Okay, That Was Meant to Get Attention...
But Baths, along with Kitchens, do sell houses! And meaningful transformations can be made by simply staging the baths so that they look inviting and spa-like. Here are some recent examples by RE:STYLE Home Staging and Redesign in Michigan:
Before, this bath looks dated, not to mention very pink! Below, the savvy seller agreed to tile over the floor (and get rid of those old-lady accent tiles), put in granite and add new knobs to the cabinets, paint the brass light fixture, plus paint the room a color that goes with the Master Bedroom:
Priced at over $500,000, this house received an offer over list in just 17 days! "Kathi, We have a signed contract for $1,000 more than list!!!!!!! CASH. The buyers have looked at 60 homes and wanted MINE."
Can't beat that--especially here in Michigan!
While that example was quite dramitic, here's one that was done using only the accessories to make the difference:
Most would say "Good enough", but we said, "Let's take this from good to great!"
This house had an accepted offer just 2 weeks after it went on the market!
Here is a condo we staged recently in Ann Arbor:
See what just the right accessories (and talent) can do to transform this space:
Now a buyer can see how easily they can move in, without doing a lot of work!
Staging works! The goal is to make an emotional connection with the buyer so that even though your house may compare equally in all other aspects, including price, a buyer will choose yours!
