Redesign - gets 82 year old her price in just 3 days! B & A's

In case you were facsinated by an earlier blog I shared from a home staging associate on Active Rain, here is another with wonderful views of the before and after.

Home Stagers come up with ideas even the best of us Realtors miss.

And don't forget, first impressions are everything.

Despite meeting with some resistance, Home Harmony was able to preform a little redesign magic and win over it's 82 year old homeowner.

The owners daughter had talked to her about all the things we might do to change her home. The agent, having worked with us many times, told the owner she placed her full confidence in us but despite everyones efforts we still had a little trouble getting our way. So as good stagers do ... we worked within our limits and still delivered.

 The owner wanted nothing to do with us making "more holes" in the walls. Even though we told her they would not show (we would hang the pictures to cover them) we were still not permitted to lower the artwork.  So, we went to work doing what we do to make things as perfect as possible. She would follow us around through the home and sometimes questioning our decisions but all in all at the end of our day she was very pleased with the outcome.

Best of all,  an acceptable offer came in within 3 days of our staging!  Now our "new friend"  has promised to share her experience with other seniors in the community which I am sure will help reassure others having to do the same in the near future and ensure us some more senior clients.
