Preparing to show your property

Did you know well-placed furniture can open up rooms, making them seem larger than they are? Or that opening drapes and blinds and turning on all lights make a room seem bright and cheery?

It's a fact: acquiring the highest market value and elevating your home above others in the same price range often comes down to buyers' first impressions.
