Before the home owner of this 1200 sq foot Washington DC condo reached out to me she said she was feeling completely overwhelmed by everything that needed to be done and felt like she would never sell her condo. Instead of staying in overwhelm she scheduled a consultation with me. After I walked her through everything that we could do with the budget and time she has, she said she felt relieved. In fact, she said the money she's spending on home staging is the best money she's ever spent!
She had a chat with a realtor and the realtor actually told her she needed to work with a stager so she could maximize her time on the market and get top dollar fast. Below are some of the before pictures.
The highest ticket redesign she's spending money on is the flooring. Besides herself she had two guy roommates and the carpeting took a lot of wear and tear. The 2nd item that will absorb a good portion of her budget is the guest bathroom. We'll be replacing almost everything in there. We'll finish off the kitchen with a neutral coat of paint and sanding the cabinets and painting them with a fresh coat of white paint and new hardware. The pantry, which is being used as a storage closet will become a lovely large pantry again and all rooms will receive a neutral coat of paint along with new carpet.
I'll finish things off by painting her front door a bright bold welcoming color and she'll be ready to go on the market with a dose of flair that will appeal to first time home buyers!
**Note: If you live in a condo community be sure to check your bylaws or your Home Owners Association to make sure you're able to paint your front door.
