Staging a home for millennial buyers: Don’t make it look like Grandma’s house
Most buyers want a home that’s light, bright and sparkling clean. Millennials, the generation born from 1980 to 1995, also want a home that’s move-in ready, modernized and furnished with all the colors and comforts of a Pottery Barn store.
“No millennial wants to buy Grandma’s house,” says Melinda Bartling, a home stager and Realtor at Keller Williams Partners in Overland Park, Kansas. “And a lot of them don’t want to buy their parents’ house. It needs to be hip. It needs to be fresh.”
