My house was fully staged and on the market for three weeks. It had 12 viewings. On the 22nd day, we had two offers slightly above asking price. The staging of the house was definitely a factor in getting those offers so I will continue to add a few posts on how we did it (while keeping my fingers crossed that closing goes smoothly)….
While we worked to make each room uncluttered and inviting, I worked to make each closet uncluttered and spacious looking. “No lack of storage in this house!” they were to proclaim.
Now, I am embarrassed to show you some of these before pictures but face it, you have closets like these in your house too! It is just so easy when tidying to toss items without a home behind the closed closet doors.
I dug in and sorted items in each closet into things to trash, things to donate, things to pack away and things to continue to display in that closet. Here are the results:
THE MASTER BEDROOM
But after some careful paring down…
I took these lessons and applied them to the other closets in the house.
The Bearded One’s closet…
The linen closet…
The Laundry Room.
The moral of the story is neat and tidy everywhere! Any door opened by a potential buyer only shows another view of the peaceful, organized life they can live in this home.
Maybe it will sink into my psyche too….
