Blue Ridge Properties has compiled this list of tips to help with all of your real estate needs from staging and styling to sell your home fast to ensuring you get the best deal as a home buyer:

Spacious Built-ins

Built-in bookshelves help feed another common buyer craving: the desire for extra storage. Don't let sellers clutter shelves. Stagers Heather Cook and Alana Merritt of Rooms in Bloom offer tips for staging bookshelves and wall units.
• Accent Key Colors. When selecting knickknacks to display, look to the room's color palette for inspiration. Select items that bring out colors in the pillows or wall art.
• Balance. To create a cohesive feel, all items should have similar visual weight, as either a group or a stand-alone piece. For example, hardcover books of similar sizes can provide the necessary structure and height needed to fill out the shelves and balance our small artwork or mirrors on the other shelves. While the bulkiness of the accessories should align, their height can vary to create an appealing, natural look within the shelves. Other good picks for staging shelves: Small-scale framed art, mirrors, candles, and small pots of greenery or flowers.
• Prioritize. Focus on the shelves at eye level first. The shelves above and below eye level shouldn't be empty, but they don't have to be filled to the same degree.
