You know the song...we all love it. We sang along with Led Zeppelin:
"There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven."
When we are buying a home we are all basically looking to buy that 'stairway to heaven'. As you walk up those stairs to the front door of your dream home or as you walk up the stairs to your Master Bedroom retreat.
But would you want to buy this Stairway to Heaven??
Does this stairway give you the impression you are on your way to the Blissful Heaven of your Master Bedroom Suite?
Oh come on.....I dare you. Look at what you will find at the top of the stairs. That perfect 'En Suite' that every buyer wants.
So much space for your towels. So new and fresh!
Turn the corner and look at the great area for your bed, dresser, a work desk and even a nice BRIGHT room to read in.
No? Not in a hurry to make an offer?
Okay, thank goodness for investors who are ready to take on these projects to make these rundown homes a piece of Heaven for buyers. Or maybe your homes needs a bit of work before it is put on the market?
The process can be made easier and more valuable when someone that knows what a buyer wants is brought in to assist. Bring in a Home Stager to help with the process.
After taking down a couple walls to open things up, moving the entrance of the room to the other side of the stairs to allow for a larger bathroom, plus many cosmetic changes....the Master Bedroom and En Suite took on a whole different feeling. Take a look.
How is this for a space for your bed, dresser and work station?
Perhaps a couple walls removed to open it up and really enjoy that reading area?
Oh, and remember that En Suite? Just in case you forgot.....
Let's look at it now.....
So, maybe you have a different idea of that particular Stairway to Heaven now?
Old homes have so much character and just need someone with vision to get them into great living condition again. Investors and Home Stagers make a great team!
If your home needs a fresh "Stairway to Heaven" be sure to get professional advice.
