Center Stage on Wykeham Road

Center Stage on Wykeham Road

Staging has always been the key to my success in selling my own houses...and I have owned a lot of them!

I recently took a gut renovation in Washington on and the results were remarkable. The home was beautifully built with all the finest attention to detail and it was in a beautiful area.

The idea was this 1940’s bungalow home was being renovated for the New Yorker weekender crowd that is so fond of Litchfield County. It was designed with three en-suite bedrooms, one downstairs and two upstairs. This was designed for a couple  that could have visiting friends for the weekend all of whom had their privacy.

I was called in when the builder was noticing the visitors to the home, were not sure what to do with the rooms. They needed clear definition.

People are often confused as to how the rooms are best laid out. I was called in to define the spaces. I set forth with that goal in mind and geared to this particular demographic. : Worldly, elegant, contemporary cosmopolitan chic with earthy elements to enhance the bucolic nature of the surroundings.

Who bought the home? An older retired couple that was downsizing to minimize maintenance. They made this home their pied a terre in between trips abroad. This was the home they needed that their family and friends could visit and gather when the couple returned home from their extensive travels.

Mission was accomplished and the buyer was thrilled with their new home.

More and more frequently staging is used here on the East Coast although it has been used as a sales tool on the west coast for years.

It absolutely reduces the time on the market and increases the sale price.

My suggestion to all real estate agents is to suggest to their clients to stage rather than start with a price reduction.

My suggestion to any homeowner looking to sell their house, it is a wise use of money and time to stage your house!
