When the seller of this property first called me, he was unsure about the benefits of staging. But he knew that there were 5 houses for sale on his street and that most of them had been on the market for quite some time. He was concerned that a home staging consultation would basically just tell him what he already knew – like that they needed to do some packing and de-cluttering.
During our consultation he was happy to discover that we covered way more than that – right down to how to arrange the furniture, how to style each room to appeal to their likely buyer and how to make selections for high Return on Investment updates in the home. After a month of doing their post-consult “homework” we were approaching their target listing date and they opted to rent a few pieces of furniture, art and accessories to add a little magic.
The preparation and staging coupled with professional marketing efforts by his agent, yielded 2 offers in 2 weeks in a neighborhood where many houses sit for months and months. Congratulations to the seller for investing in his desired results.
