Will Staging a 1936 Portland-area Cottage Help it Appeal to Buyers?


Our Portland home staging company recently staged a charming older cottage in a nearby suburb.  The seller had already moved to their new home and the listing agent realized that a vacant home holds little appeal for potential buyers.  When a buyer walks into a vacant home they often have a difficult time figuring out how to use the space, and staging successfully addresses that issue.

It’s also true that when a home is vacant, small imperfections in things like paint or flooring may become items to focus on, since there’s nothing else to look at.
