3 Days on the Portland Market, 4 Offers, Staged & Sold for Over Asking


The Portland real estate market continues to show signs of a rebound this year!  In August, closed sales were at the highest level for a single month in five years.  This activity has impacted our Portland home staging company, too.  Smart sellers realize that their home needs to look its best for a faster sale at the highest price possible.

We recently staged a beautiful new construction home in Portland for a repeat client who’s both a developer and real estate broker ~ his homes are always among our favorites because of the quality materials used and his strict attention to detail. When we were about to stage this Portland home, the seller told me he’d list it for a certain amount … but after seeing the completed staging, he decided that he’d list it for more because he felt that the target buyer would fall in love with the house due to its inviting appeal.

In the first three days, the seller received four offers over the asking price! He told me that he attributed the increased selling price to the staging, which he considered a fantastic return on a modest investment! Here are a few of our Before & After photos of this Portland home:
