Staging Tip: The entry view
When you walk through your front door, what is in the immediate line of sight? This is the first impression, a glimpse into the interior of the home. It sets the tone for the rest of the experience when selling a home.
If it opens into an entry way keep it uncluttered. If you have a coat closet, use it. Coat racks and hooks give the message that there is either not enough or no closet storage. If you don’t have one, relocate the landing area for your coats and shoes.
If you have an open concept floor plan, the peek into each room should be a welcoming and attractive visual. Keep the less attractive items on the other side of the room out of view out of sight. Remove whatever is not needed to set the stage for sale.
Just walk through your front door, do a visual panoramic sweep of your view, make changes to create a positive first impression.
