UPDATE: this home SOLD in just 8 days!
People sometimes ask if they should stage their home after they move out, wondering if it would look bigger when it's vacant. We believe the answer lies in the photos that show a home lived in, then vacant after the family moved out, and finally when staged by our Portland OR home staging company.
When we live in our homes, we make the spaces work for us, but when it's time to sell, we have to think like a buyer. Today's buyers want an open space where they can imagine entertaining their family and friends, a space that feels inviting.
Here's an example of a home that we staged recently, showing all three phases (lived in - vacant - staged)
In the living room: Defining the room's function & adding art to highlight the home's best features adds to its appeal & opens up the space
In the family room: Clearly defining the focal point & highlighting the fireplace gives balance & proper flow
In the office: lightening the paint color and removing excess furniture really opens up this space
In the master bedroom: exposing the hardwood floors, opening blinds & adding light makes the room feel more open
If you're selling your home, make it easy on yourself: Consult with a professional home stager on the best way to present your home to today's buyers for a faster sale! This home was sold just 8 Days after staging and listing ... in the month of December!!
