"Location, Location, Location" Refers To More Than Just The Address

 

It's the real estate mantra...."Location!  Location!  Location!"  As a professional Home Stager in New Hampshire I've had clients at both ends of the spectrum.....from ocean front to landfill directly behind.

 Location does matter.

Here's something to consider if you're planning on listing your New Hampshire house for sale.  Location isn't just about the property address.  Location of furniture is also very important!

Furniture placement can make or break a home sale.  Sure, some buyers can see past the furniture, but it's only about 10% of them.  The other 90% of potential buyers can't visualize.

If a room looks too small because the furniture is too big....too bad.  

Your furniture placement is based on comfort and convenience and it may work for you, but it won't work for potential buyers...most of whom won't take the time to imagine a more spacious floor plan.

For a house to show it's best, and for the best MLS pictures:

Arrange furniture to show space and establish function in each room.   The following photos are examples of how changing furniture location can improve the appeal of a room.  All of these transformations are from owner occupied listings...the result of a 2 hour consult....using nothing but existing items.

Dana:  Thank you, and thank you for your support of the staging industry.  Too bad the staging position didn't work out...I hope the stager is still being used on an "as needed" basis.

Patricia:  All the furniture against the walls, and/or all the furniture on one side of the room are two other things I see that need to be addressed. 

Ellen:  I forget sometimes just how ignorant people are on the subject of furniture placement.  It's always a surprise to my clients when I rearrange things.

Peg:  So true!  A new mantra:  Edit!  Edit!  Edit!

Kathy:  Thank you!  I appreciate the Feature!

Lyn:  I hate mauve too.  In this case painting was not in the budget.    Turns out the other changes we made were enough.  It sold right after staging.  The house had already been on the market for quite some time prior to staging with no offers.

Hi Sharon, not what we generally expect when we hear that mantra, location, location, location.  Your pictures look great!  and illustrate the benefits of good staging.

Excellent post.  You have to keep sight lines and walking lines open for people.  It makes the home look bigger.
