We have a real estate trifecta for you today. It has a historic pedigree, excellent location, and flawless updates. This Dilbeck, midcentury modern home has been updated by Bodron + Fruit, one of the best architecture and design firms in the country. It’s located at 4605 Watauga in Bluffview on over an acre of land, and as listing agent Julie Boren, with Dave Perry-Miller, told us, “It’s only three minutes from Love Field— and that’s if  you hit every red light!”

We’ve taken it upon ourselves to point out examples of bad real estate photos and poorly presented houses for sale.

Today, our Thursday Three Hundred is the exact opposite, a shining example of making the very best of its assets through staging and photography.

The home at 3965 Boca Bay Dr. in Northwest Dallas’ Glen Cove is an updated ranch with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 2,232 square feet, built in 1965. Glen Cove is in the larger neighborhood of Glen Meadow Estates, north of Midway Hollow, a family-friendly, established area with mature trees and a sense of community. Homeowners in this area can be a member of the Glen Cove Swim Club.

It will be listed tomorrow by Beth Nunneley Mazziotta with Nunneley Real Estate for $330,000.

Realtors face this every day. The RESA Staging to Sell class can help you solve these problems.

What is the going rate for a staging consultation? What does it cost to stage a vacant property? What updates will bring a seller the best return on investment? Should a Realtor stage their own properties?

Realtors, investors, and builders can learn a lot from the Staging to Sell: What Every Agent Should Know class offered by The Real Estate Staging Association through MetroTex Association of Realtors. It’s a three-hour, three-MCE-credit course that provides an enormous amount of information for $25. Talk about bang for your buck.
