Staging To Sell: Transforming Small and Large Properties to Sell In Today’s Market

Staging and low cost updates can benefit homes big or small and our recent staging clients are proof! In the past few weeks alone, PJ & Company has staged two, million dollar homes — a custom, new construction property in Avon, CT and a 1949 colonial in Irvington, NY — a contemporary home in South Salem, NY and two smaller homes in Danbury and Hamden Connecticut.

Regardless of the style or size of a home, staging transforms a home to engage multiple buyers, and often brings top dollar to sellers. Below are examples of five very different properties we recently staged to help get these homes sold and for top dollar.

Irvington Living Room Before and After RS

The living room in this $1.9 million, 5,700 square foot colonial in Westchester, NY is perfect for entertaining but the decor was outdated and the furniture layout wasn’t inviting. Using much of the existing furniture, painting a modern wall color and adding modern accents, this room now looks like it should be in the pages of a magazine and will engage buyers both online and in person.

Avon Family Room Before After RS
This new home in Avon, CT is a beautiful custom built home, however, unfurnished it would leave buyers uninspired and unable to envision it as their home. Vacant homes also look smaller to buyers who will spend less time in the property during a showing. Our team staged key rooms to give buyers vision and showcase the space.

Danbury Living Room Before and After RS

This 1900 sq. ft. Danbury, CT home offers buyers a bright open living room.  Mismatched and dated furnishings, however, detracted from the beautiful architectural details and charm of the room. New furnishings define the space and give the home a modern, fresh look buyers will love.

Hamden Master Bedroom Before and After RS

This Hamden, CT home was another vacant property. The master bedroom pictured above is a huge room but has dated wallpaper and looks small when unfurnished.  We removed the wallpaper, painted a warm neutral color, installed new beige carpeting,  and added furnishings to showcase this move-in ready space.

South Salem Bathroom Before After RS

The master bathroom of this contemporary South Salem, NY home features beautiful tile but the custom double vanity was outdated and too expensive to replace. We suggested professionally painting it a modern, dark espresso finish. The transformation updates the entire space and offers buyers a move-in ready master retreat.
