'Speed Decorating' Quickly Improves Property

Anyone planning to sell a home might be advised to read Jill Vegas’ Speed Decorating.” Vegas explains how to redecorate at minimum cost and maximum speed.

“Speed decorating,” she says, “is not about calling in contractors; it's about looking at a room and thinking about what you can do in a couple of hours, a week, to make it better."

Vegas offers these tips for anyone who needs to do a little high impact, low cost upgrading:

  • Clear out the clutter
  • Clean and repaint
  • Define the function of each room and then place furniture to accentuate that purpose
  • Improve the lighting, adding bright light to work areas and soft light to bed and dining rooms
  • Use art and accessories to add drama and personality

I would suggest finding an agent who is also an Accredited Staging Professional ("ASP"). The staging services the agent provides are FREE. We have clients who have asked that I provide staging services before we list their homes for sale. Pat Pribisko, B.S., J.D., ASP. TEAM PRIBISKO, Keller Williams Greater Cleveland West.

There are many homeowners I have worked with in the past that this is all that they needed. Staging does not always mean a complete repaint, furnishing and new home accessories. Work with what you have.
