Home Staging on Cape Cod - before and after photos - Enjoy!

Before Home Staging: Photo Exhibit A

After Home Stagers have gone to work on the exterior of the house: Photo Exhibit B

Feel free to comment and take the test...This is just an example of the exterior as well, but remember that this is the first impression as it is the first thing anyone (the home buyer) will see when arriving at the property.

"B" looks like multiple offers

 

"A" looks like a pig with lip stick.

 

I don't think many in their right minds would list a high end property without staging...

I agree and recognize that home staging makes a huge difference - and covers the home stagers fee and then some on the increased sale price.

I would definitely go with property "B." It's amazing to see what some artistic touch can do to a property.

This was once again a great exterior example of home staging - you should keep putting up before and after examples of interiors and exteriors - each comparison could be a good posting on your home staging blog with local Cape Cod and eastern Massachusetts homes

Exhibit B is definitely a much better first impression - no wonder it sells the house for more money and faster

Great job on the staging!  You might even get an offer before they get inside!
