When looking at houses for sale, you see everything! From the professionally staged to the hoarder type who insist they don't need to do anything to attract a buyer. To tell you the truth, it's the people in between that are the most appealing to a buyer. The house should be clean, uncluttered, but feel homey and lived in at the same time.
By nature I'm already OCD (and get made fun of for my perfect organization all the time). However, for the selling process it came in handy for staging. And it must have worked (along with other factors too, like location and price), because we sold our condo in one day! In fact some of the people who came through our place thought it was professionally staged, there was no way people lived like this! Oh well, I guess I'm unique individual, with liking my pillows arranged just so. Here are a few tips on staging we gathered up from our experience selling.
