Portland Home Staging Solutions: Before & After Photos Tell the Story

It's been a busy season for Room Solutions Staging in Portland, OR.  This year we've continued to provide home staging solutions for Portland area homeowners, builders, investors and real estate agents.

Sometimes "before and after" photos can best tell the story.  We find that homes that are priced right, marketed aggressively, and presented well (with staging help) are selling very quickly.  

In 2013 YTD our Days on Market for homes we've staged and consulted on is just 18 days!

This home's dated living room needed help:

Before staging with Room Solutions

After fresh paint on the walls & trim, removal of window coverings, carpet cleaning ~ and staging: www.RoomSolutions.com

The family room in this home also needed updating: 

Before staging by Room Solutions 

Cost-effective fixes included new laminate flooring, fresh paint & removal of the dated vertical blinds:  Room Solutions Staging in Portland OR

The seller of this home credited its quick sale to the staging which followed our suggestions for easy cosmetic fixes.

Home staging is a multi-layered, proven solution for homes that need a bit of help (we find that most do benefit from a staging consultation that includes our easy cosmetic suggestions). Today's buyers are looking for a home that they can "see" themselves living in, and one that doesn't need a lot of work.

If your home is going on the market, or already for sale but lingering, ~ call your local professional home stager to make sure that it sells quickly and for maximum value!

Maureen-   Great before and after photos that show what your expertise can do.  The space went from dated and so-so to "today" and very liveable.  I do love those tables, but where's my pear?

Maureen, as always your work is wonderful...just wish you were in my neck of the woods.

Btw, I arranged for my client (occupied home) to meet with a stager to help de-clutter & re-arrange things. It was successful, we now have 3 full price offers & 1 over asking. Next week we're aging another, can't wait.

Hahaha - the pear!  Thank goodness you had that wood trim painted out!  We still see way too much of it here, and it instantly dates a house.

Julie ~ that darn wood trim just makes homes look so drab and dated.  Painting it an off-white/cream to coordinate with the new wall color made a big difference.

Barb ~ You're right, buyers can't relate as well to an empty house.  We need to make it feel like home!

We have so much of the dreaded wood trim in our area. I ask the sellers when was the last time you have seen a builder offer plain wood trim? We all know the answer was decades ago. Buyers do not want dated wood trim. Great before and after photos.

HI Maureen,

Beautifully done!  Both rooms improved dramatically in the after photos.  Your suggestions and your staging made all the difference.  It's no wonder the Home seller credited the quick sale to you!
