This is typical of many busy families. Not exactly picture perfect!
Before our staging expert came in, this kitchen looked messy and cluttered.
By removing many distractions, the kitchen is much more inviting and ready for the photo shoot!
This property received showing requests the first day it was listed. Within a few hours of being posted online, proving the importance of first impressions! No home should ever be photographed without being properly staged. My personal pet peeve is looking at the trash can 90% of homeowners have in the kitchen. It is not a decorative element and should NEVER be shown online.Whether you are a Realtor or homeowner, we have a staging package that can work for you! From our simple and easy to understand home seller do it yourself checklist to our Realtor gift certificate program.
