As a Home Stager here in New Hampshire I've helped many clients prepare their house for sale. One thing I hear over and over again is "I wish we had done this sooner!" For those who have had their house on the market for a long time without much action, it's wishing they had consulted a stager prior to listing. For others, it's wishing they had made the improvements sooner so they could appreciate them instead of doing the work for the benefit of the next owner.
I recently worked with a couple who followed my every suggestion to the letter. They did a fabulous DIY transformation and when they were done they were not only proud...they were sorry they hadn't done it years sooner.
Here are some photos of their efforts...time and money well spent, considering they were "contingent" in just a month's time.
