Home Staging Tip: Simple “Tweaks” Can Make a Big Difference in how Buyers Feel About Your Home
From previewing the online photos to an in-person viewing, buyers are making judgments about your home ~ everything from whether they can see themselves living in it — to whether it’s well-cared for, clean, and big enough for their needs. We recently staged an occupied home in Beaverton Oregon that had been on the market for several months but had no offers. The sellers selected a new listing agent, and also agreed to stage the home to make it more appealing to their target buyer.
This home was already decorated very nicely, had great paint colors and was immaculate … however, some of the rooms just needed a few “tweaks” to make them better. See if you agree that the changes we made helped this home “show” better … Here are some Before & After photos.
The great room had a large sofa blocking the entry to the room. By moving it over to the large window, we opened up the main floor space in this room, and also caused buyers to notice the great views this home has.
The dining room was OK, but it needed just a few tweaks to make it memorable to buyers.
The kitchen has great features, but looked a little too plain in the ‘Before’ photo so we added a few accents.
The master bedroom was well decorated, but a wider angle & a few added items helped it shine.
