Vacant New Home on the Market since 2006, now Staged ~ Will Staging Help it Sell?

By
Home Stager with Room Solutions Staging, Portland OR

This beautiful new construction home in Lake Oswego, a lovely suburb of Portland OR has been on the market for nearly 4 years!  Now a foreclosure, our Portland home staging company was recently hired to stage it.  With about 3,300 sq ft the home has some wonderful features, but the previous online photos before staging indicated a couple of challenges which we felt could be overcome with proper staging.  We hope that this home will now be more appealing to the target buyer, and are crossing our fingers for a sale!
