So by removing all of the decor, it actually looks cleaner and less cluttered! And it only took an afternoon.

It wasn’t awful in the first pic, but you can see that by taking away items actually opens up the space, making it more appealing to the buyer.

Another awkward space in our home was our office that we used as a recording studio.  It needed to still be operational, so how do you make it appealing to a potential buyer, especially if they won’t use this space the same as you?

It was a jumbled mess covered in instruments, cords and sound panels.

We plugged the window for sound proofing, but recognized that a potential owner may not see past the temporary nature, so a simple removal of the window and rearranging some our equipment and the room looks much more open and could envision the space as a home office.

So following these easy tips and tricks can help get your home to sell quickly!
