Last week we discussed the value of staging your home for sale (check out that blog post out if you haven't already done so!). This week, one of our team's agents, Laura Stratmann discusses what inspires her when she is out staging a home and preparing it for the market:
I have always been interested in home décor and interior design so when I got into real estate staging became natural to me. I love creating beautiful spaces that help the buyer imagine themselves living in the home. Turning a vacant or seller occupied property into a staged home is the most rewarding transformation.
Lighting is very important, along with pops of color added by wall paintings, décor, plants, bedding, and furniture. Now with the majority of folks working from home, I have been creating spaces that could be used as an office. Many buyers are including a home office in their specific criteria now more than ever.
