Staging a home for sale in Portland is a special challenge when the house has been in the family for many years.

When an aging parent can no longer care for themselves, the family members must take on the burden of preparing the family home for sale. It can be a daunting task  to figure out what updates will give the best return.


Hiring a stager to take an objective look can save you thousands of dollars, as they know what updates buyers are looking for while keeping your budget in mind.

Having a stager as part of your marketing strategy  for selling your home can save you  hours of shopping and headaches.  Most stagers get a discount on finishes and even have reliable contractors they can refer for contract work.

The price you pay for hiring a stager to take on the design work will most likely be the best return on your dollar! Imagine was hired to do just that, take on the challenge of choosing the right updates and  finishes for the best return. Matching the finishes to the style of the home and to appeal to the targeted buyer is one of our specialties.

Imagine also staged the house to “Connect Buyers to the Space”.

Take a look at the before and after shots of this home. Imagine picked out new lighting for the bathrooms, kitchen, and dining as well as new flush mounts. We picked out new quartz for the kitchen countertops all made complete with an under-mount sink. New flooring was added to the kitchen. Glass mixed with stone added a contemporary look to the kitchen backsplash. A remnant from the kitchen quartz and backsplash were added to the bathroom counter. Imagine chose simple white subway tile for the shower. The tile helps the small room look fresh and modern, while at the same time keeping within the style of the home.

Lucky for the homeowners they had a savvy Realtor who knew that staging and updates would help sell the house for  a better price than the condition it was in, and who also happens to be one of our favored Realtor partners. Read below for The final outcome…

“Great work with the staging and consulting.  We had an over asking price offer within one day of listing.” Jim (homeowner)

Great people, great furniture, solid service. I've worked with Lenny and Lisa several times and haven't been disappointed yet. I truly believe my properties sell faster because of their staging work.
