In an earlier post I shared before/after photos of a place we helped clean when visiting an older relative. At that time we organized his trophy collection and books. Sadly this person recently passed away, so we returned to prepare the home for potential buyers or renters. When a house has older furniture and there is no budget for staging, can it still be set up in an inviting way?
|After: Livingroom rearranged (using same furniture as the before photo).|
|Aloe and bookstand arrangement where TV used to be.|
|Before: Trophy and bookshelf. Trophies (and even books)|
can make a home seem like "someone else's" to a
potential buyer, so we removed them.
|After: A computer desk with antique chair shows a potential buyer that technology fits within this house. The dated switchplate on the wall could also be replaced.|
