This house had been marketed twice before—-once when occupied and once when vacant. The next realtor advised the home owner that staging might be helpful, especially since most home buyers start their search online.
The living room is the first room one sees when entering through the front door. Since the fireplace is the focal point, the furniture should be arranged in a conversation grouping to take advantage of it. Before staging, prospective buyers would inquire as to what to place in the niche to the right of the fireplace. This is easily solved by putting something into this niche that makes sense and is useful. Perhaps the next owner will install built-in shelving, book shelving, a media cabinet, or even a bar.
The family room faces south, letting in lots of natural sunlight through the patio doors. The furniture is placed in a conversational grouping, but allows for playing games (chess), while a person is at the desk viewing the computer. One can hang a TV above the fireplace for easy viewing.
This lovely sunroom looks out onto the 5th hole on the golf course. One could sit here all daay sipping iced tea and watch the various golfers sink their putts into the hole. Having comfortable seating makes this room a perfect spot to finish reading that best-seller.
A vacant executive home’s competition is a newly-built home, or perhaps a vacant lot that one can build their own house on. However, when staged with Premiere Home Stagers, an existing home is more likely to be purchased because the buyer can visualize the size and scale of each room and how to arrange their personal belongings. Call Premiere Home Stagers at 608-345-9396 before you list your vacant house!
