Before & After Painting and Staging

By Carrie Struss, December 30, 2019

Painting and staging creates significant return on investment when prepping a home for sale. Check out these before and after photos to see how we changed the look and feel of this home. Once we updated the look, this home went pending in under two weeks!

Get the best of both worlds with this one level home featuring an open floor plan with vaulted ceiling perfect for entertaining, and the quiet serenity of a soft sloping treed lot. The large freshly painted deck, accessible through both the living room and bedroom sliding doors, feels like you are living in the trees. Master bedroom is complete with an en suite bathroom and ample closet space. There is a full bath off hall, two car attached garage, and large .3 acre lot.
