Each week after Russel posts his Golden Oldies, I read through them and reblog those that I can since it gives the original author some extra Google juice, a few extra points, and usually a great big smile. Smiles are important in today’s world.
I always disable comments on reblogs out of respect for the original author who did all the work. If you would like to leave a comment, click on the link below and leave your comment with Maureen who deserves your support with your comments.
Are you selling a home in Portland Oregon and want to make sure it appeals to potential buyers? Consider using a professional home stager to help you prepare your home to make it irresistible. We offer easy cost-effective home staging tips in the form of a home staging consultation proven to reduce market time or "hands on" staging to make sure your home shows beautifully for buyers.
Here's a home staging tip that we often share with our clients .... Color is one way to make a big impact for a small investment! Using color helps buyers make an emotional connection to a home. Color can influence a buyer's mood and bring back good memories as well.
In these Before & After photos you'll see how a bland, plain-vanilla space was transformed into rooms that appeal to both parents and kids ... the color makes it come alive and says "your child will love living in a room like this."
In the room above, using primary colors added life to a white, sterile space that the builder wanted to show as a child's room.
In the photo above, the listing broker asked us to stage this room as a child's bedroom since the target buyer was a family with young children (this home had only 2 bedrooms) and the home had been on the market vacant for nearly a year. Color helped the room come alive -- resulting in a quick sale after staging!
In the example above, we used the sheets in the comforter set to make an impromptu headboard as well as valances for the windows -- to add more color to this room. This home sold in just one month!
The room above was shown as a spare room with no imagination -- but adding color and a few props resulted in a room that buyers could relate to!
In this photo we used some colorful props to take advantage of a niche in a dormer bedroom; this home sold in just 14 days!
