North Austin Wycliff Home staged. The initial walk through of this early 1980’s home definitely exposed that it needed some updating in order to compete in the Austin Metro real estate market this fall. The interior paint was soiled and chipped, light fixtures and fans were brass and dated, blinds were missing and counters and cabinets in dire need of attention. The front exterior was missing a house number letter and the front door looked as if an egg had been splattered on it. The home owner was on a budget with what could be spent on updating the home so I went for updating the items that would make the most impact visually.
Paint color. The new paint color in the home brightened and warmed the feeling inside the home. Neutral accent colors were painted in the dining room and master bathroom to add a soft contrast in colors.
Maintenance. A handy man was hired to address the cabinet doors and hinges, hang blinds and address other small items.
Once the painting and other maintenance items were addressed the home was ready for me to stage. I brought in large furniture that would accommodate the large living room and dining room size to demonstrate to buyers what size furniture would fit in the space. Both of these rooms were furnished and accessorized and the kitchen, master bathroom and secondary bathroom were completely accessorized adding color and decoration.
