Godwin Front

Does staging to sell have to be an expensive strategy to help your home stand out? Not so much, says Karen Eubank of Eubank staging. She consulted with Ebby agent Carolyn Albers Black on 5242 Godwin, a Vickery Park home that has tons of character.

Photographed by real estate photo pros Shoot2Sell, this property shows like a dream.

“This is another great example of a staging consultation DIY where I consult, send a detailed report and the seller does the work,” said Eubank. “I did go back for an hour to hang pictures and rework a few pieces but the sellers did a fabulous job of following the report.”

The staging definitely helps some of the home’s fantastic details stand out, such as the spacious front porch, beautiful fireplace, huge windows, and lovely kitchen. This 1926 Craftsman-style home in Vickery Park has more than 1,900 square feet, three bedrooms, two baths, and a huge walk-in master closet that the owners added on. It’s listed for $439,000.

Other incredible details include the beautiful kitchen floor, which is made of cork, and the lovely apron sink with gorgeous green backsplash that really sets off the kitchen cabinets and granite counters with an eat-in peninsula for a quick breakfast.

“For an M Streets-area home, they’ve done everything that buyers look for,” Eubank added. “I was very impressed by the size and the updates and I’m a hard sell, as you know!”

The master suite will really impress, as it includes a huge five-piece bath with a gigantic double vanity. And of course, in an area with homes that have little to no closet space, you’ll have to pick your jaw up off the floor when you see the gigantic walk-in closet.

The backyard is spacious, too, and has an elevated deck with room for a hot tub. There’s a carport, but no garage here, which isn’t a bad deal when you consider it.

There’s no question about the value that staging a home like this will add! What do you think of the final result?
