Almost all of us have tried to beautify our homes with indoor plants and most of the time they don’t last long. Plant care can be surprisingly trickier than we think it will be. These five tips will help you to revive your current house plants or ensure a long, healthy life for your future greenery.

Picking The Perfect Plant

Sometimes you can give a plant all the water, sunlight and soil it needs to survive and it still won’t be able to. Certain plants simply can’t survive indoors in the Bahamas. This is why it’s important to ensure that the indoor plants you’re about to buy are actually indoor plants.

Home staging is essential when trying to seduce potential buyers. It can set the scene for love at first sight, leading to love at first buy. To continuously impress buyers, it’s important to keep up with seasonal staging trends. These tips can be used to woo your customers this Spring:

Avoid a Colorless Canvas

Treat the home as a canvas, using color to set the scene that buyers need to see. You should bear in mind that optimal staging involves a balance between neutralization and strategic shading. Color should be used to make the home’s most attractive features pop without blinding or bombarding them. Use neutralization or a small range of colors to avoid visual jumble.

A new year usually means new goals and, hopefully, new accomplishments. If selling your home is on that long list of things you’d like to get done in 2015, Island Living Real Estate has some suggestions on how you can accomplish that goal with these simple tips.

Declutter

The first thing you should do, says Rachel Pinder, Broker/Appraiser at Island Living Real Estate, is to declutter your home after the Christmas rush. “When you are taking all of your decorations down after the holidays, that’s a perfect time to declutter your home and get rid of everything you did not use in 2014,” says Rachel.

Did you know that only 10% of potential home buyers can see past the personal tastes of home owners, whether it’s paint colour, window treatments or clutter? That’s why home staging might be a good option if you’re looking to sell your home. Home staging is the art of professionally preparing homes for sale by creating inviting and warm interiors that appeal to a wide variety of buyers. With so many homes on the market, it’s important to make yours the one that buyers remember by showing off your home’s potential. The first impression is a lasting one, and if your home is messy or badly furnished you could lose a buyer.

Sara Saunders, of Homestaging Bahamas says not many people can see the potential of a home. “Many buyers don’t realize how easy it
