Yikes! Sorry you saw me NAKED!

I hope I didn't scare you away! :/

I know, there are way too many of us hanging around NAKED. ( <-----Did you just click that link) ;)

We think we're looking all cool with a little primping & fluffing (paint & carpet). Not!

Really......like the Doctor always say's "After you've seen one you've seen them all....they all start to look alike!"

YIKES!  No, no I'm different! I don't look like all the rest! BLAH BLAH BLAH

YIKES is right! Let's face it, hearing that you "all look alike" isn't going to help when you are trying to sell a Vacant/NAKED Home!

Sure you might think price is KING, however with all the Short Sales, Foreclosures & REO's currently for sale, what makes YOUR Listing stand out from all the rest?

Let's make your Vacant/NAKED Listing the QUEEN of the Valley by Home Staging! :)


So here I sit NAKED, a little awkward and uncomfortable.  :(

Why is everyone walking right past me? 

Come on....stop, hang out, get to know me!!

Oh.....you can't cause there is no where to sit and relax....and you feel a bit awkward.

I understand....I don't blame you. :(

HELLO! Well Look at me NOW!  I'm all dressed up and ready to GO!

LOOK.....now you can pull up a chair......sit........relax....stay awhile...........get to know ME! :)

Is it me, or do I see a little swagger ;)

Nice post.  A little polish and just right furnishing that home is ready to show.

Love it. Love it. Love it. Blah, blah, blah. Glad you psted some more pics. :-)

A little decoration, furniture and staging makes this place look "fully Dressed" 100% better.

Cindy - Thanks! Exactly!

Judy - Thanks GF! Your welcome. Now on to creating the Real Estate Show!

Steve - Thanks! I totally agree!  Some things should not be seen NAKED! ;)

Posted by Janice Sutton, Home Stager - Temecula Murrieta (1st Stage Property Transformations ) over 9 years ago

Very cute post Janice - and so true!  Those vacant houses or pictures of houses do start all looking the same!  Beautiful examples of your work!

Posted by Margaret Oscilia, Home Stager, Salem Oregon (Creative Concepts-Home Staging and Contracting, Salem Oregon) over 9 years ago

Janice, love your theme... would you make sure we have some of your info at the new building?

Posted by Terkel Sørensen, Realtor, 951.805.0773 , Bank owned and Short Sales (Real Estate Places) over 9 years ago

Janice -- your title is a real "Must open" eyecatcher LOL

Seriously, your post makes an excellent point.  Buyers want to imagine what it would be like to LIVE in the home, and having it staged will help them do that.  Who wants four vacant walls and nothing to see but flaws and imperfections?

Posted by Maureen Bray Portland OR Home Stager ~ Room Solutions Staging, "Staging Consultations that Sell Portland Homes" (Room Solutions Staging, Portland OR) over 9 years ago

Janice....love the humor in your post AND the TRUTH!!  Much better "dressed" than NAKED!!!

p.s.....I "Suggested" so more folks may see you Naked!!

Posted by Kathy Burke, S.F. East Bay Home Staging (Sensational Home Staging~~Danville, CA) over 9 years ago

Margaret - Thanks GF! Showing homes vacant does not do them justice! A totally waste of advertising $$$ in my opinion!

Terkel - Thank you so much!  Woo hoo! It would be my pleasure to bring you Home Staging Info to your new building! :)

Posted by Janice Sutton, Home Stager - Temecula Murrieta (1st Stage Property Transformations ) over 9 years ago

Maureen - Thanks and AMEN! LOL I thought I might trick a few people!  This blog was inspired by a Realtor that walked into a home we were staging.  She said she had brought clients in the week before and they couldn't wait to get out!  My hub said &quot;You viewed it NAKED? You have to bring them back!&quot;  She agreed and can't wait to bring them back.  The potential that Realtor's, Investor's and Stager's see can be different then what Home Buyer's see! It is our job to SHOW what can BE! :)

Kathy- Thank you! And thanks for suggesting....since I am fully dressed I have NO FEAR!!  Bring on the offers! :)

Posted by Janice Sutton, Home Stager - Temecula Murrieta (1st Stage Property Transformations ) over 9 years ago

Love it Janice!! And I'll be honest .. I was tempted to click the 'naked' link but I was a wee bit afraid what I would find at the end!

Great catchy way to really get the point across that homes show better fully dressed!

Posted by Heather Cook, Quality Home Staging (Rooms in Bloom Staging & Design Inc.) over 9 years ago

Hello Janice and you know with a title like this ... well I can't believe there aren't more comments!


Posted by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz over 9 years ago

From one naked stager to another-blah, blah, blah! I've been waiting for this post!! Love it!   Updating this home and then not dressing it seems useless. Your staging merchandised it perfectly darling!  Did you invite Kesha to the broker's tour?

Posted by Cathy Lee, ASP, IAHSP, RESA Danville, CA (CL Design Services Home Staging) over 9 years ago

I, for one, was disappointed...., expected something else -  good sales technique though.

Robert - Ha ha! I agree....where are all the comments!!  Ahhh forget the comments! Let's just STAGE Vacant Homes!

Cathy Lee - Thank you so much BSFF! I try my best! I couldn't resist adding the "Blah Blah Blah"...it will always remind me of YOU...in a GREAT way! :) 

Posted by Janice Sutton, Home Stager - Temecula Murrieta (1st Stage Property Transformations ) over 9 years ago

Dis - Alrighty then! Thanks! :)

Karen - Thank you so much Girlfriend! I LOVED meeting you in Vegas!  I wish we had more time together.  There were so many wonderful stager's to meet and so little time!  :))

Sally - LOL! Exactly this HOTTIE is ready to go!!! :D

Well, I would say if a house is in good shape, then it shows better naked (same as with a body?)

Hi Janice -- You are totally preaching to the choir here.  As a broker/owner, REALTOR, and ASP Realtor, I totally get the value it when it comes to staging, even more so for vacant homes.  Your work is exceptional!

Posted by Chris Olsen, Broker Owner Cleveland Ohio Real Estate (Olsen Ziegler Realty) over 9 years ago

I had to do a double take - WOW, what a great testimate to home staging.

Poor naked houses out there - they can't help it!  Shame on the sellers for not having them staged appropriately!  Shame on any agents who don't recommend staging!  Cute post, Janice!

Awesome post!  And the pictures show such a dramatic difference.  I have huge respect for home stagers and their talent.  It's not something I could do.

 Yes, I was trying to click on that link. Tease.

Yes, whne done properly, a little staging can go a long way.

Posted by Jeff Pearl over 9 years ago

Nicely done.  I think your photos really show what a difference someone like yourself can make.

Posted by Justin Dibbs, REALTOR® - Ashburn Virginia Homes for Sale (Pearson Smith Realty) over 9 years ago


 Nice post.  An empty house is so uninviting.  You have to put furniture in it to look half way attractive.  Best is to stage.  Your pictures are good advertising for your work. 

Posted by Anonymous over 9 years ago

This really makes a difference. The challenge is that a lot of short sale sellers, asset managers and/or listing agents just don't want to spend the money on distressed properties.

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) over 9 years ago

Hahaha I had to click the link, specially since you mentioned clicking it!  Nice post, and nice transformations on those homes.  it does make a huge difference!

This post was from me.  I forgot to log in again, after all the problems AR has had today.  I also wanted to say that your "key words" were hilarious.

Leilani - Thank you so much! We all need to be "dressed" before we go! ;)

Leslie - Thank for commenting!  Sure, it may show fine if it's in good shape however Home Buyer's need a little something-something so they can see what can be!

Chris - Thank you! You are a smart man and a step ahead of your competition when you have staging on your side!

Posted by Janice Sutton, Home Stager - Temecula Murrieta (1st Stage Property Transformations ) over 9 years ago

Very cute post Janice - wonder if this is the start of a new advertising campaign?  ;D


Billie - Thanks! What you did with this post is EXACTLY what we want Home Buyer's to do!  Take a DOUBLE take!!!

Chris - Thanks! Some times us Stager's have to pull out all the tricks to get you guys on-board! ;)

Julia - Thanks GF!  I know, I feel sorry for all the vacant homes out there :(  We can see the potential but so many cannot!  Hopefully, one day, NAKED homes will become a thing of the past!

Jimmy- LOL! Ok I am glad I got you to click! Now go Stage all your Vacant Properties! You won't be sorry!





Posted by Janice Sutton, Home Stager - Temecula Murrieta (1st Stage Property Transformations ) over 9 years ago

OK, with a title like that, it got me thinking about staging and nakedness.

Have you ever maybe put a blowup doll in the shower or tub to show how big they are? 

Or maybe put a blowup doll under the covers of a nice bed and really freak them out.  I'm sure it would make it a home that they would remember.

Positive proof that the right title reels us all in for a look at a post!  After a certain age, most of us look MUCH better with a bit of staging...

Posted by Irene Kennedy Realtor® in Northwestern NJ (Weichert) over 9 years ago

What a Creative Attention Getting Title to talk about vacant houses getting staged. Glad you got it staged so nobody has to be embarrassed!

Posted by Beverly Carlson, Abilene's Staging Realtor (Carlson Properties 325-721-2429) over 9 years ago

Janice - very clever using "naked" in your title! When people see the word "naked" we have to take a peek - just human nature! Congrats on being featured and this is an outstanding example of how  great staging can be the difference between sitting on the market (with carrying costs) and getting sold quickly. Beautiful job!

Posted by Karen Feltman, Relocation Specialist in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (Cedar Rapids/Iowa City, IA KW Legacy Group) over 9 years ago

This is a great title. I plan on using this as an example in my weekly classes. As of this comment, 344 people have seen the title of this post. 331 people have clicked on it to read the post. This means that 96% of the people who have seen your title read your post. That is amazing!

Janice I agree. Don't scare them with naked but DRESS IT UP. Lovely pics.

Posted by Gary Woltal, Assoc. Broker Realtor SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty) over 9 years ago

Janice - Thanks for that link.  I wasn't quite sure what naked meant - that wiki really cleared it up.  The staging AND the photos look great.  Having great staging done, and not having great photography work is kinda like going to a dinner party without your pants on ;-)

Posted by Don Corson (Coldwell Banker King Thompson) over 9 years ago

WOW!! Janice, I try to explain staging to an owner sometimes and the message just dosent get through. I believe in staging and I said wow to this. I would definitely show this before an after. Way to make a point. GREAT POST!!!

You win the "title of the day" award as given by....me.  Your points are valid ones - vacant homes simply don't show as well.

Posted by Kristi DeFazio, Colorado Springs Rea lEstate 719-459-5468 (RE/MAX Advantage) over 9 years ago

Great title, great content, very well done. Vacant homes are just simply not very warm and inviting, thus get passed over all the time. Sellers are wise to spend the extra money to have their vacant homes staged/dressed.

A very cleverly worded post, and excellent point too.  An enjoyable read !  Thank you for sharing these photos - the kitchen is now one that people would want to linger in.  Nice job.

Posted by Sandi Gerrard over 9 years ago

I completely agree with you. Staging in this market can be a very good touch that others probably won't do. The banks aren't going to pay for that and a seller doing a short sale proably won't want to. So Staging has added value in my mind.

Posted by Nathan Tutas, Your Central Florida Real Estate Expert (Tutas Towne Realty, Inc.) over 9 years ago

I could try using 'Naked' in my posts, something tells me I'm not getting as many hits as you.

Those pictures tell a great story of what staging can do you are drawn to stay on the picture with the furniture whereas the empty one makes you want to move on.

Nice job Janice.

While your "naked" title brought them into this post - it's your incredible staging that shines!! What an amazing transformation. 

Congratulations. Your home staging is being featured in the group Staging Before and After Pictures.


Posted by Kathy Nielsen, Atlanta Georgia Home Stager (http://atlantahomestaging.net) over 9 years ago

Believe it or not, I got a phone call last year from a man who wanted to know if I did naked staging. He meant really naked, without any clothes! Now why someone would want to see a sweaty naked woman pushing furniture around and folding towels is beyond me, but I guess it takes all kinds.

When I read the title of your post, I thought "Oh Lordy, he's looking for another naked stager". Glad that wasn't the case!

Beautiful photos, Janice.
