A Perfect Example of how a Staging Consultation can help sell a Home!

A Perfect Example of how a Staging Consultation can help sell a Home! 

We got a call from one of our Preferred Realtor's to give a Home Staging Consultation on one of her listings.  We were to recommend to the homeowner any areas in the home that we thought might need updating, cleaning, de-cluttering and repairing before the house went on the market

In the photos below you will see before and after photos of the Living room and the recommendations that were done by the homeowners.  After the homeowners completed all the list of things we recommended in our Staging Consultation we then were called in to Stage their Home.

Before "With Divine Style" Home Staging

After "With Divine Style" Home Staging

This Homeowner did their homework and hired a Professional Realtor who knew the value of presenting a home in showcase condition.  These homeowners were able to complete most of the work themselves and hired a professional for the work they weren't able to do. 

The result is that this home recently sold in 10 days with multiple offers and over asking price! 

If you were looking on the internet to find your dream home which photo would catch your eye?  Which photo would entice you to want to see more?

 

Can Potential Buyers see themselves living in your Home?

Anna,  Yes this client was a dream to work with.  He went to work on his house immediately and followed through with everything needed to prepare his house for sale.

Linda - What a huge transformation!  This home went from tired, sad and dated, to up-to-date, contemporary, bright and happy!  Love the new pendant light fixture in the dining area too.  Your staging really helped to define the various areas in this big, open room and wow, did you add style!  Great job.

Sally, Thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement.  It's funny you mentioned that the house now looked bright and happy.  The listing Agent told me that at the Broker's Tour all the other Agent's were calling it the happy house.  We were so happy to see all of our recommendations implemented by the homeowners...  they did such a great job!

Rebecca,  Yes... these homeowners really went to work to turn their home around.  When I came back to stage their home with furniture all I could say was WOW!  It was the first time I had seen the house after our initial consultation.  Great for them too...  their house sold in 10 days, multiple offers and over asking price!!!  Thanks so much my friend for stopping by and for the kind words.

What a fabulous transformation.  That living room went to from uninviting to 'let's entertain and relax'.

Well done, thanks for the great post.

Preparing your property for sale

Hi LInda, saw some photos of this in another post of yours. These photos really show the property well.  Really love what you did to bring this 1951 home into the present day. Lovely work and of course, great photography to showcase the work on line. Excellent execution and captured superbly in listing photos.
