A Realtor client of Design To Market took the time to call me this afternoon and share a comment made to him by the buyer of a home he had listed. The buyer pulled him aside at the closing to share that he felt the home had been staged very well.
You might wonder why I have taken the time to make this into a blog post but I felt this was a telling insight into the buyer experience. Obviously this buyer did not feel tricked and he definitely liked the home enough to purchase it. Often sellers worry that their home will looked staged and that it will be a turn off to prospective buyers. As you can see by this quote, this is probably not the case.
Tastefully adding attractive furnishings to a vacant home or filling in open spaces in an owner-occupied home can be the final step that is the essential ingredient to selling a home.
