Staging & Getting Your Home FOR SALE..my tips!
Hello, sorry for the absence while I was moving from downtown Bellevue to Kirkland. I'll still be farming Bellevue, plus I'm a sponsor for Clyde Hill's Annual celebration this Summer! I'm just adding a new Kirkland address to my marketing efforts!
I wanted to pass along some great staging tips to you Sellers out there.
BEST CLEANER - Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser, these are fantastic for cleanup & boy, do they every shine
BEST CARPET CLEANER - without chemicals! Stanley Steemer
BEST PAINT COLOR FOR CLEAN UP - Sherwin Williams "Yellow Flicker"...it's not yellow, it's a good basic bisque color that is light & neutral. NEVER experiment with bold accent colors when you are getting ready to sell!
BEST WEED KILLER - plain old white vinegar, don't dilute
BEST WAY TO GET MOLD, MOSS OF ROOF & DECK - again, plain white vinegar!
BEST WAY TO CLEAN DOOR KNOBS - 1/2 a lemon
BEST PLACE TO RENT ART - go around back of Seattle Art Museum, they have an office where you can rent art from NW artists.
BEST PLACE TO FIND STAGING ACCESSORIES - Store called "Tuesday Mornings"...great items & cheap!
BEST STORAGE CO. - Call PODS, they bring the container to your home! You fill, they take to storage!
BEST NURSERY - "Big Trees" in Snohomish, they deliver, plant & guarantee their plants.
BEST ODOR ELIMINATOR - at QFC, "Traveler's Pure Aire". If they are out, they will order it.
BEST WAY TO 'GREEN" YOUR GRASS - Scott's 9-3-4 Turf Builder
BEST WAY TO BRING NATURE INSIDE - any blooming potted bulbs! Easy care. Trader Joe's also has inexpensive potted orchids that only need a little water each week.
- Target has a great rug section.
- Clorox Bleach pens will erast tile grout
- Get an Ikea catalog...order over the phone, they will deliver, set up for you
- realtors showing your home will not bother to turn on lamps. You need good lighting to show off your place. Get 40 watt bulbs and keep your lamps on.
- Remove ANY DEAD PLANTS (inside & out), bad Feng Shui!
