Staging certainly helps any home. The million dollar home, with its specialized client, absolutely demands it.
I've always enjoyed reading Melissa's posts. She is outstanding in her field and always has good information.
So, you have a million dollar listing? Does it look like a million bucks? If not, I can guarantee you few will want to buy it! This is a home that we recently staged. Tell me, does this look like a million bucks?
This is the primary living space of a nearly million dollar home in Seabrook Island, SC. Looking out the windows you may notice that it is on a golf course, which has a lot to do with it's price tag. The built ins and the fireplace are great. Tell me though.... which of these sets of photos (above or below) looks more like a million dollar home?
The targeted buyer for this home will be a retired couple. They will likely use this as a vacation or second home. The colors for staging were dictated by existing colors already in the home (which will be discussed in another blog).
The agent for this property hired us based on two other homes we had recently staged. They were impressed at the transformation and the overall differences in showing the homes had on potential buyers. Staging is not only about adding size and scale to a room, which are vital, but also making a home feel like its list price. In this case, it needs to look and feel like a million bucks!
