Educating my clients about the audience they will be marketing to is one of the most important things I do as a Home Stager. When you put your home on the market to sell, you should know that the next owner will likely be younger than you are. That’s why you should stop thinking about what you like or want in a home and start thinking about what your most likely buyer will want. In my most recent Houzzarticle, this is exactly what I address. And it seems like I touched on a nerve with many who don’t agree with my advice!
Surprisingly, Home Staging is something that many homeowners are passionately opposed to. I experienced this about 2 years ago when one of my blogposts was featured on the infamous Ugly House Photos – one dude was so very offended about what I said in the post that you would have thought I was standing in his home and personally criticizing him. If you want to see what everyone’s so up in arms about, click here to read my article on Houzz.com. And if you have some time to spare, do yourself a favor a spend some time on Ugly House Photos. Believe me, it’s jaw-dropping fun over there.
