We're Photo-Staging Again!!

Home Stager with Ready 2 Stage


In a previous post  Cookie Cutter House--Staged for a quick sale! we were unsure of the success of doing a "Photo-Staging"--adding some of our accessories for good photos and then removing them.  So I wanted to update everyone of the status of the "Cookie Cutter House."  It is sold!!  Within 3 days, the Realtor showed the house 6 times (all calls from seeing the pics), received an offer, and closed within 26 days of staging.

Well, here we go again!  The same Realtor has called for another small house that just needs a bit of help.  Next week we are scheduled to do the same thing, and we are hoping for the same result.  Check out the "Before" pics below and I will post an update next week.  

Thanks for all your comments and encouragement!Before Living RoomBefore Living RoomBefore DiningBefore Kitchen

What cute kitchen cabinets, I can't wait to see your after pictures.  Congrats on a job well done!  I usually bring in a few more accessories for pictures during staging days, it also shows the sellers what to look for to setup their home.  If it attracts more buyers to the actual home, you are doing your job.

Lori congratulations on your success. I'd love to hear the comments the buyers make when they get there and the house isn't quite the same.

I see potential, and I'm sure you'll make the most of it.  I'm sure it will look fantastic when you're done!

Thank You Cindy!  We will have to pull a few tricks out of our hats, but I'm sure that it will look better.  Appreciate your comment.

That is awesome.  Great way for some extra income for you and for sellers on a tight budget to get great pictures on line.  Just goes to show you how IMPORTANT great online pictures are.  Thanks for sharing.  Great job.
