I really did it. This Saturday, I got up at 7:00 a.m. loaded the car and finished loading a pull behind trailer and was at the house to be staged at 8:30 a.m. All was on schedule except for some details, the owner had been too tired to pack his car so there was STUFF in the living room and the Master bedroom. I assured the seller, no problem, let's stash it in the garage or the Master closet.
With that problem solved, then it was on to vacuuming and cleaning kitchen cabinets and bathrooms. The seller pitched in recruited volunteers, too bad there was no HGTV camera because with the cleanup crew and the stager (that would be me) it was an awesome day of transformation. I left the house at approximately 9:00 p.m. that evening, the only rest was a lunch break to regroup and regather staging items. The house was staged. The front porch was staged plus the living room, dining area, kitchen, two bathrooms, the Master Bedroom, the second bedroom and a third bedroom staged as an office. The covered back patio was also staged.
Here are some before and afters!
