To Market, to market

Oh dear, my poor blog has been neglected again this week. Sometimes there’s just not anything worth blogging about, I’m sorry.

However, as this week draws to a close, I thought I’d point out that two of “my” houses are currently on the market.

It’s interesting to see how the real estate agents and stylists change things around to suit a prospective buyer. I like making a house into a home for my clients and their families, whereas it’s a different story when the For Sale sign is up.

This is the photo I took of the formal lounge room when we’d finished the job.

And this is the real estate photo.

In this house, what was the formal lounge room has now been altered to accomodate another bedroom. We didn’t get back to take a photo of all our work before the For Sale sign went up.

I have it on good authority that the more bedrooms a house can have, the better!

So if you’re looking for some action this weekend, why not have a look at these properties.

Alternatively you might like to grab a bargain at one of the warehouse sales this weekend.

or in Melbourne

Whatever you get up to this weekend, I hope you enjoy yourself and stay dry and warm.

  1. That’s very interesting (and the rooms you created are lovely) – it looks as though it’s a top priority for the agents to make the rooms appear big.

  2. Honestly I reckon the RE Stylists have stripped every last bit of character from these rooms. It seems they want a cookie cutter look, same house just a different suburb! Your work in that first image is glorious Jennifer.
