I’m so proud of all our ASPs®. You truly make a difference for so many real estate professionals and consumers, and I’m proud to share a story of yet another successful Staging® project.

Sharon Soons, ASP® Home Stager® & Professional Organizer of Streamline U. serves the Metro NYC and the Hudson Valley and she recently sent me a description of a Home Staging® project she did for a 4-bedroom home in Stormville New York.

Here’s Sharon’s story:

“We started with this house by going through the ENTIRE house, including the large basement and all closets.

 As it turned out, the owner had a ton of great things we would end up using throughout the house.

 Since the seller was a busy executive and traveled quite a bit, not a whole lot of “moving in” ever happened, without a lot of clutter. The only painting I recommended was below the chair rail in the front sitting room/dining room. Then, luckily, combining her cool linens, art and objects with my inventory worked out beautifully. Window treatments and new furniture arrangements made a huge difference and showed this house in the best possible light. Overall, we managed to Stage® a large house on a tight budget in just a few days. The owner kept wishing she had called me when she moved in!

Before staging, the master bedroom sort of said nothing. With staging it clearly says stylish retreat – more importantly, it invites potential buyers right in to see more. A cozy nook in the master bedroom was just storage before staging. Now it’s clearly more square footage – exactly what buyers want!

A huge master bath needed some de-cluttering and some tweaks to show its best… Now the space is clean and every buyer can imagine a bath with a view. Artwork is important in every room! The family room has a great window and fireplace…  and with some re-arranging, new art, and de-cluttering it shows like the versatile room it is. 

Empty rooms don’t inspire…  Staging shows buyers what’s possible.”

The result?

This home had an accepted offer after less than 8 weeks on the market, way better than the local on-market average in fall 2010,” said Sharon.
