Wow! A High and Mighty Brain Rush Revisited
I've been spending some time going through last years stagings to post to my Web site -- yes, we have been so busy as this great industry of home staging has been growing here in Atlanta, I am just now updating 2011 photos! We are truly blessed to have such a problem!!!
Anyways, I stumbled across my photos for this job and once again got that high and mighty brain rush that comes with a successful job well done (we all feel it -- Realtor or home stager) when the home sells and the buyer can't express enough gratitude. Gotta love it and it's what keeps us all going.
So here is my favorite story from 2011:
Just off the master bedroom of this Dunwoody home in Atlanta sat an awkward, tiny room with no door. The first reaction was to stage an office, but we didn’t want to mix the feel of work with the tranquility of a master suite. So we created a peaceful dressing area. This vacant home had been on the market for two years. The day after our Atlanta Home staging, the home received two offers, one being a cash offer at full price. They closed in 20 days.
This Dunwoody home had additional challenges. We loved the wood trim in this Retro 1950's home in Dunwoody, however during the two years on the market vacant the seller repeatedly heard so many Realtors advise him to paint the wood trim. Instead, of removing the homes charater with paint, we made our Atlanta Home Staging presentation show the beauty of the trim with our furniture and accessory choices. There is no question that showing the features of this home with our Atlanta home staging brought in the cash offer at full price day one on the market after staging.
A third challenge in this Dunwoody, GA home was a room located off the family room that connected to the master bedroom. The room had a wet bar; but, vacant, appeared to be a more of a sun room; therefore the purpose of the room was confusing to potential buyers. Our Atlanta home staging kept with the retro theme of the home displaying the space perfect for entertaining any time of day.
Next, came the challenge of a tiny, (I mean TINY) dining room in a RETRO 1950's home with a causual brick wall! Yep!
Last, but not least, came the fun of blending the modern front windows and architure with a presentation that conforms to a look that would be a buyer's dream in today's market.
So, that's my high and mighty brain rush revisited . . . for today anyways!!!
