Professional Home Staging for Occupied Homes

By
Home Stager with Creative Concepts-Home Staging and Contracting, Salem Oregon CCB #180695

As a professional home staging company with inventory for 65 homes, you can understand we LOVE going into vacant homes and creating a picture perfect home.

But what about occupied homes?

Some occupied homes have too many personal choices....or dated furniture (and some clutter too).

How can these homes compete when 95% of home buyers are shopping online?  Let's face it -- how we live in a home isn't something most of us want broadcasted all over the internet!

Yes, we at Creative Concepts love staging occupied homes!  Let's take a peak at a recent transformation!

As the market slows down, stagging ones occupied house is more beneficial than ever. Photos on internet are what stirs buyers interest to a house.

Excellent examples of the power of home staging. Occupied listings are my specialty...I cannot imagine having inventory for 65 homes!  I just don't have the ambition for vacant listings anymore.

Margaret,
You made me gasp at the statement “with inventory for 65 homes.” I hope you have a lot of strong backs to help move it all around.  Love your living room make over on this house. Just excellent.

I enjoy vacant homes for sure.

Occupied properties are my favorite as well.  Developing relationships with the vendors and working with them to make their homes look like never before excites me.

Enjoy the holidays
