We went from just considering listing our home for sale to finding a new house and getting ours on the market and sold in about a month. The entire process happened so quickly but wouldn’t have been possible without an awesome team rallying around us. When we found a home we wanted to purchase, the owners accepted our offer if we had our home listed in less than a week and sold within 30 days. Although it sounded absolutely undoable, we went into a crazy rush to get our house listed for sale and before we knew it, we had sold our home 5 days later and closed by the end of the month. Days before our home was to be photographed for our sale listing I went to the Tech Me Out to the Ballgame Phoenix conference. Because you know, I just like to fill my schedule up until it’s overflowing during my most busiest and chaotic times. In all seriousness though, I learned and networked with some favorite local influencers and businesses. Karin from God’s Garden Treasures in Phoenix, Arizona and I instantly connected and I left the conference looking forward to following up to fill our home with complimentary fresh flowers for our very first, and only, open house. My home selling tips include staging with fresh flowers because it made such a great impact on the appearance of our home and we ended up selling very quickly.
God’s Garden Treasures provides fresh flowers and floral arrangements for all occasions including weddings, corporate gifts, personal deliveries, sympathy and like for us, home staging. I browsed the site and had a personal consultation with Karin so she was familiar with our home. Staging children’s bedrooms along with our entire home meant we had removed all personal photos and clutter. Our walls were mostly empty space and I’ve never seen our home look more clean. It was stunning but definitely lacked personalization. We had throw pillows, matching furniture and color themes but to me, our home just felt cold. God’s Garden Treasures gave that warmth back to our home with colorful flowers and also had every room smelling amazing for our open house. Flowers were delivered the evening before our home listing photos were completed and the next day they were still beautifully blooming for the open house. By Monday we had accepted an offer and couldn’t believe how fast our home sold.
We chose to place flowers all throughout the home. Because we were hoping to only use the flowers for a short time, God’s Garden Flowers provided rental vases. The delivery arrived by courier and I chose to return the vases myself to the flower shop and warehouse in Phoenix.
Our entire family appreciated the beautiful color added to our home. Although we were all exhausted from the busy schedule, little sister snuck in plenty of naps with a great view of the pretty flowers.
When staging your home and considering adding fresh flowers, don’t hesitate to add to every room including the bathrooms, offices, bedrooms and all living areas.
We loved our home greatly and are so excited to have sold it to a wonderful family that will love it as much as we did. So many years and great memories were spent there and adding that warmth to really share what “home sweet home” meant to us with God’s Garden Treasures felt wonderful.
Flowers can be ordered with same day delivery from the “on the run” collection. The entire team is able to discuss your needs and visions to make sure you have an incredible experience. With stellar customer service and the best design team, God’s Garden Treasures in Phoenix, Arizona will not be a one stop shop experience and you’ll definitely go back for all your future floral needs.
