EDEN ROAD VACANT HOUSE STAGING
STAGE TODAY. SELL TOMORROW.
Michael's house was on the market for a long time and had many, many showings but no bites. His realtor made a suggestion that he have the house staged. I viewed the house and saw several challenge areas that really needed to be addressed. They presented road blocks to potential buyers.
The living room features beautiful coffered ceiling and dark espresso hardwood floors. You really didn't appreciate it until the furnishings created a warm an inviting feeling to the room.
When I first walk into a vacant property I try to see it from the prospective buyers viewpoint. This master was very large and could be intimidating and could pose a challenge, what to do with the area with the slanted ceiling and what to do with the large wall to the immediate right.
I created separate living areas, one for sleeping and resting the other for relaxation and conversation. Now THAT'S a sweet master suite.
ITCHIN FOR A KITCHEN
Every home has a kitchen but not everyone homeowner knows how to create a warm and inviting room. A room that invites conversation and makes people want to linger. That is the job of staging. Taking a shell of a room and igniting the viewers imagination. Prompting them to say to themselves, I can easily imagine myself here.
You don't need to stage all the rooms in a vacant home. Typically I suggest main rooms such as kitchen, living room, dining room and master bedrooms. That said, we always accessorize the bathrooms in a vacant home stage to complete the job.
