Few types of people are in as much of a rush to sell as those going through a divorce. It’s a wonder that all couples going through the process don’t choose to work with a home stager, especially with stories like the one Staging Diva Graduate Carol King recently sent in, proving that home staging works.
Before becoming a home stager at the age of 62, Carol was a single mother operating her own hair salon. Though she’d always loved redecorating, she hadn’t considered changing careers to pursue a career in the field. Not even when she found herself staging a vacant home for a divorcing couple.
Carol naturally brought in furniture and accessories, art and flowers to make it feel warm and inviting, knowing that the home shouldn’t be on the market vacant.
The home sold on its first day after being staged after the divorcing couple was presented with multiple offers. They ended up selling for well over their asking price.
It’s a shame that Carol didn’t take before and after photos of this project, but this was before she realized she was a home stager.
This goes to show, even if you just enjoy decorating right now and don’t have plans to start a business, you should be taking before and after photos just in case!
