Vacant = Vague
What do I mean by that???
Well, often times homeowners mistakenly think that showing their home vacant will make the house appear larger. This is actually a total myth! Not only does furniture (when used to scale) make a space appear bigger, but it also gives buyers a better idea of how each room can be used!
So instead of clearing out your home and confusing potential buyers, use furniture and accessories to clarify just what makes each room in your home so very special! For example, even when it's clear which bedroom is the master, buyers want to see how their furniture can fit in your specific space. Can they fit their king size bed? If so, is there room for bedside tables, dressers, or a small seating area? The same logic can be applied to living rooms, family rooms, and even basements. Is there room for a large sectional and a television, or is the space better suited for smaller, more intimate gatherings?
So, keeping these ideas in mind, here are a couple examples of vacant spaces that were spruced up with some basic furniture and a few carefully-planned accessories!
