Whether you’re preparing your home for sale or redecorating, I have found The Local Vault to be a wonderful resource for my real estate clients.


If you are preparing your house for the market and would like to achieve top dollar, staging works and you don’t have to spend a lot of money.

Your goal should be to de-clutter and neutralize.  Identify those items that are either detract from your home’s best features or won’t work at your next home and earn some money by selling them on TLV.


You might consider repurposing a room that may be better suited to your target buyer.  For example, your playroom may be the ideal home office.  The Local Vault has two great desks,                                    the Pangea Home  Beverly Desklead-khan202

or the White Niedermaier Mudno Desk that will scream style and function.gmaz109-2-1


It’s also important to wow the buyer when they come through the door.  Consider adding a console from TLV like the Ligne Roset sleek console table style with flowers and a great lamp.ligne-roset-contours-console-table-in-ebony-oak-with-ebony-glass-top_leadThese well-priced items tend to go fast on The Local Vault so check in often.


If you just need to refresh or add to your dećor, The Local Vault can help there too.  A great option if you need to update a light fixture is the Visual Comfort Alexa Hampton Flush Mount. It’s half off retail and would be ideal for a powder room or foyer.

If you don’t subscribe to the neutral trend, have fun with some of the great over-dyed rugs in stock and colorful artwork.

One of the best parts of dealing with The Local Vault is they do a great job of representing the products, flaws and all. You can also generally pick up items locally or have them delivered in just a few days.   Thank you TLV for offering such a great service!
