UPDATE: Boyfriend's House for Sale and Staging

I wanted to follow up with those of you who had followed a couple of my threads as to how things turned out with the staging and sell of my bf's house in Seattle.

Things could not have gone better! We received a fabulous offer before even going to list. It was from the clients of the first Real Estate Broker with whom we met (yet we told him we were not going with him as our agent and had chosen another). So, we had not yet signed with the agent we had chosen and he brought his clients in and that was it... they made an offer. We had a day and a half to stage and clean and move boxes etc before they came. We did a pretty good job given the time we had. We hung over 40 paintings and decorated every last inch of his 3000 sq. ft house. Plus put in a half day of shopping! We still have a long road ahead of us with the inspection and everything else. Never a done deal until the closing is over.

So, here are some pictures...

Here is one area I had posted about

rocker

And another... I had much bigger plans for this spot but had zero time to work on it. This was the best I could do.

Here are some other pics

These chairs were a steal at TJMaxx

A shot of his dining area etc.

And it was the perfect day for a showing!!!

The sad part is leaving this stunningly beautiful city and his fabulous house! But we are overjoyed with the great luck we had.

Thanks to you all for your help with this whole staging dilemma. I love this forum!

Who could have walked into that house on a day like that in Seattle, with that view and NOT bought it? Magic.

It looks fabulous! Congratulations to you both. Where are you off to?

Thanks Oly! That is so sweet of you to say. We were in Austin, TX and my bf was renting this house as a corporate rental. We just moved to Bismark, ND for his business and so that is where we are for a couple of years but plan to move back to Texas. However, I do LOVE Seattle!!!

You could have NOT hung all 40 paintings and sold this place. The furnishings and paint are lovely. I especially love the reading nook upstairs and the way you situated the chair to look out the door instead of looking over the balcony railing. Great job and good luck with the closing!

Thanks Amy. I am actually thinking of painting the bedroom a lighter color. Maybe to match my bathroom.
