These are actual photos from the RMLS!
It's hard to believe, but these are two examples of how some properties in Oregon are being marketed. What about these pictures would make anyone want to come see these houses in person? It's hard to believe that a Realtor would put these blurry, unappealing photos on line when they are supposed to be experts at marketing a property. I don't even know what the picture on the right is supposed to be!
A home is typically seen as our most expensive asset, yet time and time again when sellers put their houses on the market, we see poor quality photos of empty rooms or cluttered spaces. What benefit is it to anyone if the home doesn't look its best?
When selling a car we get it detailed and make it shine, but then don't treat our homes the same way? When grocery shopping we look for the most appealing fruits and vegetables in the produce section, yet expect home buyers to have lower expectations?
Investing in professional staging guarantees your house will look its best and give it the competitive edge necessary in the real estate market.
Below are photos of a single family home in Portland, Oregon that Synergy Staging recently staged. The Master Bedroom particularly stood out to us when it was empty due to its cold feel and lack of any emotional connection. White walls never help a space feel warm and inviting, and the dark brown curtains became the focus of the room with nothing else to draw the eye.
Fortunately this seller understood the importance of having a home show its very best before putting it on the market. By staging the room with warm colors and helping buyers envision how they could live in the space, the room came to life and in turn, increased the value of the property. Listing the property after it was staged, with professional photos, resulted in a positive outcome. The home had an accepted offer only two weeks after it was listed.
