Staging Works!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

I just took this listing where the sellers were having trouble making the payments and were drowning in debt. The house looked like they felt. I had ideas about what needed to be done to get the house in showing shape but rather than going into detail & looking like the bad guy-I offered to hire a stager. They watch all the "Home" shows and loved the idea. The stager came in -gave suggestions- left my clients with a shoping list of things to get & motivated them about the sale. They found the money to get the place in order & on day 4 we got an offer very close to asking. My clients are over the moon. Staging Works.

John,

Congratulations for thinking outside the box.  I just had a listing sell 20 days after staging when it had been on the market for 6 months with no offers.  Staging DOES work!!  Getting the positive energy in the house with the stager and new hope for the sellers probably contributed as well.

That's fabulous!  I hope your sellers are off to a better financial situation now with the sale of their house.  That can be such a stressful situation.  Kudos to you for hiring a Stager.

How many other listings COULD"VE had the same great outcome had Realtors so matter-of-factly advised their clients of what it would take to get a quicker and so more profitable sale. Realtors know who the competition is and professional home stagers know how to make a home stand out in that crowd--together we can do so much! Thanks John.
