On the market for months, a well-maintained home in a nice Cincinnati suburb continued to receive showings but never the long awaited offer. Feedback was lukewarm and gave the seller little to act upon. The Realtor had done all of the right things in working with their client but they too were stumped.
After the seller's Realtor recommended they contact Design To Market Home Staging, we received a call from the homeowner asking about the staging process. We talked at length about the staging consultation and the types of feedback we would provide. The seller considered staging and at the same time considered a price drop with no additional changes to the home. They realized though that these pricing adjustments had not yet produced the results they had desired and decided to opt for a consultation.
The report was lengthy. Many things the homeowner could accomplish on their own. Some things like wallpaper removal in one room and changes to a few light fixtures in others were best accomplished by a handyman. These changes along with rental decorative items and repositioning of the homeowners furniture were all implemented. The homeowner took the list and as a team we "ran with it" and quickly checked each item off as they were completed. New photos were the last step in the process.
Within days of the staging, the home was re-introduced. It generated a busy weekend of showings and the strategy worked with an offer just days after the staging was completed.
