From Blah To Ahhhhh!--Results Are In--SOLD! in One Day!

Let's Do This Again!

If you didn't see my original post (House-Goes-From-Blah), you may want to check it out! The owners (who I haven't met) were in Europe on vacation. I was a little concerned about what they might think upon their (surprise!) return, so I asked the Realtor for feedback. Here is what the owners had to say:

"Michelle and I did have a chance to see the staging and we thought it looked incredible.  They did a fantastic 

job brightening up the house, making it look much more fun, and inviting.  Michelle couldn’t say enough nice 

things about the house and has handed out about five of the cards to friends.  We took pictures of the house on 

our digital camera and were telling our family about our trip to Bellagio, Italy.  Someone saw the house 

staging pictures on the camera and said, “the pictures of the hotel where you stayed in Italy look amazing.” 

We had to tell them that is was the pictures of the staging in Ann Arbor.  The furniture re-arranging really 

opened up the living space and made the strange extra room in the master bedroom look more useful.  We 

think it looks fantastic."

 

 Master Before  Master--Ahhhhh

I think they must have been looking at the bedroom, so here it is, above.

 

I still need to get all the final statistics, like the sold price. I'll revise this post when I get that info.

I think making a room pop is sometimes all that is needed.  We all have clients that really can't see past the blah.

Hi Kathi, I love your bedroom photo. :)

What a beautiful bedroom.  I think the tray on the bed made the hotel comment worthy.  Love the colours.
