151 Bowdoin Staged – House Flip Update

Here are a few updated photos of our Bowdoin St home with some of the staging done.

We normally do some light staging of the kitchens and baths, however I have been looking into doing some full staging of a few of our properties. I just need to figure out the costs and find the right people to do it.

Here is Bowdoin St with some staging done:

So there you have it…. the staging really softens it up and adds some more color and visual appeal to the rooms.

I think this home would look amazing fully staged with furniture, but we’ll have to wait for another property to do that!!


  1. Great Job!

    The floors and original details look amazing.

    Very very nice. Matt there were doors that closed and went back into the wall frame…did you keep this look? Living room out to the little seating room as you came into the house, doors that separated the living room from the Dining room and from the Dining room going into the walkthrough pantry. There were holes in the dining room floor that housed the ‘buzzers’ to ring for the Butler. It did have the back porch and the hatchway to the basement. I am just so pleased every time I see the pictures.

    • Hi Mary,

      Unfortunately we couldn’t keep the pocket doors as they were no longer functioning and beyond repair.

      I never saw any holes in the dining room floor for the “butler buzzers”. Those may have been removed prior to us getting the house.

      Thanks for the comments!!

    Looks awesome Matt!,

    Many buyers need a home staged in order to invision it’s potential. Great job bringing that home back to life and good idea with the staging.

  4. Matt,
    The house is gorgeous inside and out! Great job.

    I stage our rehabs as well. I own kitchen and dining room sets, a carpet, lighting, coffee tables, and misc. accessories which I bought over time from such inexpensive places as HomeGoods, Pier 1 Imports, and Building 19. I rent a couch, loveseat, queen bed frame, and mattress because they are too big to store and move. I rent from Rent-A-Center and it’s pretty inexpensive – about $200 per month for couches and bed. I usually only need it for 1-2 months for MLS photos and showings, as the house has (hopefully) sold by then. Hope this info helps.

    • Hi Kathy,

      That’s some great advice.

      We’ve got a ton of staging stuff for kitchens/baths (enough to fill half of my basement and half of Dominics!! LOL). We even have a small dining room table that we use…. but I’ve got nothing for living rooms or bedrooms. Renting those big items is a great idea.

      Thanks for the comments!

  5. How’s the buyer activity going thus far with this one Matt?
