures hung crooked. Scale and placement of furniture all wrong. It all works together to make you feel “bad”. Whether it is the product you are trying to sell or the home you are trying to create—details count.
Here are my pictures of my product that was once my home.
