Try This Simple Staging Trick to Help Sell Your Home Faster!
depersonalize
When you are ready to put your home on the market, you start getting worked up about how long it will be listed for. You worry about staging and setting the price right.
There are so many tricks of the trade when it comes to setting your home up for success when it is listed.

One trick that is often overlooked and is free and fast is to depersonalize your space!
How to depersonalize in 3 easy steps:
1. Remove all personal photos 
You can replace the photos with modern and neutral decor. Sometimes even an empty wall is better than a wall covered in your family portraits.
2. Neutral Paint
You may LOVE your sky painted ceiling complete with clouds and angels, or your barn red kitchen but your home will appeal to a larger range of buyers when it is neutral! Soft blues and greens are safer but even better are the tans, creams and grays that are very popular right now.
3. Remove taste specific decor
Your husband may enjoy collecting rock fossils from around the country, but your potential buyers may get distracted by this collection. Any type of collectables, or specific decor like the 60’s beads you have hanging in the door ways needs to be stored for your move!
These simple steps can really help your home appeal to a much larger range of buyers! They want to see the home not be distracted by the owner’s lifestyle and decor.

Air and Space Museum Free Children Story Time Activity!

air and space museum

There are so many great things Northern Virginia has to offer! I love finding new activities and events especially free and fun ones for families! Check out the story time at the Air and Space Museum!

From the www.fxva.com website:

 

“FLIGHTS OF FANCY” – STORIES FOR CHILDREN

 

Museum staff will read stories for children about famous aviators, hot-air balloon flights, trips to Mars, the night sky, and winged creatures that soar through the skies. Afterwards, visitors ages two through eight-years-old will take part in a hands-on activity. Story time will take place at 11:00 am and 11:30 am. Location changes depending on the book to provide the proper atmosphere for each story-telling experience, so ask at the Welcome Center for the day’s Flights of Fancy location.
