This property had been on the market before staged by another stager and it was not moving. Our clients reached out to us for an evaluation and staging consultation.  During the staging consultation we touched upon the preparation as well as the presentation aspect of getting a home ready for the market.

Our Solutions

While touring the home we determined that not only did the staging of the home not reflect the price point of the home; as a matter of fact because things were done so poorly and in the wrong scale, most likely the not so flattering staging devalued the property in more ways than one.

In addition, we determined that the home needed to not look so dated, and that the easiest way to give it an on-trend look and feel would be to paint the whole house a warm and neutral color that worked well with the current trim color. We were able to save our client major dollars going this route as it is not inexpensive to trim paint. Conversely having different wall colors in different rooms, visually chops up the house and makes it appear like it is not big enough.

The trick is to find the right paint color that goes well with the current trim color and that is also on-trend and reflective of the style of the home.

Since our lead designer, Keti Abazi, is a certified true color expert, we wasted no time choosing the right color for the home.

We painted the kitchen cabinets, some mill work in the living room and the wet bar the same color as the existing trim and we also updated all the fans and fixtures throughout the home to achieve more of a new traditional/transitional look and feel.

Once all the renovations and the make-ready work was compete we also  professionally staged the home using our own inventory and props, reflective of the price point of the home.

Our hard work paid off. The house has gotten the much needed traction  and appeal that it lacked.
