Sold on Christmas Eve - Only 3 Days After Staging

By
Home Stager with Synergy Staging ~ specializing in vacant home staging

As professional home stagers we love many parts of our job.  Transforming a house from vacant to unforgettable.  The challenge of surpassing the expectations of our clients.  And of course, seeing the Sold sign go up on the house.

In December one of our investor clients had us stage this fantastic view home in Happy Valley, Oregon.  We've a had a great string of success with this client, but he had been listing his homes when they were vacant, and THEN had us stage them when they hadn't sold for a few months.  After staging they were consistently selling in less than one month.  In this case he opted to stage the home PRIOR to listing the house.  What a difference it made!  We staged the home on Tuesday, December 21 and it sold three days later on Friday, December 24.  What a great Christmas gift!

We have seen time and time again that staging a home BEFORE it goes on the market is simply the BEST approach to selling quickly. There is no substitute for a house that is presented at its absolute best and priced appropriately for the neighborhood.

Here are some before and after pictures of this Christmas Success Story:

David -- what a lovely house, made even more appealing by Nik's and your magic touch. Thank goodness your client had it staged BEFORE listing this time -- congrats on the quick sale!

I like the interesting way they put pebbles in that shower, quite unusual.

Lovely indeed. Your staging definitely helped to sell as quickly as it did as is evident by your incredible photos.

Congratulations. Your home staging is being featured in the group Staging Before and After Pictures.

This is awesome.  I am a real estate broker/owner and stage my vacant listings and re-style occupied one.  It is so true that it helps sell.  I staged a vacant listing that had been shown many times and buyers couldn't visualize the size of the Country-style kitchen. I staged it and the living room, it got shown the next day and that buyer bought it.  The agent said they loved the staging and home.  If agents aren't suggesting or doing staging, they a not doing their sellers a service in my opinion.  Susan  www.PowerhouseRealtyIdaho.com

It's all stunning - every room!  I especially like your attention to details like the design element that the kitchen and bathroom rugs add to the overall elegance and uniqueness of the home.  Great job!
