Advice Re: Vacant stage, NO FURNITURE!!

This is a first for me, staging without a budget for rental furniture.  It's a short sale, they are desperate to sell and have NO MONEY for furniture rental.  The realtor is paying my consult fee.

There are no window coverings, not even shower curtain rods......I am planning to just do window treatments, bathrooms, towels, decor.....paintings, mirrors, plants.....I may be able to get an inflatable bed for the master....

 

Has anyone staged so sparsely before?  How did it go?

 

Thanks!

Natascha

It's the same as doing a vignette for model homes. If you can get some cheap but nice looking chairs to toss in a corner with a throw on it. Make sure artwork is placed to take up as much wall space as possible and color..color..color! Good luck!

Natasha, thanks for the clarification.  I too have made similar allowances and just made it work.  Unlike you doing it for a friend, I did it for an agent that ended up just taking advantage of my giving and it continues to bite me in the backside to this day.  One more month and by my choice she's out of my life. Hurray! 

Hope it sells quickly for you and for her.
