Keeping Your Home Clean While Selling, Doesn’t Need to be a Head Ache!

Function, Function, MULTI – Function is key in acheiving this.

As more and more Sellers are living in their homes while they are on the market it is imperative that every piece of furniture chosen to Stage the home is multi – functional.  Many Sellers have children, infants or even pets still in the home which need to be taken into consideration.


One of the hardest things for Sellers to do is to ensure to keep the home show ready at a moment’s notice.  In this tough economy, telling a potential Buyer to give you 24 hours notice to view your home may be detrimental to actually SELLING.  In other words, that potential Buyer may just move onto the next house and never come back.  A simple solution to helping keep children’s toys, pet beds, clothes, shoes and the like off of the floor in ten minutes flat is to have functional furniture in the room.

A great example of this are these ottomans or benches with built in storage.  Functional as additional seating, functional as a coffee table (with a small tray) functional at the end of a bed in a bedroom: but most functional when the doorbell rings of that potential buyer.  Because they have STORAGE, you can easily toss all of those unsightly little rattles, blankets, stuffed animals, chew toys, pet beds, shoes lying around, etc in a flash and the Buyer will think your home is clean and clutter free.

Ten minutes after that Buyer has left, everything is still handy to continue your day while playing with your loved one on the floor.  Still “living” in your home and keeping it tidy while trying to sell doesn’t have to be a headache.
