One of my absolutely FAVORITE things to do, besides shopping at Home Goods or spending time with my 1 year old granddaughter ;), is styling or staging my clients’ homes prior to listing! Today I thought the transformation was so great, that I’d bring you behind the scenes room by room so you can see that it doesn’t need to cost thousands of dollars to make a HUGE impact on how well your home shows.  Doing things like pulling down wallpaper, painting walls a light, neutral color, scaling down furniture and “stuff” that’s sitting around and changing out outdated curtains and window treatments for a few select white or ivory accessories and simple curtain panels brings HUGE returns in the way of 1) shorter time on the market before getting under contract and 2) bringing you more $$.  You see, in today’s market, buyers are willing to pay MORE for move-in ready!  At the Jan & Dan Team, this up-front work is customary because we do the hard work before we list our clients’ homes  in order to bring them the highest return on their investment! so… enough talk, let’s check out the BEFORE & AFTER pics!

So there you have it… you get the idea!  Looking at your rooms one by one thru the eyes of a camera— helps you identify things that need to take place to show off the BEAUTY of your home!  Some people have an eye for it and love it- We at the Jan & Dan Team have our staging certification and this is a customary part of our pre-listing work with our clients.  We do the hard work up front, partnering with our seller clients; we go buy the “right” light fixture, we have amazing contractors who give our clients discounts on top level work, etc.  Call us 540.931.5050 and let’s talk about YOUR home!  We can’t wait to meet you and give your home the WOW factor so you receive the MOST $ when you sell!  Jan@JanandDanTeam.com
