We live differently than what we list. I encourage my clients to make a mental / emotional break from their house once they make the decision to sell. Many memories are made in your home to emotionally tie you to it, so I tell them…”Have one last party and celebrate the time you had here…… because tomorrow we are setting it up for someone else.” When you start with that kind of mindset, then when “Irresistible Homes“ comes in to stage (did I just invite myself???), you are open to the changes that are suggested and are proven to work.
This home I’d like to highlight is a fantastic house….the Sellers built it themselves and put a lot of thought into their decisions. With just a few changes here and there, this house shone.
Thank you to the home owner, Emily who shared her pictures on this project. The “before” pictures are the previous MLS listing pictures (as taken by Emily). Emily also took the after pictures.
Here’s what she had to say about “Irresistible Homes”:
“We originally listed our newly built house and declined the offer of a stager, feeling our house would show well as is. After four months on the market with only a handful of showings and no real interest, we changed directions. With a new Realtor at the helm we happily accepted her offer to hire a stager to give our home a new look. With Karen’s vision we were able to transform our house into a show piece, elevating its quality workmanship to the next level. We wouldn’t hesitate to promote Karen with her relentless attention to detail and eye for simple beauty.”
