If you are currently a SALEM OREGON HOME SELLER, or thinking seriously about putting your home on the market, I am sure you are aware of the fact that in the current SALEM OREGON REAL ESTATE MARKET your home must be the best home, at the best price. There is competition all around you, and your home needs to stand out as the BEST HOME in that price range!
Now, I am going to fess up right now…. In the past, I have not been a huge fan of home staging because my listings sold within a short time after putting them on the market. The last couple of years have shown a huge shift in the LOCAL SALEM REAL ESTATE MARKET.
I recently had the opportunity to get to know a local home stager, Margaret Oscillia, of Creative Concepts and Contracting, through some local blogging and social networking classes. After several months of my many, numerous questions, and viewing her before and after photos and results once she staged a home, I decided that maybe there was something to this “staging stuff”. I went ahead and booked her for two of my listings/sellers.
Here are some before and after pictures of one of my seller’s homes. This home began as a vacant home, but the great thing about a home stager is that they have several different levels of staging. You can do a full stage, or a partial or minimal stage. You can also start off with a consultation to see what kind of suggestions they have that can bring you a “Top Dollar” offer. Many times they can work with your current furnishings, just making minimal changes, and adding a little “pop” to the rooms.
So, you decide, which pictures are more likely to peak your interest, and cause you to pick up the phone to schedule a showing appointment with your Realtor?
