2 years on the market vacant, just staged, the countdown begins

Home Stager with Ready Set Stage

Hi all,

We just finished staging another vacant property for a builder who has had the home on the market for 2 years.  We are hoping for a quick sale for all involved.  Here are the before and after pictures.  Enjoy.

Chrissie - Wow!  I am looking forward to reading about the great response and how quickly the home sells. Truly a transformation from a house to a home ... what a difference.  Great job!

Gabriela- We took the furniture from another home that sold before the lease was up and used it here, so, I had to use what I had.  I know it's a lot of brown, but, the walls were so light, that I think it warms the space.

Kathleen- thanks for the nice comments.  I am keeping my fingers crossed for the builder.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments.  I really hope it sells fast.  I know the builder is frustrated that it has been sitting so long.  Andrew is going in next week to take pictures too.  I can't wait to see his.

I'm trying to convince my seller to stage a home that's been on the market for 2 years.  I have a feeling that the staging will really help this high end property
