A Few Simple Changes can Help Sell Your Home Faster!


As professional home stagers in the Portland Oregon area, we’re often asked to help our clients prepare their home or listing for sale.  As part of our Portland home staging service, we include tips for preparing your home for the market – even before staging begins.

We recently consulted with a family whose elderly mother had moved into a senior community.  The house was immaculate but still had all brass light fixtures along with brass hardware and doorknobs.  We suggested replacing those brass items with brushed nickel, and the family also removed some of the dated furniture pieces that had served the family very well over the years, but wouldn’t appeal to the target buyers of this home — and we brought in modern furniture, art and accessories as needed to inject new energy into this house. 

The result was two offers in the first 48 hours! The sale will close this week and the seller’s family is happy their mother can now fully enjoy life in her new community.  Here are some Before & After photos that illustrate some of the changes that our consultation and home staging made, assisted by the family’s hard work taking care of easy cosmetic improvements …

The dining and living rooms got updated light fixtures and valances removed along with an infusion of color (we used the seller’s existing furniture as much as possible to reduce costs) …

The master bedroom is always one that we recommend be staged ~ buyers often think their furniture won’t fit, when the home is empty.  Staging it shows them there’s more room than they thought!
