HGTV has changed the Home Buying and Home Selling Experience for nearly all of us. Now buyers walk into a home for sale and expect more vivid colors--a Latte-hued kitchen or Saffron-inspired Great Room. Buyers are more willing to voice their opinions as they walk through a home --just as if they were being featured on Property Virgins or House Hunters. Buyers are more knowledgeable and expect more of the homes they visit. A home must not only be neat and clean but properly staged. An exercise room is ideal if it has not just equipment but also the small touches that create a tableau-- a basket filled with white towels rolled spa style. Bottles of water and free weights also help to set the scene.
