Camoflage? Flip?

Looking to buy a home?  Keep your antenna up!  

There is nothing inherently wrong with  flipping  property… nor anything wrong with having it staged.   What about “covering up” though?   … Let me tell you…  If  a seller moves an area rug to hide a water mark on the wood floor, I’m going to wonder what else that seller is hiding!

Staging is great.  Staging a home allows  buyers to envision themselves living there.  With the clutter and distractions  gone,  each room is defined and recognizable.  You know where the living and dining rooms are, and you know where the bedrooms are. The purpose of staging  property is to make it visually appealing to the person wandering through  …   Staging removes clutter, allows the eye to continue moving, and create flow.     

Staging and decorating  differ, and serve two separate purposes.  

Staging is for someone passing through.

Interior design or interior decorating are for the benefit of someone sitting or staying… and to be experienced from that vantage point.  

If you stage a house,  look through the eyes of your buyer…  who will  walk through the house … not sit down for dinner.
