This Ain't Your Mother's 1950's Rambler! Home Staging and Redesign in Minneapolis, MN

I got the opportunity to work with a contractor who bought this 1950s Rambler in it's original condition and totally updated it for today's buyer.

Do you remember the Rambler's from the 50's. Small chopped up rooms? This developer took down walls, opened up the room, opened the staircase, and put in 21st Century Upgrades.

First of all check out this back-splash!

The biggest positive feedback the investor received was how open the home was.

So, staging this vacant home meant keeping the openness but defining the space so the buyer could see how the furniture would be layed out.

The rooms actually look bigger now.

Your eye now goes directly to the stunning fireplace instead of getting lost in the empty room.

Can't you see  yourself cozing up to this fire with a book!

This home is located on a golf course in an incredible neighbor in St. Louis Park, MN and I don't think it will be on the market long!

Hi Shar, I seem to remember reading a stat once that empty houses take approximately 16% longer to sell and usually sell for about 10% less than an occupied home.  Does anyone have up to date figures on that aspect of selling a home?

Seems you have waved your magic wand again and created a simply inviting home. I can see a buyer wanting to move right in. Love the cozy effect you have created by that fireplace.
