Our Portland OR home staging company was recently selected to stage a newly-remodeled vacant home in a great Portland neighborhood.  In this 1954-era home, the seller highlighted it's mid-century features while adding all of the conveniences that today's buyers are seeking.  This home was listed on a Thursday, and by the weekend had 3 competing offers and SOLD for over asking price!

 

As always, when staging this home our goal was to make sure it appealed to the target buyers so we used lifestyle staging techniques that we've fine-tuned over years of experience.  Here are some Before & After photos of this Portland home staging project:

Maureen - What a wonderful staging success story!  The living room layout would certainly be a challenge to the average home buyer if they viewed an empty room, as the fireplace isn't centred in the room.  I love the symmetry you used when placing the sofa between the two windows.  Great job all around.

Hi Maureen--I love the comment in #11, and I totally agree.  I think what you did in the living room is fantastic.  And what is not to love about that IKEA kitchen?  Oh, I know, I can't get IKEA anything in Hawaii . . . .   Beautiful work--love seeing your posts.

Hi Sally ~ It's true that an off-center fireplace might puzzle buyers if the home was vacant -- one of the advantages that staging provides is showing how to make sense of a challenging layout.  Thanks for your feedback!

Hi Janet ~ Hopefully someday IKEA will make it to the Islands!  Thanks for dropping by and for your support.

Hi Kathy ~ Thanks very much for your nice compliment and for the Feature!!  Wishing you a very Happy New Year!!

I work with so many investors that use Ikea kitchens too and they always look fabulous! I love your lifestyle staging and I also like that you used low backed chairs, keeping the stunning views totally open.

Maureen as everybody else I like IKEA kitchen and also the island you brought in. The rest of the house is beautiful and inviting. And the bidding war is something we LOVE to hear about.

Hi Maureen, I can clearly see why your investor uses your company. You vividly showed how a buyer could live in this home. The colour selections brought warmth and a bit of excitement to each room. The results speak for themselves. Super work as always.

Hi Anna ~ Sellers DO love a bidding war, that is the ultimate outcome!!  Thanks for your comment.

Hi Michelle ~ Thanks!  This investor client is now starting work on two more homes, which will be ready for staging in a few months. He says that staging is a line item in his marketing budget for every single home he remodels -- smart man!

I'm dying for that original light fixture, Maureen - so great that so many of these features were not only retained, but celebrated!

Hi Julie ~ I loved that original dining fixture too!  Although there were more original features celebrated in this home, I don't have photos of all of them ... but I believe that the mix of vintage charm and new conveniences combined to entice multiple buyers into a bidding war -- and we're de-staging this sold home tomorrow  :-)
