So, what does Pete Seger's song, Little Boxes have to do with Home Staging? Well, condos are essentially ... um, well ... little boxes. They are awfully darn similar. One door on a central hall, opens into the kitchen-dining-living area and has windows on the other end. Most of them are all white, with wood floors or beige carpet ... maybe gray concrete. If you are selling a condo, your competition is all pretty much the same and there are probably several others for sale in your own building that are exactly the same. And whether you are in the lovely Portland Pearl District or brand new South Waterfront, there are several other buildings all within blocks that are also pretty much the same. Don't forget, if your condo is a re-sale, there are lots and lots of brand new "Little Boxes" for sale that are all clean and shiny and don't have nicks or scratches or stains.
So why should a buyer pick yours to buy? Staging is the one thing that will make your property stand out distinctly and be preferable to the rest --- unless of course you want to sell yours for less money.
So, pick up the phone and call a stager. Here's the song for you to enjoy.
