Who doesn’t love a good before and after line-up? One of the privileges we have at KBREG is being able to work closely with our clients to help them show off what they love about their house as they prepare their homes to sell. Did you know that all of our clients are offered the opportunity to work with Shannon Reppard, KBREG’s very own Home Staging Consultant, who provides a thoughtful room-by-room list of ideas and tips to help your home shine while it is for sale? Below are a few of our favorite before and after pictures from the Fall 2015 market. Kudos to our homeowners for working hard to get their homes ready to hit the market and a big thank you to our fabulous photographer who shoots all of our “after” photos!

Staging Tip: Repositioning furniture and placing extra pieces of furniture in storage can allow the buyer get a better feel for your space and envision themselves (and their things) in your home.
Staging Tip: Storing additional furniture and inviting in nature–both in terms of plants and natural lighting–brightens up your space!
Staging Tip: Tidying and de-personalizing your rooms show off your space nicely.
Staging Tip: Allow natural light to shine in your rooms–turn on your lights and open your windows! And, don’t be afraid to relocate: Here we used the beautiful artwork above the client’s fireplace!
Staging Tip: Pack on up–thinking of staging as your first step to packing and moving allows you to easily prep your space for showings!
Staging Tip: Removing personal items and painting walls with a fresh coat of paint in a neutral color can really make your rooms pop!
Staging Tip: Neutralize your color scheme: we love this color transition for the breakfast nook!
A KBREG Home Staging Consultation is extremely helpful in prioritizing your to-do list and in allowing a fresh pair of eyes look at and help you think about your space before you sell your home. Home Staging is truly the first step to getting you and your family ready to move out of your current home and into your new place. We love working with our clients and helping them prepare their homes to sell quickly so they can–quite literally–keep moving along!
