Just Listed | Just Sold Unique Modern Home in Maple Leaf

Selling this Unique Modern Home in Maple Leaf was not as easy as it might seem. This north Seattle neighborhood is desired by buyers mostly for its quaint Bungalows, Storybook Tudors and smattering of cool Mid-Century homes. The Divas listed and sold this Unique Modern Home in Maple Leaf in less than a week and for over asking. How did we do it? We used our tried and true Diva Difference system, which reaped stellar results for our sellers. Let's talk about the magic of this Unique Modern Home and our marketing that got it sold.

When Emily and John approached us about selling their Unique Modern Home tucked discreetly off the street in the northwest section of Maple Leaf, we were immediately envisioning how to market this luxurious property. The open spaces, clean design, and small yet beautifully landscaped yard all made this home a joy to sell. But the location of the home off the street meant that the curb appeal would be hard to capture. As always, we Divas had a plan.

First – Let’s talk about the cool design of this Unique Modern Home in Maple Leaf

The open floor plan and high ceilings in this Unique Modern Home in Maple Leaf easily added the drama to this listing. As soon as you walked in the door, the space presented itself in front of you; the cozy fireplace seating, stunning kitchen, grand dining area and view of the peaceful backyard. Attracting buyers was all about showing off the sleek design and easy living aspects to this Unique Modern Home. Beyond the beautiful downstairs space, the upstair also boasted three very large bedrooms, including a grand owner’s suite. The teens living in this home had space galore for art projects, homework, hangouts, and shoes. Once the spaces were staged and photographed, we knew hooking the buyers would be a breeze. And – we were right.

We knew the interior of this Unique Modern Home would be easy to market, but the exterior was more of a challenge. Based on the location, lack of front yard landscaping and slightly ubiquitous design, we needed to find a way to make the exterior of this home stand-out. We decided the best way to boost this home’s curb appeal would be to take twilight photos to give the home character and depth. In addition, we also did drone shots to get the best angle. And it worked! We brought the drama and left the mundane behind.

Staging Is Marketing Gold Especially for this Unique Modern Home

Staging every listing is another huge Diva Difference factor that stands out for our clients. We engaged one of our top stagers, Open House Staging, to get the job done on this home since we knew we would need to “bring the drama.” Staging is one of those elements that help enhance an already beautiful space as well as bring character to spaces that might be lacking in interesting architectural details. The bottom line, it’s proved that staged homes consistently sell faster and for more money and that is whatever sellers wants – to sell their home for top dollar.

Once this stunner of a Unique Modern Home was perfectly staged it was poised for the onslaught of Diva Difference marketing.
