How to Stage Your Home and Maximize Curb Appeal for Home Sale
According to the National Association of Realtors, 77% of agents said that staging a home makes it easier for clients to visualize the property as their own. If staging and curb appeal improvements increase the value of a home only 5% on a $500,000 home, that's $25,000 more in the homeowner's pocket. In this lively interactive workshop, top tips of stagers, realtors, designers, and landscapers will be featured. Curb appeal, landscaping and fencing ideas will also be presented. Class members are invited to email exterior and interior images of their homes and rooms before class to Ridgefield Continuing Education at ridgefieldcontinuingeducation@gmail.com for the instructors to discuss staging and curb appeal ideas in the workshop. Realtor-Owner Debi Orr of Ridgefield's Keller-Williams Realty will show images of well-staged rooms and answer questions on how to improve the appearance of your rooms for a home sale. Design educator Linda Keefer will offer budget staging design tips.
