      Paint color is HUGE, and so many people get it so wrong. Thanks for your input, Janet!

    This is a great post, Jill, and I especially love how you stress that the homes that sell for the most money tell a consistent visual story from the moment the potential buyer walks in the door.

    Wonderful tips! I can attest, as a property investor and interior designer, about homes telling a story. Our most recent property sold me on the home telling a story. I know I won’t be able to put it into words, but the home had a ‘feel’. I knew it was the ONE the moment I walked into the house.

      I think we’ve all had that feeling, Sheri, whether we’re buying or just attending an open house. There’s an energy and “feel” (as you mentioned) of good design and that cohesive story. Thanks for stopping by!

    Excellent article! As a home stager, I agree with everything above! I love that you mention the point about the home needing to tell a story. Buyers buy on emotion and telling that story is key. Home stagers listen to the house and the story it wants to tell and then highlight that. Also, paint colors are key in selling. So many people think a fresh coat of paint is good enough but select the wrong colors, leaving good money on the table.

      Thanks, Mary Ann! I’ve seen a lot of bad paint choices, I’m sure you have too. And then there is so much beyond paint to be considered. Thanks for your iput!

    Love the aspect of the home telling a story. That’s so true and not often considered.

      Unfortunately this is true, Darla. I’ve been in some stunning homes that were a complete hodge-podge on the inside. Thanks for your input!

    I couldn’t agree more, funky smells can be a killer. Great tips on what to be mindful about.

    Excellent post and points. Love the story-telling part. I bet you many homeowners trying to sell their home often don’t think about that.
