Do it Yourself Home Staging
Updated: Tuesday, March 02, 2010

When it comes to selling Lake Michigan real estate, home staging has transitioned from a benefit to a must, especially in today’s market.  Not all of us have the extra funds lying around to pay for a professional home stager but such a problem does not require that you become a pseudo interior designer in order for your home to look good.

The easiest way that you can improve the appearance of your Lake Michigan property and get started with home staging is to simply remove clutter and employ the less is more approach.  This includes furniture that’s unnecessarily bulky or that may make a room appear smaller than it really is.  Buyers like large spacious rooms.

This one you may have heard before but is important to reemphasize: neutrality.  By simply keeping color choices to those that would appeal to the broadest audience of buyers and refraining from unique tastes, there’s much less of a chance of a potential buyer viewing your Lake Michigan property and being turned off by that turquoise color scheme you chose for your living room walls.

And of course, do practice the utmost of cleanliness.  You’d be quite surprised how adept some people are at detecting dust and dirt.
