Here are some wonderful before and after pictures for a new listing in Garland, TX.
In the Dining area, there is a sitting window, however, you cannot even see it. Many people love sitting windows because you can put a padded top on it and use it for reading or as part of your kitchen table. So, I had the sellers remove 2 of the chairs to open up the space more, and now you can see the sitting area when you walk in. They were also using the Dining area as a holding place for toys, and those were put up. Place mats were also put up to give the table a very clean look.
The main transformation in the Kitchen was removing all the pictures and artwork from the fridge, which you can't really see in this picture. As you can see from the before picture, the sellers utilized all the counter space. However, when a buyer looks in the kitchen, they don't see any counters at all, so away went everything except a couple of things for accent. You can actually picture yourself cooking a full meal with all that space now, can't you?!
This room is almost self explanatory... Yes, this was the main place the kids played and watched TV. The sellers were very worried about removing the gate from the fireplace and the TV as they thought the kids would get into trouble, but they've actually been very good. The only thing that interests them are the buttons on the TV, but as long as they're leaving the fireplace alone, we're all good. Also, the couches didn't match, so I had them buy slip covers to neutralize the room. It's a little too neutral now, but that's better than too much "stuff" that you can't see around. Also, I advised on new carpet. They got it changed the day before my Before picture, but it was an old 80's blue, and now it's a neutral Frieze.
The Master was a little busy. One of the easiest things I had them so was flip the comforter over so it was a solid color instead of a pattern. It's a much cleaner look. I also had them move all nonessentials from the room. What you can't see is the furniture behind where I'm taking the picture was moved walls and opened up quite a bit.
Nice changes, don't you think? All this for ONLY $143k!!! Plus, a pool!
When you list with me, I don't just put a sign in your yard and stick it in the MLS. I help you stage it in order to bring out the best in the house so others can picture it as their "HOME".
