finishing and paint job can take away from value.

You're also going to pay at least $60+ per hour to bring in an electrician to get the lighting and electrical wiring up to code.

To find the right people to help you achieve the renovations, remodeling, and extensions that you have in mind, speak with your real estate agent. Chances are they have helped homeowners in the past, or can direct you to another agent who has. From there, they will help you with your research, your budget, and tracking down the resources that you'll need to get the job done!

STAGING BEDROOM FURNITURE M FURNITURE

Before you start on the furniture in your bedroom, remove all clutter and personal items from the room. This helps to create an open, distraction-free environment. You don't necessarily have to move things far, just out of sight — tuck family photos in a dresser drawer, for example. If you do not already have one on your bed, consider a comforter or a duvet that comes with matching shams, to create a solid, consistent look. For example, you could have a classic theme or matching pastels. Remove the comfortable 40-year -old duvet that has seen better days, especially during showings. Don't be afraid to move the furniture around in your bedroom to see what works and what doesn't. You never know, your dresser may create a more open space across the room. It's also a good idea to flip your mattress, as well.
