    OMGosh, recently updated? Really? Maybe they mean the vast array of bachelor pad electronics is new…the kitchen (except maybe the appliances) and bath certainly are not! Excellent, excellent post, Jill, outlining exactly what should be done to create appeal to the target buyer. I hope they take your advice! But having these pictures out there? It’s like toothpaste…you can’t put it back after it’s out of the tube…

      Haha, great point, Janet! Any buyer that has seen the “before” pics is not coming back for seconds! Thanks for stopping by, I always love to hear your sage comments.

    I love your blog posts! They’re so well written with a nice touch of frankness. I also love seeing what $1305 per square foot will get you in Cali! Holy 🐮. Are there going to be after photos?!?

      Hi Kelly, I know, the prices are bananas in SoCal. Being in a beach community this home will sell regardless, but not for top dollar (as-is). To answer your question, I did reach out to the agent about helping to prepare this home for sale, but I haven’t heard back. Waaaa-waaaa. So as right now, there will be no after photos. I think these ARE the after photos, yikes! Anyhow, thanks for stopping by!

    Love the clear and simple solutions. Aspirational staging is a great idea. Let people imagine a better life.

    Excellent article! Just another reason why sellers could really use help from a professional home stager. The cost is always less than their first price reduction!

      Definitely Mary Ann! Even some design help and partial staging goes a long way over the homeowner trying to put their home together themselves. Thanks for your comment!

    WOW! What a difference a few changes can make to really command attention. Sadly, things I never thought about, but will now! I loved your suggestions for each room especially the colors you recommended, and how they work together to create a cohesive style. Your article has me thinking about what we need to do in our home!
