Home Staging Needed In Virginia

August 21st, 2016 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Della who sent these photos of a Spring Grove, Virginia home.

It’s not a good sign when you see clog remover right next to the sink.  And there could be kids living in this house, so that becomes a safety issue too.

Hopefully that’s not a fly strip hanging from the light.

If they’re fishing for complements on home staging, they’ve come to the wrong blog.  What’s that saying?  Spare the rod, spoil the child?  More like, display the rods, spoil the sale.

Dark & Cluttered

July 29th, 2016 · No Comments

This home was sold as a short sale.  Short on being tidy.

Clutter free kitchen?  No dice.

Short on light.

More clutter and what-not in this room.

Wait.  If that’s the shower, why is the toilet paper holder in the shower area?  Maybe this is an old house that only has a bathtub and no shower?

Our reader Michael sent us these photos of a San Diego, California home.

Let’s remove the stuffed animal on the couch, the outdated poster of movie stars at the diner, the bicycles, the fan, the ladder, the vacuum cleaner, the fake logs, the Budweiser sign, the cords, etc.

The dust pan, the trash can…  And look at the dirty arms on that chair!

$670 Per Square Foot

July 10th, 2016 · 6 Comments

This San Diego, California home is only 978 square feet.  It sold recently for $655,000!  In this condition.  Thank you to our reader Michael for sending these photos.

What do we know about suggesting home staging and de-cluttering?  The house still sold despite this.

messy cluttered kitchen San Diego California home house for sale real estate photo

Imagine how much the house will sell for once renovated.  Would it get $1,000 per square foot?

We still recommend clearing off the clutter before selling.

Looks like it might have a basement apartment.  Must be a real treat when it rains.
