For potential buyers, it’s all about that first impression! If you can impress them on the very first showing, you’re halfway there. Here at Home Staging Expert®, we cannot stress enough how important that is.
Luckily for his clients, Realtor® Michael Hughes of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty in Boulder, Colorado, knows just how to impress! After taking our workshop with HSE Certified Trainer Joanna Gyrath and earning his Home Staging Expert® Certification, Michael hit the ground running and we could not be more pleased with his home staging success!
While most Realtors® would just assume that a home this well-appointed would require very little effort to prepare for market, keep in mind that designing to live vs. staging to sell are two different things. It’s all about the positive impact those rooms will have on a potential buyer at first glance! By opening up the floor plan, drawing the buyer’s eye directly to the features, and enhancing those features even more, Michael was able to transform this beautiful home into a desirable listing.
Thoughtfully edited furnishings allowed him to create more visual square footage, offering a much easier flow that is fully accessible to anyone wanting a closer look. The new arrangement also helps to draw the buyer’s eye directly to that gorgeous fireplace! Accessorizing with artwork in softer tones over the mantel gave this entire feature a subtle but unmistakable boost without grabbing too much attention on its own. And the placement of the now distinctly noticeable red upholstered chairs liven up the entire space and bring the balcony doors into plain sight, giving potential buyers a glimpse of what lies beyond.
This is what staging can do for your property, and this is what Michael can do for you! A top tier real estate professional with local expertise and global connections, Michael Hughes is known for his integrity and an exceptional level of service to both buyers and sellers in the Boulder community. His outstanding skills as a Realtor® and Home Staging Expert® Certification are sure to leave not only a positive first impression, but a lasting one.
