Small Houses Need Love Too! Home Staging Minneapolis MN 

It is so easy to ignore the staging of small houses, thinking that Home Staging Minneapolis MN is only for the large expensive homes but that is SO not true. 

It is my belief that it is just as important, if not more so, to stage the small houses.

Let me show you this great example of a small house in south Minneapolis. 736 total square feet. Yup...that's it. Many apartments are larger. 

One small dining area:

One small bedroom:

One small added on room to the front of the house (what is it?):

And one very small living space. With a 4' traffic flow needed to get to the bedroom and bath, it leaves less that 6' to the hearth of the fireplace to create a living area for conversation, TV watching etc. 

How would the buyer view this empty living space??

Well let's show you how the buyer actually saw this space.......


Dining Room has room for a table and you can still walk around it:

The bedroom is big enough for a Queen size bed and two nightstands:

This 'added on room' shows duel functions which is so important in a small one bedroom house. It can be an office yet a day bed for that guest.

And how about that very tight living area......  Warm and cozy and plenty of room now for sure!

Both the homeowner and the Realtor realized the importance of staging this small space and it paid off. It hit the market on a Saturday, an open house on Sunday and a full price offer came in Monday!!

So show those small homes some love too! They need it even more.

Hi Shar,

Awesome success story with a small space.  The interior looks more spacious with the staging.  Best of GREAT success to you in 2014!

Nicely done Shar!  Small spaces are just as important to define and create emotional appeal for!  Otherwise, they are seen as too small!

So true with today's competition in home selling your local professional Realtor will go the extra mile, plus with home staging you will get better pictures, more traffic and a quicker often higher offer.

 Hello Shar ... Some great before and after shots, great work! I hope the weather is getting warmer in the mini-apple ... VB has many relatives from there and will be coming to visit them this summer. I have a home summer home in Brainerd, can't wait to go do some fishing and relaxing in the boat on the lakes!

Very small Sharon. And some smaller than others! 

Exactly David. This one was the perfect example.

I love Brainerd VB. A little golf at Maddens, some Licorice ice cream at The Chocolate Ox in Nissaw, a beer just about anywhere....

You are a star Shar. You made this look like a dream and it looks charming and I don't focus on the size.
