One hour staging - received 4 offers at open house the next day

Home Stager with Birgit Anich Staging & Interiors, 203.807.4040

Before Last week I received a call from a Realtor asking if I could do a 1 hour staging for an Open House the very next day. After taking a look the same day and prepration of a simple plan, I marched in the next day loaded with accessories. One hour is definitly VERY short, but it is amazing what difference simple changes make - I staged 4 rooms. The house has been on the market for almost a year and a half. After the Open House they received FOUR offers!!! - a result of home staging and a small price reduction.

Do you as a Real Estate Agent or you as a Home Stager have a similar story to share?

Awesome job, Brigit!  You should be proud.  So, I just had this thought.  Would it make sense to find out what open houses were coming up at the beginning of the week, check out the online listings to find some that could easily be improved and contact the agents to propose staging by the hour to get the house ready for an open house?  This might be an interesting way to solicit business.  Hmmmmm.....

Thanks Charissa! I think this would be a good idea, it requires though still to see the place first and bring plently of accessories with you. One hour is though definitly too short for most spaces.

Thanks Cindy!
