Why We Loved Staging this Portland Oregon LEED Home ~ Before & Afters
What can I say? Staging this home was a dream! From my first visit with the very engaging and knowledgeable owner to the final day of staging, the entire process was such a pleasure. Why? Because the owner knew from the beginning that staging this home would help complete the vision that he had for it. For maximum appeal, staging adds the inviting touches that allow potential buyers to mentally “move in” to a home when they’re viewing it.
This is a special property ~ Oregon’s first “gut-rehab” LEED Platinum home. It’s as Green as can be! I’ll do another post on more “Green” features of this home, but this post is to show a few Before & After photos. This home was built in 1957, but was taken down to the framing for this complete “gut rehab” which resulted in a two-level ranch home with an appealing modern design by Paolo Design Group in Portland. Our team got busy and staged this home to help highlight it’s many Green features!
