before and after: On The market for a year - staged then sold during the Open House! - 10/08/07 03:58 PM
Here is my latest project-complete with a happy ending. After buying the property, renovating, waiitng a year and THEN staging, the owner accepted an offer right at the Open House. Some even asked if the home came furnished!
One little tip. If you stage with your inventory, make sure the sofa fits through the front door! Here I had to improvise at the last minute, and recover an older couch, as the Open House was the very next day. No one noticed. As stagers,  we are hardest on ourselves.


before and after: Staging on a Tiny Budget - 05/25/07 02:58 AM
Here we are - further to Jackson's  blog, here are a few more examples of working on a tiny budget - of $500 to be exact. No huge changes, but the feel of each room is that there finally is a theme..Check this and see if you agree. Sometimes the challenge in staging is what you can do with the little you are given.
Wasn't it Teresa Meyer that said $500 seems to be the magic number? Hmmm, interesting....
(I know - my picture taking skills could use some work. And a new camera!)
