I found some useful home staging bathroom tips via my ScoopIt feed this morning. Over and above cleaning, down to bleaching the grout to get the space be appealing, it was the ideas on how to make the space feel relaxing, and spa like.

Typical home stager recommendations for sellers prepping their house for sale usually include:- Finish up the Honey Do list i.e. fix all the stuff that’s obviously broken.

What’s a flipper?
An investment property that is bought as a wreck, usually, fixed up with new kitchen, baths, floors, carpet, walls, everything. They used to make a lot of money, back in the day.
