This house is in great shape, clean and well-designed. The homeowners recently uploaded their photos, listed it on the MLS, and waited for the phone to ring.
Home Staging is the difference between the “before and after” photos. Before, the focal point was the TV instead of the fireplace. Also, you make a barrier by putting the sofa back against the room’s entrance. Most prospective buyers will not cross this barrier, and thus cannot visualize themselves as living in this space.
With younger children, this family needed a play space. This room could be used as a den or an office because of its location off the front door and having French doors to close it off.
Some of the out-grown items were stored away for the next garage sale, but the remaining items are still neatly stacked behind the futon. Star wars items and action figures are spotlighted in the curio cabinet that was repurposed from the dining room. You can still watch the TV tucked in the corner.
The kitchen, the main living area, and the master bedroom/bath need to be well-appointed so that the prospective buyer can feel pampered and make an emotional connection.
A comfy chair in the corner with matching tables with lamps and a focal picture ramps up the softness in this space. Then add the master bath, and “voila,” a master bedroom retreat.
Even the kids’ bathroom looks cheery and fun!
Adding some softness and repositioning some furniture is all that was needed in this nicely-appointed home. Call Premiere Home Stagers for a consultation at 608-345-9396.
