Universal Staging Principles
How do you stage an outdoor, in-ground swimming pool in the backyard of a “For Sale” home?
The same way you stage anything else: by adding accents, focal points, and color — and removing clutter.
For an outdoor pool, that means opening up any poolside umbrellas, arranging nearby lawn chairs, and throwing a beach ball (or two) into the pool.
Even better: coaxing a couple of people into the pool (unfortunately, no one was around mid-day yesterday).
P.S.: the seasons in Minnesota don’t necessarily cooperate, but the best pool staging advice is “open and in use” vs. “covered for the winter.”
