Posted on May 10, 2023 by Becca Quackenbush

To help the next owners envision their new life in their new home, here are some easy tips:


• Paint is a low-cost investment with a high rate of return

• Keep the color palette neutral and subdued

• Paint an accent wall with a bolder color


• Stage accent items in groups of three that form a visual triangle with a high, medium, and a low level

• Create an inviting mood with warm lighting and neutral colors

• Make all outdoor areas inviting and prime for entertaining


• Group furniture away from walls to create balance

• Arrange furniture to emphasize the room, not the furniture

• Place bold or dramatic furniture in storage

• Keep high-end and durable furniture, area rugs, and upholstery to create a more relaxing and inviting environment.


• Add tons of light – preferably natural light. Place a reading lamp behind a chair, in the corner, to create a cozy nook.

• Place mirrors across from windows to add natural light and give the impression of more space

• Eliminate dark, heavy drapery and replace with materials that let light filter through


• Install a smart thermostat.

• Replace smoke detectors with smart smoke/CO detectors

• Add security with a doorbell camera

• Secure the front door with a smart lock

• Swap out old lightbulbs with smart LED bulbs
