31 Days to a Staged Home :: Day 5, Buyer's Eyes

If this is your first time here, and you'd like to start at the beginning of this series,
click HERE.

Welcome back!

Today we will be discussing the action of "putting yourself in someone else's shoes".
YOU, the seller, must pretend that you're the buyer
and that you're the buyer coming to YOUR house.

Here we go.

First, grab your (charged) camera. You are going to take pictures of your house 
so that you can critique them and make an honest judgment about the property.

It may take a while, but this is extremely helpful.

In a few days, we will get to the actual room-by-room details:
What to toss, what to take to storage, what to keep, and where to place it.

Tomorrow's topic is The Big Stuff:
Problems that, based on the inspection report, must be dealt with first,
and items that will need the first part of your staging budget,
even before the painting of the walls or the moving of the furniture.

Hope to see you again tomorrow.
Charge your camera and get to snapping those photos!

Don't forget, Day 31 is Q & A day.

If there's anything you'd like to know, just ask me in the comments,

and I will compile them and address them on the 31st.

Thank you!

And now it's here, all the information from all 31 days of the series, in one book.

  1. I'm really enjoying this series! You are so right about photographs showing you what needs attention. It's amazing how differently cameras capture things that the unaided eye misses!

    1. Hi Tricia!
      Thank you! Yes, Pictures really DO say 1,000 words, don't they?

  2. fascinating! i look forward to following your 31 days!

  3. I remember the first time I decided to blog about my house. The pictures made me cringe. Then I understood staging a photo. It got to be too much work for me - hence the blogging has seized - at least in the home area interest. I agree that photos are wonderful!

  4. Once I clear our the craft stuff out of my 4th bedroom, it will be empty. Should I leave it empty, or should I try to stage it? I don't have bedroom furniture for a 4th bedroom.


Thank you for coming by and for sharing your heart and thoughts with me!
