Are you looking for specialist clues for you to list a 4-bedroom Colonial, Contemporary-style end unit townhouse much the same as 421 N Columbus St in 22314 in the City of Alexandria? One reason sellers like to stage their end unit townhouse is because staged homes usually sell faster and for more money. What do professionals think you should do to make your end unit townhouse look as attractive as possible to home hunters?

You already know the less clutter in your home, the larger the home will look and feel to potential buyer clients.

Remove anything that requires an opinion. What does that mean? Anything that people either love or hate, probably should be crated and prepared for moving day.

You can hide a lot of clutter using organization solutions, but in the end boxes, containers and racks are tools that can help, but they aren’t magic. Some stuff will just have to go into storage.

In addition to removing your clutter, it’s almost always a good idea to depersonalize.

Your home is a personal statement about who you are. But when you put your home on the market, it’s no longer your home. It’s a product for sale.

It’s time to sell. That means it’s time to erase your personal touches.

It’s about time to list your property. Does that mean it’s time to take into account advertised for sale your interior color scheme?

Some may say that painting every single room the same color is an artistic cop-out. But when you’re selling your home, especially in a smaller property, a simple color scheme can help the buyer focus on the property rather than your design choices.

Soft whites, plaster gray, and very subtle colors can make the walls recede from the eye and make your home a blank canvass for the next owner. “Greige,” a pale gray with a beige undertone, is one of the most versatile colors for staging. This pale taupe is a cool, sophisticated hue that can elegantly complement most furnishings.

  1. Consider power washing your exterior before you put your home on the market.
  2. Unless you have an unlimited budget of money and time (and none of us do) focus your energy on key areas. Bathrooms and kitchens usually return the best bang for the buck.
