3 recently Staged Homes in Portland Oregon Sold in Just One Day!

As professional home stagers in Portland OR, we believe that the very best outcome for a home sale comes about as a result of the "winning formula" made up of:

  • a motivated seller with realistic price expectations
  • a great listing agent with savvy marketing skills
  • an expert home stager who advises sellers on easy cosmetic fixes to do before staging, then who stages the home to appeal to the target buyer

We've seen this formula succeed over and over again!  Three of our recent vacant home stagings involved a variety of home styles, prices & neighborhoods, but the common element they shared is that they all sold in just one day! 

~ Here are some Before & After photos of these recent home sales in Portland Oregon ~

House #1 had a small living area where buyers would ask "how will we live in this small space?" home staging in portland oregon: sold in one day

Proper staging showed buyers that the space is more than adequate; this small home had 5 offers on the first day, and the listing agent wrote me:“One day, 5 offers, 3 over list price. We really pushed the price envelope on this house but you did such an amazing job preparing it for market that we're not at all surprised by the multiple offers. You're Wonder Woman!

House #2 needed updating, but our goal was to make it look as inviting as possible for potential buyers: home stagers Beaverton Oregon

The seller wrote me the day after staging: "We had 2 solid offers for well over asking price, both within 24 hours of hitting the market! We believe the staging is (by far) the best investment we’ve made in getting this home ready to go on the market.”

House #3 had been on the market for 100 Days without an offer, yet many other condos around it had sold.  It had no color, and buyers found it hard to fall in love with it: home stagers portland oregon

We did a cost-effective light staging & within 24 hours it sold to the first couple who saw it staged.  The comment we heard this time was: "The place looks fantastic! You're not just stagers, you're Magicians!"

Hi SharonThanks for your enthusiastic support!!  Simple staging works for modest homes like these three examples -- and we've seen it over and over.

(P.S.  I used to work for American Airlines and was often at DFW for meetings.  It's too hot for me in the summer there, but the local real estate prices were very attractive!)

Maureen, I love the appropriate size of furniture you used in the house #1, and you did really bring life into the house #2, and the light staging looks fantastic in #3. I think that the icing in the cake is your statistics.

Hi Anna ~ Using the right size and scale of furniture is important, so that buyers can see if the space will work for their needs.  2012 is proving to be a better year as far as staging results than any of our previous years, since we started in 2006. Let's hope it continues!

Hi Rebecca ~ That light staging in #3 was effective -- after 100 days on the market it sold the day after staging. The feedback from the listing agent had been that no one got excited about the condo before, and the neighboring units had sold.  Thanks for taking the time to comment :-)

Maureen, Way to go! Great results, I believe like you said, the winning team. You do great staging work, what a difference. Does it typically add to the value of a property, or just make it easier to sell?

Have a great evening!

Hi Joe ~ Thanks, staging can make a property much easier to sell, and more quickly.  When a home is vacant, buyers aren't usually able to see themselves living there or how to use the space.
