Home Staging and Pre-Listing: Get a jump start on the spring market. It’s nearly the ides of March and chocolate eggs tempt me at the grocery…spring is here and that typically means it’s a great time to put a home on the market. In the meantime, it’s never too early to begin the process of readying a home for sale. Why not start now with sorting and packing, donating and organizing, list-making, painting, cleaning, and updating? For those of you who are looking ahead to downsizing, that can be a large and time consuming job. Why not enjoy the fruits of your labor? Too often I hear people say that their home has never looked as good as the day of list or sale…isn’t it sad that we wait to make changes that really impact the enjoyment of our homes until we are ready to move on. I say, start staging your house now. Whether you are planning on moving in the next month or the next year, ready your house for your enjoyment and relaxation…and it will be ready for listing when you are.
