Ok, had a few minutes. Here is the living room. It is an old house and very very small. Not quite "showing worthy" yet. Obviously, I close the doors on the tv too.

Your living room is lovely and looks show ready. Wish mine looked that neat. You certainly don't have to do anything else to that room but keep it clean. I like your photography too.

Any some time in the future you may want to have the photos enlarged and put on canvas. I hear even Walmarts does good work and their prices are cheap enough.

Looks like you are really close. I agree with REL, needs some color. Do you have any bright pillows or throws you could put on the chair and sofa?

Cute pics and room, mully!

I did agree with you, however, that the room needed a few changes. Noticed on another thread that you received an offer. Congratulations!

I didn't have many comments but will hold most of them just in case the worst happens and your sale doesn't close. Assuming it's a reasonable offer with reasonable terms, we definitely don't want that to happen!

Guess you were concerned about privacy and didn't care to share your listing. We're harmless, really, lol!

IMHO, the couch was too large for the room. B/c it basically ran into the wall, it unfortunately screamed to buyers that the room was small. And, given that this was basically the front room and introduction to the home, it probably gave buyers the impression that the house was too small. Even if it truly is a small house, that's a first impression we try to either eliminate or minimize when staging a home. So, I had a few tricks to make the room feel a little larger.

WRT the artwork, your dandelions are terrific! I do, however, believe your concern about the artwork was valid. The room's challenging to decorate b/c of the multiple windows and doorways, allowing space for smaller pieces, only. The plethora of smalls make the room feel even smaller, IMHO. (It's ironic that both extra large items and small ones can make a room feel smaller, right?) For that reason, I would have recommended that you remove all the artwork and highlight your moldings, etc.

If I'd seen photos of the other rooms, I'm sure you had a great place to use your dandelions.

Best of luck with your sale. Too bad that we never know, as sellers, if we've truly maximized value. I sincerely hope you did and that the deal closes without an issue of any kind.

Sounded like you're ready to move on with your life! Have you purchased another home?

Best to you -

Hi Dylan, Welcome to the group. When you read some of the posts you will realize many of us are real estate and design professionals. What you will not see are the names of our agencies. That is because there is a forum rule against advertising.

We hope you will make a great addition to our little group, new blood and all, and remove your company name from your signature line.


Fun and Info

IIRC, "Morris Real Estate" is one of the frequent flyers that posts under different names and already know that advertising is prohibited.
