Under Contract In 14 Days!!! Before & Afters

By
Mortgage and Lending with Liberty Bank of Arkansas

One of my partner Realtors Arlene Urquizu of Coldwell Banker Facuette Real Estate hired Ready, Set, Stage! for 6 hours of hands on staging on one of her listings prior to listing! I didn't feel that I accomplished as much as I could have with this seller. She told me that I was not allowed to move any of her furniture or art work. So we worked on decluttering and packing. (I packed 15 boxes of books) I did what I could.  We are under contract in 14 days!!! This is proof that even if the homeowner doesn't allow for all of our recommendations professional staging can still make a difference!

Here are a few before and after photos.

Donna,

Beautiful transformation as always.  There is so much more visible square footage now.  You got it in showcase condition which brought in an offer right away.  Way to go and congratulations!!!

Linda, Thank you. Clutter has a way of eating up space.

Michele, Thanks, I really was glad we had a quick sale. This seller just lost her husband this year, and needed to sell.

Donna - great transformation.  Glad to hear that despite the fact that there were limitations on what you could do/not do, the house sold.

Congratulations.  Your post is being featured in the group Home Staging Before & After Pictures.

Donna -- it's great to see your business growing and hear your success stories!  This is another example of how hiring a professional stager can make such a big difference in how your home is perceived by potential buyers.

Debra, Thank you! To be honest I didn't feel that I accomplished that much with this homeowner. At least not as much as I could have. But I guess it was enough!
