Staging your Mountain Cabin to Sell
Making your Home as Appealing as Possible
 
 
It is important to understand that you don't have much time to impress a buyer. In most cases prospective home buyers form an opinion about the cabin you have for sale in the 1st minute or so.

Pat Trainor, an associate broker at Coldwell Banker High Country Realty in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Georgia, advises home buyers and developers about capitalizing on mountain views. In his region, lots with a "short-range" view (stretching a mile or two in the distance) run $50,000 to $70,000.
