Ranking up there with marriage and the birth of a child, there are few events in a person’s life more fraught with emotion than the selling of a home. Eager that everyone should have a chance at a serene and successful selling free from worry, Meridith Baer of Meridith Baer Home’s long-lauded home staging and interior design firm has years of experience stunningly staging properties to the satisfaction of all parties involved. Aware that our city is not quite like any other, Baer always tries to match the tone of a staging to our particularly tropical community. “Miami home staging should reflect the breezy, tropical feel of the city,” she says. “Rooms want to be open and airy, sunny and relaxed. Lots of whites mixed with earth tones that reflect the ocean blues with occasional lively pops of color.” As familiar with what buyers shouldn’t do as what they should, she has some choice advice for those considering putting their home on the market in the future. “Our goal is to sell your home as quickly as possible at the best possible price. To that end, we recommend that you not spend your money remodeling the kitchen and baths, as the buyer might have their own ideas of what they want. On the other hand, do invest in painting rooms that need it and we recommend a warm shade of white. Also, freshen the landscape a bit if necessary.”; MeridithBaer.com.
