When attempting to sell a home …

• Group your living room furniture into arrangements that inspire conversation. Buyers like to picture themselves relaxing and conversing with family and friends.

• Do a practice run through your house to make sure nothing disrupts the flow. You don’t want your guests bumping into furniture as they walk through the house.

• Baking cookies just before an open house will connect buyers with the kitchen. If you’re not prepared, you can fake it with a delightfully scented candle.

• Get creative and showcase how your space can be utilized. For example, a chair or rocker with a strategically placed coffee cup and a book can turn an empty corner into a comfortable reading nook.

• Draw attention to focal points. For example, red throw pillows can draw attention to a window seat, while a striking fern on the mantle can highlight the fireplace.

• Spend some time outdoors and trim the shrubs, weed the flowerbed, touch up the paint, etc. And remember, first impressions are the most important!
