Creating a built-in cabinet or entertainment center can help keep your TV from stealing the buyer’s attention. This is something to consider as an investment for your next home, if needed, as this sort of setup is gaining in popularity.
Too much clutter? Get creative with storage. A large part of preparing your Boston home for sale is de-cluttering your home, but the question remains: where should you keep it.

Whether it’s a bench that also offers storage or a chair that has a small area in the seat for placing items, this is a creative way to hide the abundance of clutter throughout your home and present a clean, neutral-looking environment to a buyer.
Dress up a small space with careful staging. If you have a room that is smaller, there are ways you can make it look better. Rearrange furniture to give the illusion of more space and functionality. Sometimes, you have to think outside of the box when it comes to dealing with obvious shortcomings in a home. You can give an illusion of more space.
