Home Staging a Nursery or Child’s Room

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

In an ideal world, a home would be unoccupied when it’s on the market and being shown to prospective buyers. But we don’t live in an ideal world, and the majority of homes for sale are still housing the previous occupants. And often times those occupants have families, sometimes with children or even babies. The home still needs to be shown, but the good news is that properly home staging a nursery and or child’s room can actually attract the right buyer for your home. Potential homebuyers, particularly if they are also parents, will pay extra close attention to the nursery space.
