As a home staging company based in Portland Oregon, we help our clients sell their homes as quickly as possible. Our home staging services include tips for sellers that will make their homes appealing to potential buyers (but not just any buyer, specifically the target buyer of their home).
Sometimes our home staging advice includes paint color suggestions if the current paint is either too bold, too taste specific, or tired and worn. Staging also includes tips for easy cosmetic fixes and re-arranging the client's furniture (or bringing in our own furnishings if they've moved out). Furniture placement is a really important part of staging and makes a big difference in how buyers feel about the home: is it big enough? is there enough room for family and friends when we entertain? will our furniture fit in this space?
Here's some Before & After photos of a few Portland homes we've staged where new paint and furniture placement made a big difference.
