Paseo Del Sur | 2019
For this occupied staging project, I started with two recommended changes the sellers could make while living in the home. The first was to address a couple of deferred maintenance issues — this makes the home “move-in ready” eliminating hesitation on the buyers’ part. The second was to paint a few rooms, creating a neutral color scheme that not only provided continuity but also appealed to a wider variety of buyers. When staging began, we removed excess artwork and furniture then arranged the remaining furnishings to give each room a clean, open feeling. After that, each room was cleaned and organized, removing personal items that would distract a buyer. Easy updates like a few new rugs, bedding, and accent pillows along with real flowers gave the home a fresh look and added pops of color. I also made sure all windows were freshly cleaned, allowing natural light to bathe the rooms so they felt warmer and even more spacious.
