Having a property professionally prepared for sale (a.k.a. "Staging") guarantees nothing. Staging a property is the proverbial third leg of the stool, support for both a seller who is ready and willling to do what it takes, and an agent who has diligently priced and will appropriately market a property.
This house was a contemporary colonial in a lovely area, it had a lot going for it. But the Master Bath was firmly wedged in the 1980s, and was bringing the perceived value of the property down. We did a lot of work on it, here is the room I am the proudest of.
An over-the top pink fest, complete with mauve double tub, commode and sinks, shiny brass fixtures and trim, the goal was to neutralize as much of the pink as possible, for the least amount of money. And ohyes, quickly.
We picked up the creamier tones in the marble, and used that color on the walls, ceiling, formica vanity and mirror frames that same color. And YES-I did not realize-that done properly, using a special formula primer, it is possible to paint formica well.
Hard to tell here, but the ceiling was vaulted, there was more surface area to work with, that really helped to dillute the pink.
BECAUSE the owner was willing to do what it took to get their property ready...
BECAUSE the REALTOR was super-duper smart (she was the one who knew the painter who did this!), focused, and spot-on with the pricing...
BECAUSE we all worked together...
This house had multiple offers within 48 hours, and the contracts were signed in 11 days.
Can you say WOO-HOO!!
