 Enchanted Portland Home is Staged ~ and has a full price offer in 2 Days (Before & Afters)  home staging portland oregon

This very cute & charming English-style home was recently staged by our Portland home staging company with great results!  With an active family that included kids & pets, the sellers recognized that staging would make this home more appealing to today's demanding buyers.  First, we provided the sellers with a list of cosmetic fixes that needed to be completed to make it "move in ready."   We recommended painting, refinishing the hardwood floors, changing out a few light fixtures, and other easy fixes.  The sellers moved to their new home and the work began.  Once it was staged they had 12 showings and a full-price offer in just 2 days! 

Staging is not just painting and easy fixes, and it's not just bringing furniture in.  The best home staging includes both cosmetic improvements AND furnishings that will complement the house.  Since the demographic for this neighborhood and size home is another active family, we staged this Portland home with that target buyer in mind. 

Here are some photos of the home in the 3-step process:  Before any work was done; after the work was completed but before staging; and finally, staged.

The living room needed wall paint, refinished hardwood floors, removal of window coverings, painting of the fireplace screen, and a more open, spacious furniture layout ...

Hi, from one of your biggest fans in the whole wide world. You've done it again. And you're so right - the features were hidden. Excellent job, Maureen.

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

Well if that isn't the greatest curb appeal, what a darling house. And if a buyer would have seen the insides 'before' they would have run screaming. Purple DR with green drapes? Are you kidding me, ha. Your work was fabulous. Love seeing the before, middle and after.

Hi Kathy ~ right back at you :-)  This house was too cute to hide the features so we had to highlight them.  Thanks so much for the feature in your Staging Before and After Pictures Group!!

Hi Shar ~ these sellers are not afraid of color (you should have seen some of the other rooms that aren't shown here, before they were painted :-)   That is fantastic for when you're living in a home, but when it's time to sell, my mantra is let's get neutral.

Hi Marianne ~ Many people may not be aware that true staging inlcudes taking care of fixing cosmetic issues as well as bringing in furnishings.  I can't really do the second part well, unless the first part is done, since both are an important component of the overall presentation of a home.  Thanks for stopping by today! 

Hi Beverly ~ Thank you!  The sellers are very pleased to have such a quick sale, and their agent is very happy too.  That's our goal, happy sellers and agents -- and ultimately, happy buyers too.

Maureen - you never cease to amaze me with you're magical staging - you are one of the best stagers in the county and I'm glad you don't work in my area - you'd put me out of business - lol! You are so talented and this home looks amazing. Love the outside too - so charming! I suggest!!!

Thanks, Karen! The purple and green combo is great for when you're living in the home, but not so much when it's time to sell.
