Staging a home is a powerful tool that can transform even the most outdated and lackluster properties into desirable living spaces. An excellent example of the impact staging can have is the incredible transformation of 76 Baybrook, a dated estate property located in Oak Brook, IL. Despite its outdated features, including worn-out wallpaper, and a four-decade-old kitchen and bathrooms, this unique house had tremendous potential waiting to be unleashed. Through strategic staging, the real estate agent successfully showcased the property’s hidden charms, resulting in increased buyer interest and multiple offers above the listing price.
Unveiling the Property’s Potential
Designed by acclaimed architect Joseph Plepel, this iconic estate spans nearly 10,000 square feet. With five bedrooms, a spacious main floor primary suite, a stunning family room, a sun-lit office, and four second-floor bedrooms, this property offered a wealth of space and architectural character. However, its true potential lay hidden beneath the dated interior finishes.
The Staging Solution
Recognizing the unique attributes of the property, our team devised a staging plan to highlight its possibilities. The first step was to address the outdated elements that could deter potential buyers. To demonstrate the versatility of the property, the staging team focused on showcasing the open layout and architectural features. The staging team created an airy and modern ambiance, with carefully chosen furniture, modern decor, and tasteful accessories, that allowed prospective buyers to envision themselves living there.
Home Staging Results
The impact of staging was evident from the moment the property was listed. The real estate agent recognized the enhanced value of the home and increased the listing price to $1.2 million. The response was overwhelming, with four offers received on the first day, all surpassing the list price. This success story demonstrates the power of staging to attract buyers, elevate perceived value, and generate a competitive bidding environment.
This success story serves as a reminder that staging can be a game-changer, breathing new life into homes and capturing the imagination of potential buyers. Whether a house is perfect or in need of renovation, staging has the ability to showcase its true potential and maximize its market value.
