After 210 days on the market without an offer, the homeowners called in Chicagoland Home Staging to work their magic. Within 5 days of the completed staging, there was an offer and the property closed 38 days later. Problem solved.
This is a small house that was a complete rehab by one of our regular investors. Buyers could not visualize the potential because house felt too tight for real furniture. The target buyer was a young family looking for a starter home in a desirable area. For people coming out of an apartment, many smaller houses feel huge to them: the storage, the garage, the idea of stairs – it’s all very exciting. Yet even they need help imaging how furniture would lo0k.
Check out this Master Bedroom. It’s not the best before picture, but you can see that it tells you nothing. Once staged, you can see that there is room for a Queen-sized bed and side-tables and a comfy chair!
