DRAB TO FAB! STAGED LIVING ROOM, ABILENE, TEXAS.

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Carlson Properties 325-721-2429 0528582

This living room goes from drab to fab with a paint color change, and brightening with a fan light kit, and removing window valances blocking the natural light.  

 

My first impression of this living room was most likely the same as other potential buyers, dark and a little dreary.   Without furnishings to provide an anchor to the room, and light to brighten, and a neutral color to highlight the walls, the living room was destined to be forgettable, not what you want when selling.  

 

A homeowner decorator color can be perfect for living, but a hindrance for selling.  Although the green was a current decorator color choice, a lighter color was mandatory to lighten and brighten the walls.  Light and bright makes you money in a sale!

 

I am borrowing a saying I heard,  "decorating is optional; staging is mandatory!"  This living room is a great example of the necessity to stage to sell! 

 

A before photo is not available.  It was simply a dark, empty room.

 

Here is the photo that will help sell this home with fresh paint, bright, neutral paint, and inviting furniture and decor arrangement.

Beverly,
That is a great looking room. Buyers looking online will be motivated to ask to see it.
