…what a little paint, a little floor refinishing and a little staging will do.
I almost always recommend superficial cosmetic updates and staging whenever I list a property for sale. In my heart of hearts, I know it works.
But what’s funny is this: When my clients and I are looking at the “before” version prior to the “after” version being completed, it’s really difficult to envision the transformation ahead.
In other words, in hindsight it always proves to have been a good idea. Yet when you’re trying to decide whether or not to spend an extra $500 to have new carpeting put on the stairs, you might think, “Well. Hmm. It can’t make THAT big a difference.”
Note to self: It always works. It’s always worth it. When in doubt, GO for it!
