Feng Shui: Clear the clutter!
I've been studying the basics of Feng Shui (fung shway) to see how it might impact the sell of your home. In the little bit that I do know about it so far, there are some things that could have a huge affect. For example clutter. Clearing clutter is one of my main rules for staging and makes a world of difference not only to the seller living in the home, but for potential buyers. Have you ever noticed a difference in your thinking abilities when your office is cluttered compared to when it's not? Or have you noticed a more rest full sleep when your bedroom is clean. Well the same type feelings are there when a stranger enters your home for the first time. Do you want them to feel welcome thinking they could picture themselves living happy their? Or a first impression of chaos, thinking the only about the sellers and their cluttered living habits? As well as all the changes they would need to make before they could picture themselves living there.
So do yourself a favor and start clearing out the clutter! Don't let it be a factor on how much someone is willing to pay for your home! Make them want to live there now and want it so bad they are willing to pay full price to get it!
