As you most likely know, Stagedhomes.com works closely with media outlets – television, radio, newspapers, magazines, bloggers, podcasters and many more – and we are often asked to contribute stories.
We are frequently asked to provide clever ideas and tips, as well as anecdotal stories, about how you as Home Stager and/or REALTOR® made one important tweak to a house that helped it sell. Stories that need to go beyond general tips people already know, truly unique personal staging stories.
Here’s an example: Most people are right handed so they walk into a house and look to the right first and they veer to the right first. If there’s something really ugly to the right like a wall heater that you can’t put a piece of art on, then you hit the left so hard with something beautiful that makes them turn to the left instead and they totally avoid seeing what was on the right.
Think about topics such as
- furniture placement
- what kinds of accessories to add (maybe rolled-up towels in the bathroom or candles and how to group/arrange them)
- turning a dead space into something appealing to home buyers
- lighting tricks
- how to make spaces feel bigger
- using paint to spruce up a space
- displaying art
- adding flowers
- making your kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms look their best
- perking up outdoor spaces
