Celebrating Our 3rd Anniversary with Two SOLD! Homes

RE:STYLE Home Staging and Redesign Just Celebrated Its 3rd Anniversary!

And we did it by de-staging one house yesterday, and we'll continue the celebration by de-staging a second one tomorrow! Again, proof that staging works!

Here are some Before and After photos:

House #1--Ann Arbor, MI

This house was lived-in when I first went for the consultation. But after discussion with the client, we all realized that they would have a difficult time living in it in a staged condition. So, they agreed to temporarily move into an apartment, as they were on their way from Michigan to Washington, D.C. anyway. This house would have sold in the first 2 months, as the client got multiple offers. However, they declined and waited to see if they could do better...we won't go there!

By using a lot of their furniture, repositioning it and mixing in some from RE:STYLE's inventory, we were able to provide a cost-effective solution.

We painted most of the house in warm, golden tones to compliment the wood floor (that you can see, now) and to make the white fireplace mantle and surround, and the crown molding, stand out as the features they are!

We transformed the Master, as well, using an inflatable bed and a free-standing screen. Now it looks warm and inviting!

House #2--Dexter, MI

This was a unique house, and it had some unusual spaces. The Living Room looked very long and narrow, and the kitchen had some custom tile that may not appeal to everyone. We staged "around" the tile, and even found matching flowers!

Here's a couple close up views:

The bedroom also ended up looking very serene ("after" only--we all know what an empty bedroom looks like, right?)

"I wanted to let you know that we wrote an offer and got it accepted on the home you so BEAUTIFULLY !!!!!! 

Staged on Mast road for (agent's name)!  You did such a great job that my client wants to take pictures today during the inspection so she can remember how great it looks. 

Thanks!  It soooooo works! " 


Now, let's start our 4th year with another sad, lonely vacant that needs to be staged to sell!
