For many homeowners, finding ways to boost a home’s value without spending a ton of money can be tricky. There are several small projects you can take on that will improve your house in terms of aesthetic and updates. Though with some of these, there is no guarantee that the value will increase should you decide to sell down the road. Bigger projects require funding, not to mention quite a bit of time and effort, and you might need to hire a contractor. Fortunately, there are some easier ways to boost your home’s value, such as creating curb appeal.
Recently, we staged a luxury Clyde Hill home after another stager’s design failed to muster any interest. The staged home sat on the market for several months until the sellers finally decided to take it off. When they wanted to put the house back on the market, they started afresh with our company. After just 8 days with our staging design, the sellers accepted an offer for their $3.5 million house. Why did the house prove stale the first time it was on the market but then sell so quickly the second time around? As the home was staged both times, this house doesn’t fall under the usual case: how staging sold a home that first went on the market with the seller’s personal furniture. So if the home was staged both times, why the big difference in results? It all comes down to effective home staging.
Selling your home can be one of the most stressful times of your life. There are so many things you have to check off your to-do list, and it is easy to lose track of some of the overwhelming amount of tasks at hand. Therefore, when you hire us to stage your home the last thing we want is to add further chaos. Instead, we do our utmost to relieve you of some of the stress by making sure you know you are in good hands. We truly value our clients, and it shows in our dedication to our work. We accomplish this by making it personal in our home staging.
As a boutique home staging company, we take the time to pay attention to the details of each of our projects. As we design each stage from scratch, it allows us to draw some of our inspiration directly from the homes we stage. Therefore, embracing a home’s unique features is something you can expect from our work. This way your stage will look truly unique because our designs are created specifically for your homes. An example of how we do this is our recent stage in the Roosevelt neighborhood.
We love staging high-end homes as well as Midcentury homes, so staging this Midcentury Laurelhurst luxury home was a delight. When we originally toured this home it lacked life and personality. We staged each room in a way that brought energy into the spaces and showed off a luxurious lifestyle for this Laurelhurst stage.
Earlier in the year, we had the pleasure of staging this gorgeous Magnolia new build. For this stage, we wanted to keep things light and neutral to emphasize the freshness of the new build. We staged the home in the transitional style for a soft look. However, we married the transitional design with some modern touches to go well with the contemporary architecture.
This week’s staging spotlight is about this compact yet charming condo near Aurora. In our recent posts, we’ve been showing you a lot of high-end homes. This is because many of our projects so far in 2018 have been on the larger scale. However, as a boutique staging company, we make sure to put the same energy and effort into our custom designs for every project no matter the size. For this Aurora studio condo, we used the unique features of the home to inspire our design.
To complete our series of blog posts on our 2018 interior design predictions, this week we will discuss eclectic design. Designing your home in the eclectic style is probably the most fun because you throw a lot of rules out the window. If you are wanting a unique look, are a couple with different tastes, or if you love the aesthetics from multiple eras and are having trouble choosing this is probably the right interior style for you.
At the beginning of February, we had the pleasure of staging this hip Wedgwood Midcentury home. The sellers had recently renovated it and we wanted to target young couples buying their first family home. We staged in an affordable style that mimicked some Midcentury elements but looked updated and hip to appeal to young homebuyers.
