Even by admission of the homeowner, this townhouse was frankly, dated and well worn. It was a small 3 bedroom townhouse for a growing family of 4 who were moving on to a larger home because they had outgrown it.
The flooring was in need of repairs, the kitchen cabinets needed an updated, and the basement had become the storage area because of lack of space.
I’m Debi Collinson. Designer. Stager. Real Estate Investor. In 2006, at the request of a realtor, I staged my very first home. Staging houses was just starting to become popular. I was very nervous staging my first house, but the sellers liked their newly redesigned home so much that they turned down an offer for full asking price. I went back to design school and have never looked back. Since 2006, I have been staging & styling spaces to make them look like they belong in a magazine page, and buying “fixer uppers” to fix up & either sell for a healthy profit or to rent them out. I’m currently living in my 8th “fixer upper.” Sign up to receive my e-mails of how to make your home stunning, how to sell your house for top dollar AND how to become financially independent one fixer upper at a time!
