"The Project" is complete - home is renovated, staged. Today - 1st day on Market & OPEN HOUSE!

Home Stager with Argent Décor

I've been blogging about our "Flip" house my father purchased and we've been coordinating renovations and furnishing.  Not "staging" - furnishing.  All the furniture & decor is new, so we can offer it as a turn-key Vacation Home with the furniture available by separate bill of sale.

We wrapped up the final touches yesterday, and I could not be more pleased with the final outcome!  Here are some "Before" and "After" photos:

Front Elevation - the yard was entirely neglected; drip system was repaired, overgrown tree and lantanas trimmed; dead tree to left (not shown) replaced; new flowering plants installed and extra granite stones added to "refresh" the landscaping.

Living Room - our "orange and yellow" paint is history!  New 2" blinds instead of the verticals; we banished the outdoor ceiling fan and put coordinating oil-rubbed bronze ones in all 4 bedrooms and the Living Room.  New carpet & pad, too!

Kitchen - IT'S NO LONGER ORANGE!!! YAY!!!  Tile has been cleaned & sealed; everything was deep, deep cleaned and detailed!

Master Retreat - Mismatched fan is gone; look, I even turned the lights on when I photographed it!  ;)
No longer stark white, the soft neutral tan is much more calming of a tone.  That's a King bed (from our private furniture line, AZTuscanFurniture.com) and there's still PLENTY of room for a reading area...the room is massive!

Here are some general photos - enjoy!

THANK YOU, Juli!  We are hoping to keep the trend of "under a week" on Market like with our other staged homes in San Tan Valley....

Hi Sharon -

Your before and after pics are a great idea.  Doesn't even look like the same place and now should bring a quick sale!  Some people just don't get it that's when people like you step in and work the magic!  May the force of the Rain be with you.

Regards from the Q

Fabulous job.  I am sure that with your attention to detail that this will be gone quickly.  I have a client considering the area and your's was one that he flagged out of the listings I sent him.  Unfortunately, he's not quite ready for his trip here from BC.  It's just a testament to what you have done!
