Staging consultations are one of the services that our Portland Home Staging company provides. A consulation is a cost effective way to ensure that your property will show at its absolute best when it goes to the market. The results we have seen from our consultations have been consistently positive with quick sales in an otherwise depressed market.
What is included in a staging consultation? Every aspect of your home will be addressed, both inside and out, to ensure that it is presented in the best way possible for potential buyers. This includes details such as furniture placement, minimizing personal items, wall color, cosmetic fixes, suggestions for finishes, cleaning tips, and many other small details that all add up to accentuate the positive features of your home so it is as appealing as it can be to the person who will buy your home.
Although some clients can only complete a portion of our recommendations (due to budget or other factors), others have the resources to be able to accomplish everything on the list.
We recently did a consultation for a condo in downtown Portland and we were thrilled with the results. Not only did we provide a consultation, but then returned to stage the unit after our list of recommendations had been completed.
Here are the results:
A cluttered entry is never a good way to welcome a potential buyer. The stark white walls were painted throughout with a light, warm tone.
Everything was removed except the coffee table. We wanted to showcase a large amount of seating in a relatively small space which was accomplished with 3 armchairs and a sofa. The sofa was moved back allowing for more space in the main living area. The rug anchored the space and connected the furniture and the colors worked together to highlight the architecture.
A reverse view which shows how the colors relate and of course, the kitty condo was removed. The art pieces on the wall are originals painted by Nik which showcased the height of the ceilings and kept the color palette consistent.
One of my favorite transformations. The dining room had a piano and a small table cramped to the side. Once the piano was removed and all the floors were refinished, an appropriately scaled dining table could be installed. There were previously three small sconces over the piano which didn't have the scale necessary, so we simply installed a dramatic shade on one of the fixtures to give a more elegant and formal feel.
One of our pet peeves is seeing the wrong type of stool at a counter/bar. It's important to place bar stools at a bar and counter stools at a counter to achieve the correct look. The new stools now give a feeilng of more space and a modern style which is more in keeping with the feel of the unit and its location downtown.
New carpet replaced old and the walls were painted. Using the existing bed and nightstands, we brought in a headboard, decor, and linens to finish the look.
By reconfiguring the bed and armoir in this room, it felt like the bedroom a buyer would want to invite guests to sleep in. There is a desk on the opposite wall since many live and work in their homes in this part of Portland.
When preparing your home to be listed, make the investment in a staging consultation from a professional home stager in your area. The small amount of money invested will reap huge returns.
