It’s very common to buy a house with the condition that your house is sold first. This means that I have to Stage their current home within a couple days in order to get it on the market. It’s a lot of work for everyone and sometimes there are many changes that are just impossible to get done in the short timeline. The goal is to get their house sold so they can move into their dream home that they’ve just bought conditionally. I call it “Game Time”.
This charming 2 bedroom townhouse was full of personality but I tried to neutralize some of the strong colours for the masses since there was no time for painting.
The biggest job for the homeowners was to remove about half of their contents since they had clearly outgrown the space. It’s the ideal start-up home for first time buyers or people who are ‘right-sizing’ but not for this growing family.
