Staging a home for resale, sold in two weeks! (before and after)
Fortune | Design and DraperyOctober 11, 2012
We updated this traditional Cape Cod style home in Newport Beach for a client. Since she was selling the home we re-purposed most of her existing furniture and created a fresh look by adding a natural grasscloth wallcovering to the entry.

No wonder it sold so fast! Beautiful job! Staging is sooo worth it. You get the investment back and much more.

Thank you to everyone for your wonderful comments. Namrata03, Staging is editing, de-cluttering or enhancing / preparing a home visually for a sale so the buyer can imagine themselves living there... to better improve the chances of selling a home.

Beautiful job! That's what staging is all about. Preparing homes for a quick sale for the best possible price. Staging adds the "visual value" and the homes are viewed as "well maintained" and "move-in ready" so they stand out in a Buyers mind. Staged homes also have less reasons for Buyers to ask for concessions.

Just getting rid of clutter. Is huge. Rearrange furn, and let the light in is so important . I usually can stage a home, that doesn't need big changes in 24 hrs. Painting is number one way to change the whole look. I like the fresh flowers and big plants to fill empty corners. De clutter counters in kitchen and bathroom. Remove family pictures. People need to see themselves in the home. All pet items should also be removed as well as the pets during open house. And always have the owners gone. Buyers don't like to look at home while owners are there.
