It’s fun to play Solitaire. It’s also fun to stage homes before selling.

Before & After Home Staging Examples

February 4th, 2017 · 5 Comments

I listed a condo that was currently rented. Photos mean a lot to buyers. It’s important to leave a good first impression. My first impression of this condo was not good. I immediately got to work, moving and removing items before taking photos.

Before Kitchen. Looks cluttered. And the tenant had recently cooked sausage, leaving a greasy fry pan.

170204a

After Kitchen. I cleared the refrigerator and removed the knives, soap, cutting board, measuring cups, utensils, spatula, fry pan, towel, and iPad. You will notice that the microwave clock times do not make sense. After removing the items and moving on to the next room, I realized it would be nice to share before & after photos. I painstakingly replaced all items that were moved (so the tenant wouldn’t know). And then took the photo. Thus, the Before photo is actually the After After photo.

Before Living Room.

170204c

After Living Room. I removed the tray, the plate, the glass, the dog bed, family photos, the dog, paper towels eaten by the dog, and glass cleaner.

170204d

Before Office.

170204e

After Office. I removed the bicycle, golf club bag, and inflatable swan.

Boxing Day

December 26th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Today is Boxing Day in Canada. Last year, we posted a photo of a punching bag to celebrating boxing. But some Canadian readers said we got it wrong. This year, we’re posting photos of boxes. We hope we get it right this time. Happy Boxing Day!

This Phoenix home has lots and lots of boxes. They really know how to celebrate Boxing Day!

161226a

More boxes in the bedroom closet!

161226b

Toy collection pinned to the wall. Plus pin-up calendars. And a messy home office. No boxes?

161226c

Since they’re selling the house and since it’s Boxing Day today, they should box up all the books and movies.

Cluttered bathroom.

Portion Control

Everything tastes better on a Ritz, as long as there is portion control.

The other view of the kitchen.  Let’s Resolve to clean up this kitchen.

The black plastic was to stop bugs from entering but didn’t work?  The bug spray is ready to grab.

At least the curtains aren’t knotted.

Another view of the family room.  This home sale is a short sale, by the way.  The bank is sure to be sympathetic after seeing these photos.
