One more Portland OR Builder is now a Believer in Home Staging
As experiencedhome stagers in Portland Oregon, we've worked with quite a fewlocal home builders ~we're lucky to haveso many talented ones here! It's especially fun for us to stage a new home because we always wonderwhat lucky buyer will find itand decide it's the perfect home for them. We love to see the latest in home building design trends, too.
Recently westaged a new home that had been on the market for a few monthsthroughout the construction process. The listing agent, a Portland Realtor who's a satisfied repeat home staging client of ours, told me that this particular builder hadn't worked with a stager before -- but was thinking thatthis home might be a good candidate for staging. Like many new homes, the open 'great room' concept is sometimes difficult for buyers to imagine themselves living in. We staged the house a few days later, and then sent our photos to the builder and listing agent so that they could be used in the MLS online listing.
Thishome sold just 14 days after staging,and the builder wrote to us:
"The staging looks great ~ that was definitely a big factor in selling."
We're looking forward tostaging another homefor this Portland home builder in the future! Here are someBefore & After photos of a few rooms that we staged in this new Portland, OR home:
