Develop a concept board. You can help your sellers widen the pool of buyers by making it easier for possible future owners to see past an orange range, blue refrigerator, or countertop with exotic swirls. If they really dont want to change a thing, suggest to your sellers that they hire a designer to develop a concept board with samples of more tame choices and a rendering of new design options. “That way you take away the unknown, which to some can be overwhelming” for buyers, says Jennifer Ames, a real-estate salesperson with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Chicago. “The boards become a road map and you could help more by asking a contractor to estimate replacement costs.” How much might a board cost? Pogonitz hasnt yet designed one, but she estimates shed charge $350 to pull together two with different options. The price may vary by region, but the bottom line is that its not that expensive to present a clearer vision of whats possible.
Erin Powell, design director and principal at RoOomy, an online staging firm out of San Jose, Calif., concurs that a well-planned ceiling treatment can help a listing stand out. “It usually wont make or break a purchase, but it opens up the chance to make a buyer more interested,” she says. Here are five ways to showcase a ceiling. Use them sparingly—certainly not in every room—to avoid visual confusion. “Otherwise, the concept may lose its specialness,” Pickell says. This is the least expensive way to make a ceiling stand out and alter its look without major architectural change. New homes often feature the same white color on walls and ceilings, but broker Matt van Winkle with RE/MAX Northwest in Seattle recommends painting the ceiling slightly lighter than whats used on the walls to add depth. Generally, he advises steering clear of bold colors, except in childrens rooms.
