Portland Home on the Market for 7 Months ~ then Staged & Sold in 10 Days
In the Portland real estate market, we continue to see that staging your home helps it sell faster when these other factors are in place:
- It’s priced right
- It’s in good condition (and staging is part of that, when done properly)
- The listing agent uses effective marketing methods to capture the target buyer
Our Portland home staging company was recently hired by the Trust Department of a local bank to stage a Vacant home in a lovely 55+ community that features a golf course and lake. The listing agent told me that the single family homes that make up this community usually sell in less than 30 days; however this particular home had been lingering on the market for seven months. It was a bit dated, but what it needed most was some life and color added to the white and beige paint, carpeting, tile, etc. We love to take on challenges like this!
After being on the market for seven months, this home had two offers within 10 days and is now Sold!
Entering the house, here was the view Before
Staging added a lot more interest to the entry area & encouraged buyers to come in to see More
This formal living room was lifeless Before
Staging showed buyers that this room is more spacious than it appeared to be, when vacant
Before, the family room looked just “OK”
Staging this room highlighted the fireplace and the beautiful wood floors
Before, the master bedroom is just a square box
Staging enhances the bedroom’s potential for a better buyer experience
A few more ‘After’ shots showed buyers how they could live in this home & and once again, the staging did its job!
