I recently sold a condo in South Boston that we initially tried to sell with the tenant still occupying the home. Although, the home was neat and very clean it did not show very well. The tenant was half moved out so the home was void of any personality. I suggested to the seller that we stage it. Initially, we were going to sell it and just set up beds in the bedrooms. THEN I met with a stager who set me straight as well. She used flowery words like it needs to be a happy place, you want it to be happy. It needs to drawer you in...well she is 110% correct. The photos below show a condo which is great property and how it was transformed through staging. The home went under agreement within in 5 days of being staged after sitting on the market for 2 months. The sellers saved themselves a hefty price reduction.
Check out some of these photos!
So, many home buyers came in and said that the 2nd bedroom was too small etc. and you can't fit a Queen Size bed...WRONG! It did not matter how many times I told them that it could or even if I traced it out...buyers still could not envision it. The proof is in the pudding...or should I say photos...
