First Time Home Stager - Part II

By
Real Estate Assistant with Triad Real Estate Photography

Hey Gang:

So this is another project I recently completed for a woman (different woman from Part I) who is considering becoming a Home Stager.  This was her first attempt at a vacant stage for her friend who is the REALTOR/Builder.  I believe she did an excellent job, what are your thoughts?

UPSTAGING YOUR HOMES

Again Andrew, this is a great idea.

In response to your wife's comments, the red towels are striking, however they don't work with the look in the bathroom.  In staging, we are going for a look that brings out the best in each room and stay with neutral colors as a general rule.

I would have gone with a chocolate brown, cream or even terracotta colour towels.  Plus the bottom of the towel should stop before the tile.

We de-personalize the houses we stage to avoid negative comments or reactions.  As a fellow stager mentioned, sports fans are loyal to their teams and may not appreciate the team featured on the shirt.   Besides, the shirt isn't necessary, nor are the other items on the bed.

I wouldn't say the counters are cluttered.  What is their provides colour; however the colour will still be effective with a few less pieces.

And I agree, the art work is hung too high and too far apart.

Overall, there is nothing wrong with what was done.  It is a great job.  The comments are from home stagers who focus on details, which may not be noticed by the average buyer.

Andrew, your photos are fabulous and we may not appreciate exactly what you do to make them so impressive.  It is the same with stagers, home buyers may not understand exactly why a stager's work is impressive.

Overall this project was well done. Re: comments on the Red Sox shirt - in keeping with the theme (and having been born and raised in Boston), I would have framed it and displayed it as artwork.

Sylvia, you are very right - the towels (nor anything else she did) would deter a potential buyer from making an offer on this property. As stagers we are more critical than the average person.

Angele you have talent and should keep with it. We all learn with trial and error. I would suggest that you browse before-and-after photos and you'll get a better idea on artwork and accessories.

Andrew - you are an artist. Gorgeous photos.
