Sometimes the Best Testimonials Come from a 7-yr. old … Before & Afters
New clients recently hired our company to stage a vacant home in Hillsboro Oregon, just east of Portland. The property had been an abused rental, so when I first viewed it, I was able to provide the sellers with advice for easy cosmetic fixes, paint colors, etc. They worked on the property for quite a few weeks, taking care of home repairs including replacing windows, reconfiguring the family room, and improving curb appeal.
When the staging was completed, I received a wonderful email from my client. In part, it said “This house looked drab before and had been an abused rental, so we were all very sick of dealing with it. My 7-year-old would complain non-stop every time we had to go over there. As soon as he saw it staged, he said “I don’t want to leave” and “I think we should just move in here.” 🙂
Here’s how the living room looked on my first visit (old wood stove insert, stark white paint, empty) …
After adding Devine paint on the walls & a new window, removing the insert in the fireplace, and staging …
The dining room & family room were spacious but needed small fixes & Staging to make them buyer-friendly
The master bedroom was stark white, cold and uninviting. Painting & staging it made it much warmer …
So if a 7-yr. old boy likes the home so much now — hopefully a buyer will find it just as irresistible!
