This beautiful luxury home in Salem Oregon was listed June 1st.  It was vacant except for a few pieces of the owners furniture.

Throughout the best selling months,  the house wasn’t sold and in mid September Creative Concepts was hired to stage this stunning view property. (Listing price remained the same.)  Guess what???  While fall months bring fewer potential buyers, this home is under contract!

This living room had a lovely view! Potential buyers were distracted by how to arrange the long room with built ins. The positioning of the sofa didn't highlight the view or fireplace.

Rooms with angles sometimes can be difficult to imagine when vacant.
Why is it possible for rooms to look larger when furniture is put in the room? It's something we experience ALL the time.
