In most cases, curtains, drapes, and wallpaper of any kind are extremely taste- and style-specific. This is not a problem at all for a home you plan to live in. But for a home you’re staging to sell? That’s a different story. Preparing for a successful home sale means creating the most demand from the largest number of potential buyers. To increase the appeal of your home with more buyers, we recommend removing wallpaper and drapes or curtains in most cases when staging a home for sale.
As the April 15 tax deadline approaches, I wanted to remind you that in many cases, the cost of home staging may be tax-deductible!
Home staging is about creating a love connection between the property and potential buyers. As the home seller, you have a HUGE advantage: a perfectly targeted, captive audience and an opportunity to make multiple good impressions! Most buyers who come to your house are good prospects. They are actively shopping for the product you are selling, and if they’ve made it inside your front door, your house probably already meets their general criteria.
