Sellers need to look through buyerâ€™s eyes when staging
â€śRealtorsÂ® need to tell sellers to think like a buyer when staging the exterior of a home,â€ť said Barb Schwarz, president and CEO of StagedHomes.com. Schwarz recommends taking sellers across the street so they can take a good look at their home.
â€śAll of a sudden it hits the seller right in the face and they see for themselves what needs to be done. Itâ€™s really a great way to get the seller on board to stage the outside of the property,â€ť she said.Â
Cleaning and painting the outdoors is a must but the new trend to make the outside of a house pop is shutters.Â Schwarz said on darker homes use light-colored shutters and on light homes use dark-colored shutters. â€śThey give a really warm feeling to a home,â€ť she added.
