Contemporary Home staged & SOLD in 5 days - Before & Afters in Portland Oregon

By
Home Stager with Room Solutions Staging, Portland OR

Room Solutions Staging in Portland Oregon was recently selected to stage a vacant 1987 contemporary home, working with a limited budget.  The kitchen had been updated a few years ago, helping to bring this home up to current standards, and just before listing they updated the bathrooms.  After we staged the home it sold for over asking price in only 5 days!  

Staging a vacant home to show potential buyers how the space might be used is critical in today's market, especially when the space is more open and undefined, as in this 1987 example.  Buyers who walk into a space with nothing to look at will notice small flaws and instantly lose interest, thinking the house will be a big project.  Here are some Before & After photos to show how we used color and a simple plan to highlight the features of the home ...

Christine ~ the quick sale was very welcome by the sellers, who had moved overseas.  In today's market, correct pricing by the broker and staging by a professional are a winning combination.  Thanks for your input.

LaNita ~ Thanks, I never tire of looking at other stagers' Before & After pics of transformations here either!

Elizabeth  ~ there was no fireplace in this living room and the obvious selling feature was the view outside those large windows, so angling the sofa to point buyers towards that  feature made sense.  Thanks for your comments!

Maureen, Awesome job. Congratulations on the quick sale. It's funny when we hear this "quick sale/staging" that everyone is still not on board with it.

The house looks great - love the poppys.

Kimberley ~ You're right, sometimes agents or sellers STILL don't get it, even with great stats!  We will continue to educate them about the benefits of staging at every available opportunity ... thanks for your feedback.

Kimo ~ Thanks for stopping by with your comment ... the bathrooms were SO dated they really needed work!

The darker cabinets and counter look much more expensive and contemporary.

Cindy ~ Isn't it amazing how a relatively inexpensive update can make such a difference in a bathroom? 

Joan ~ Those melamine & oak trim Euro-style cabinets really date a home.  Updating them was the right decision!

Nancy ~ Buyers want to feel they can move right in ... thanks for your feedback!

Wendy ~ With white walls and no fireplace to act as a focal point, the living room needed color and interesting furniture angles to point buyers towards the lovely forested view.  Thank you for stopping by!
