"Showcase your home’s greatest potential with tips and tricks from Meridith Baer and HGTV’s Staged to Perfection crew. With spring in full swing, the real estate market has taken center stage. Buying and selling a home is a huge purchase and staging is a key component to fast-selling homes. A home should be stylish, yet versatile enough to appeal to a wide range of potential buyers.
Luxury home stager Meridith Baer was put to the test on the first season of HGTV’s Staged to Perfection with some challenging homes. Baer, her team and their 135,000-square-foot warehouse work tirelessly to decorate Los Angeles’ high-end homes to sell at top-dollar prices. Taking on spaces both small and large, her team certainly dazzled in the spotlight.
Bring life into empty homes and declutter furnished homes. No matter the price point, potential buyers are looking for a space in pristine condition with a lived-in feel that they can make their own. What colors appeal to potential home buyers? How much color is too much? What furniture is best for small spaces? What about family photos? How do you stage a patio? Do I need to stage my closet, too? Baer and her crew have the answers and more. Browse photos of her transformations and get inspired to stage your own home for sale – you’ll have buyers ready to sign on the dotted line in no time." Lauren Harris
In Northern Michigan, The d3 Team recommends highlighting your homes' assets! Don't want a fireplace going in the summer? Add some tall candles on stands that match decor and light candles for open houses. Bold color can be creative if not overdone. Use color as inspiration and bring that same color in with accessorizing the room. Match couch pillows with wall colors and don't hesitate using textured pillows like suede or leather. There are some really inexpensive and creative ways to accomplish this look. Maximize your room space by placing your bed up against a window. This will allow for more space in the room for other unique furniture pieces.
