Formal Living Room Before Staging
A potential buyer would have walked into the front door and within 5 seconds made up his/her mind whether or not this was the house for them. The room was full of mauve furniture which immediately appeared dated and dull. Potential buyers have a hard time seeing through the sellers "stuff" in order to visualize their furnishings fitting in the same space.
Formal Living Room After Staging
We found more up to date and neutral living room furniture in the den. We simply transferred from one room to the other without crowding the space so the potential buyers could see more walls, floor space and a neutral palette of color. It really doesn't look like the same room! We didn't even spend a dime!
Master Bedroom Before Staging:
By the time potential buyers make it upstairs, there is no doubt that there is a good deal of living space, and what a huge master bedroom! However, when furniture is large, bedding is outdated, and personal belongings are out for everyone to see, it is a distraction for most buyers.
Master Bedroom After Staging:
We simply flipped over the dated comforter, removed the tread machine, and replaced it with a couch found in another crowded room utilizing the area as it was intended. We also tucked away the owner's personal collection of perfume bottles, books and nick-nacks. Before you knew it, with a few simple changes, the room looked fresh and updated, cozy and inviting!
