Sun Valley Condo Sells for Full Price with All of its Furnishings at Open House!

By
Home Stager with Debra RowleyInterior Staging

This Sun Valley condo was vacant, and the owners needed to sell it quickly. The original walls were white, and the carpeting was forest green. It was necessary to re-paint the walls and replace the carpeting with warm tan tones to unify and expand the space. The kitchen cabinets were also painted, and the white and green counter tiles were replaced with Kashmir Gold slab granite surfaces. The owners had me purchase and install furnishings for the entire home located in the upscale market of Warm Springs. The first clients to arrive at the open house bought the condo for full price! They also loved the furnishings so much that they purchased the entire household in addition to the selling price. As an experienced stager and decorater, I chose furnishings to compliment the architecture of the home and its location. I have also found that by unifying wall and carpeting colors, a home increases in visual size and invites people inside. I believe that these home staging tips are key in preparing a house for listing.

Sun Valley is such a beautiful place. I've spent time there in both winter and summer, and each season has it's own beauty. What a lovely job on the staging; which is supported by the fact that the buyers bought all of the furnishings! Nice work!
