Member Feature: Maura Mackey
Ireland-based HSA Member Maura Mackey recently staged a large detached house located in Glanmire, Co.Cork. The house had been rented out for a few years.
It was a beautiful house, but needed TLC to reach its fullest potential. Unfortunately, the former tenants had left it looking run-down and tired. A repaint was certainly needed, along with a selection of new furniture, accessories, and carpets.
After Maura worked her staging magic, not only did the property sell after just a couple of weeks of being on the market, but the owner received an extra 40k on top of the asking price. This is a perfect example of the positive results of Home Staging, helping to turn a neglected property into somebody’s forever home. It is such a rewarding aspect of a Home Stager’s job.
The estate agent and owner were absolutely thrilled with the staging job. The owner was so impressed that they have since asked Maura to stage a few more properties for them. A little bit of love when it comes to homes can go a long way, and Maura’s story proves it!
