The following blog was originally posted by a local real estate agent Catherine Ulrey of Keller Williams. This Salem Oregon home is incredible – beautiful land and views too, but wasn’t attracting an offer. We were hired to advise on what could be done to improve showings and the marketability of this property.
This home had beautiful trim work and fabulous view. In the first photo – what’s the first thing you see? The valances – not the view! The new look is a lot sleeker and more contemporary.
The kitchen had a custom paint job with ivy above the cupboards and the walls were white. By painting the room a warm beige the cabinets look incredible, don’t they!
Small changes – big improvements! We love home sellers that are willing to try our suggestions!
Staging in Salem Oregon does make a difference, check out the pictures!
I am so excited to share these before and after pictures with you of a listing of mine! Margaret Oscilia recently consulted with my seller, since we have had several showings and no offers. While all of the suggested changes are not complete, the paint in the kitchen and dining room are, along with removing the valances. Margaret also suggested rearranging the furniture in the living room for a more open feel, since it is a large room.
So happy with the results!
