Our Portland home staging company gets contacted by many different types of potential clients. Recently a Community Land Trust called to see if we would be interested in donating our home staging services for a new affordable housing development in our neighborhood that was targeted to families of moderate means. We haven’t provided a complimentary full staging in the past, but this idea sounded interesting, so we met with the Executive Director at the property.
We were happy to discover the wonderful vision of the Clackamas Community Land Trust which was to provide permanently affordable homeownership opportunities, to assist and educate people of low and modest income to become homeowners and to expand the inventory of permanently affordable, environmentally responsible homes.
This was an idea that we could get behind and wanted to support. We’d been looking for ways to give back to our community through our company and this seemed like the right fit. That it was in our neighborhood made it all the more appealing. And they are going to be LEED Platinum certified homes which is amazing considering that the homes are in the range of $115k to $135k.
We staged one model home for the 12 house development. It was considered the most challenging due to it’s floor plan. It is a one level home with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The small living room and open kitchen made it very challenging for potential buyers to imagine how to set up the space without professional staging.
Here are some before and after photos. The first two are taken from the front door looking left and right.
Because of the price point of the house, and the target buyers, we used furnishings and decor that were affordable and easy to purchase so people can see that they can live this way if they choose to. Just because a home has a low sales price doesn’t mean that it can’t look beautiful.
