We listed this condo in the Windsor at Perry Hall Farms for our neighbor – literally.  The condo was in great shape and Casa Bella Realty only had a few suggestions for the homeowner to consider.  All items were completed – professional cleaning of all rooms, carpet was professionally cleaned, and painting was done.  That was all that this well-maintained home needed before listing.  Well, maybe not the only thing.  Casa Bella firmly believes, and has seen the results, of what staging a home can do to increase the value of your home and get it sold more quickly.   The homeowner left several pieces of furniture.  I incorporated the furniture – a complete dining room set, mirror, bedroom set, and entertainment center into my design.  For the living room, we brought in a sofa, chair, end tables, coffee table (tables were redone by our furniture painter/refinisher), wall decor and accent pieces.  I particularly like the ceramic cat that found a resting place in front of the cozy fireplace!  For the dining room, I added dishes and a few accent pieces to the china cabinet and table.  The kitchen area was staged with a table/chairs/bench, a side table, accent pieces and wall decor.  The kitchen just needed a few splashes of color.  The sitting area in the primary bedroom was completed with a chair and tables and I placed some accent pieces around the room.  The second bedroom, we staged as a home office, bringing in chairs, a side table, lamps, pictures and accent pieces.  This property sold within 7 days at full asking price.
