OVERVIEW If you have lived in a home a long time, raising kids, downsizing and moving is not easy. You have years of things you accumulated and stored that you no longer use or need or really even knew you had. The kids have gone on to school, left home and found their own place to live, but yet their keepsakes, old clothes, yearbooks, trophies and books somehow didn’t move with them :) Items from your parents, maybe siblings needing storage space have dropped off boxes, and other unknown things, have creeped into your home. You walk by some rooms day after day without even giving them a second thought. The good thing is that when you are preparing your home for sale, you come across the perfect opportunity to take a long, hard look at your things and spend time pre-packing, purging and sorting to whittle down your contents to what you only really want and need. So that by the time you sell your home, voila, the tough work is already done.
Most homewoners see value in doing some staging efforts before listing their property. The homeowners for this project had a very realistic and practical view of their property and their contents. After the Staging Consultation was completed, they quickly prioritized the key components of what would present the property in its best possible light. They put a lot of energy and effort into preparing their home and it paid off. Their were even some vacant spaces where rental art and furniture were brought in to fill in some gaps. This property was sold with multiple early offers, before listing, 23% over asking. How did Blossom Solutions help?
