One of RESA’s Regional Vice Presidents and Local Dallas Chapter President, Karen Otto did an extraordinary staging on this home that just turned 101 years old. RESA member Lance Selgo, co-owner and photographer of Unique Exposure Photography did a phenomenal job capturing images to showcase the beauty of it all.
The eye-catching staging in these photos was done by Karen Otto of Home Star Staging. Otto worked to draw attention to the historic details and charm of this home, emphasizing the flow and feel of the space so a prospective buyer can see themselves living in it. “I actually envisioned myself even living here while I was staging it, I love this type of home!” Otto said. “From everyday living with the family to entertaining a crowd, I think it’s important to allow the house to speak to a buyer while letting the furnishings be an accessory to it, not the other way around. As a home stager, I’m all about selling what stays with the house, and it’s not the ‘stuff,’ although we need it to accent and enhance the rooms and selling features, not overpower the space.”
“In this home the windows are gorgeous and I didn’t want to obstruct the views,” Otto said. She selected some transitional pieces from CORT Furniture Rental to accent the cool rustic features inside the home.
Otto continues, “This home will take a certain type of buyer who understands and appreciates both the nature of a home over 100 years old, the architectural elements (prairie style is a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design, which has clean lines and minimalist features along with geometric and natural elements where the large windows help bring the outside in), and the urban rustic style of the former farmland this home and others in this historic part of downtown McKinney were built on.”
