Just keeping it real!
Keller Williams Realty - Leesburg, VA
When I stage, I empty the closet if possible. I thenwill use some nice wooden hangers and I may put a few cloting items on them (ex. a Terry Robe) some shirts, slacks etc). I collect shopping bags from high end stores, fill them neatly with tissue and place them on some of the shelves, It looks like someone just came back from a shopping spree and they are making a new start! Subliminal :). If the paint is dirty or needs some touch up do it!
If clients still live in the homes,you may not have a choice, so I ask them to pack up and remove everything they will keep but will not need until the seasons change. I then, make sure all hangers match, and have the clothing arranged according to type and color. (yes, this takes the willingness of the seller to cooperate). MY favorite phrase is... "There is the house you live in and there is the house you sell! " This makes the closets look attractive and spacious.

It's almost like the garage. Clear the garage :-)
