Staging a Home for Real Estate Marketing
We love when homes are staged and ready for photography! Walking into a staged home, I immediately feel at home and at ease. There is a huge difference between an unstaged, cluttered home and one that has been all cleaned up and decorated to showcase the home. We work with lots of stagers in Anchorage and Wasilla and have found several that we really like. We even have some Realtors that do their own staging, and do a good job at it. Here is an example of a home that was staged by one of our clients - Lora Nordstrom of Jack White Real Estate in Anchorage Alaska.
Home for Sale: 1706 Stanton Ave. Anchorage AK 99508
I have been on multiple photo shoots with Lora and have been very impressed with the attention to detail she gives when preparing a home to be marketed. We really appreciate her dedication and we love when we get to photograph one of her homes.
Adding some green and some color to this furniture really finishes off this room. It doesn't take much and you can definitely overdue it, but adding some decorations really brings this area to life.
Before and After
Here are some examples of before and after the staging. The photos also so the difference between an average Real Estate Agents photos and ours.
This is what the home looked like when Lora showed up for the appointment. This photo was taken with her iPhone, which is actually very popular for MLS listings.
Another great example of room that with a little bit of help can really stand out. In this case Lora added a new bed spread and pillows as well as a piece of artwork that tied in with the colors. Add some lighting and you now have a great looking bedroom photograph.
And the last example shows just a bit of cleaning up, removing towels and adding some plants to the scene. With a wider angle shot and some good lighting you can really see and get the feel for this Master Bathroom now.
