Time and time again, I will walk into a property where the homeowner has staged it themselves.
No matter how well they have staged the home, many times will leave dollies on the coffee tables and night stands. PLEASE remove them, they are outdated which cause's the property to feel outdated.
I can't tell you the number of times I have walked into a perfectly staged house with the most beautiful lamps. Unfortunately, many don't have light bulbs! Note to all home stagers...please put in light bulbs. They add a beautiful warm and inviting feel to the room when photographed.
