I know, you have great taste & a great eye! That is great! I love working with clients that understand the importance of preparing a property for the market. It is a match made in heaven!
What can make it HELL (OK maybe HELL is a little to strong) is when a client thinks all they need to do is add some accessories to help sell the property.
Sigh.....Do you want ANYONE to SELL your property? Then why would you let ANYONE STAGE your property?
Here is a recent Murrieta, CA Vacant house that was on the market for over a month that I went to look at to home stage:
Ok so it's not that bad. But it's not that good! Remember, when staging a home you want to ENHANCE not DISTRACT!
Here's how our Murrieta Home Staging team handled this kitchen:
I know we added some furniture to complete the space, but do you see what I mean? We want to ATTRACT not DISTRACT Home Buyers! This property received offer the 1st month after it was professional home staged!! :)
Ok here is a Master Bathroom in another property before we got our hands on it:
Again, it's not that bad. However, why would you want to cover up all the counter space? Don't we want Home Buyer's to SEE MORE rather then LESS?
Here is how our Home Staging team handled this Master Bathroom:
In this case, LESS is MORE. We didn't need to go MASTER crazy when staging the MASTER bathroom!
Keep Master Bathrooms clean and simple! Showing off the space not the stuff in it! :)
That's all for today! Thanks for letting me speak my Stager mind! :)
And next time you get the urge to add/throw some accessories into a home for sale.....ask yourself this "Do you REALLY think you can Stage?"
Stay tuned for Part II of "So you think you can stage?" :)
