I am so proud of the students from my recent home staging training class held in Vancouver. By putting into practice the skills and techniques learned during the 2 full days of previous classroom instruction they completely reconfigured and refreshed a property to better prepare it for sale.
Incredibly the talented group transformed the listing in a matter of hours but perhaps what is even more remarkable is that they used only what was already available in the home.
After languishing on the market, the home received an offer the day after it was staged, in fact it received multiple offers! The result was a sale above the asking price within a week.
I received the following email from the listing agent.
" ... I just wanted to let you know that we have officially sold the listing. It went into multiples last week and sold for over asking for $650,000. Once again, I want to thank you all so much for doing such a great job with the home staging. It was very well done, really opened and brightened up the home, and definitely helped with generating so much interest."
Here are a few of photos of the transformation....
