Dinna shares her tips and experiences with staging homes that: 1 - appeal to buyers and 2 - really help potential buyers envision themselves feeling at-home in your home. Topics we cover: How is staging different than design? How can I help potential buyers envision living in my home? How much editing does your home design need when it is on the market? Should I stage my home in the style I would personally be looking for as a buyer? How can I optimize the great features of my home? How can I make my home look and feel bigger? How do you stage your home and still continue your lifestyle, especially with kids? How many holiday decorations can I have when my home is on the market? Thanks for listening in and we hope this episode has helped you get some good ideas for staging your home to sell fast!
