Does Staging have to be modern in style every time?

You have seen before and after pictures how many times. The before is cluttered and has middle of the road furniture. The after is clutter free, clean, modern and looks like a model home. But does a Staging job have to be modern every time to attract buyers?

This property was virtually vacant except for a few pieces of furniture that were left there from when the now grown children had lived at home over 25 years ago.  I Staged the desk with the book and a floral. It created an intimate feel to the room which attracted buyers.

It sold in two weeks, $ 20,000 over list and set a benchmark price in the neighbourhood.  I prefer modern design myself but as a Stager you must work within your client's budget and what is on hand.

Professional Home Staging will market the features of your property to stand out from the competition every time.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.

Teenage boys are wont to leave piles of dirty, smelly clothes on the floor (marking their territory? ) LOL!! Just kidding. How do you get them to cooperate with the Staging process? I suggest to the parents that they offer some sort of reward to… more
