I just finished a very fun condo staging! The condo is an investment property at The Sundial, and is rented almost non-stop through the Royal Shell Vacation Rental program. The owners had the property for several years, but decided it was time to sell.  Like most vacation rental condos, it was listed for sale as “turn-key” that is, furniture and other household items in the condo were included in the sale. After a few of months with no offers, the owners decided to let Sanibel Home Staging do some updating to the unit.

Lots of upfront planning, ordering, buying and scheduling were done in March and April. Then, the last week of April and the first two weeks of May, the condo was temporarily unavailable in the rental program, so we could execute the updating plan that had been in the works for a couple of months.

blogLots happened in those three short weeks! The condo was professionally painted; walls, ceiling, and trim. The carpet was cleaned, and the tile and grout were cleaned and sealed. The draperies were cleaned at the window.

All of the furniture with the exception of a fairly new sofa-sleeper, was replaced.  A new light fixture, mirror, and cabinet were hung in the bathroom. New bed linens, towels, and shower curtain were purchased. Beautiful new granite counters were installed in the kitchen, and of course a new sink and faucet too. Kitchen hardware was updated, new art and accessories added, and all of the “old stuff” was donated to Noah’s Ark!

All of this was accomplished without the owners doing anything but approving the plan and budget, and then trusting Sanibel Home Staging to get the job done! Of course they received regular emails about our progress, and an occasional phone call, for approval of any plan changes.

Take a look at the before and after photos. Also see the very nice comments the owners, Bob & Carlyn, and Kris, the Manager of the Royal Shell Vacation Rental program sent, following the completion of the job.

If you are thinking about selling your home, condo or rental property, please give me a call, or drop me an email. We would love to help you get your property ready for buyers/renters to see and love!
