Amazing Staging! OH – it’s a great – TRUE – story!!
The Staging business never ceases to amaze me! The positive results of Staging Homes for Sale still Changes Lives – For the Better!
A property, of mine, that had been Staged and on the market for 10 months (over priced) was finally reduced to reflect current market values. It sold within two weeks! I knew this! What I did not know until I spoke to the Realtor yesterday was that the unit sold “due to the Staging”, to quote the Realtor. I also knew it did not have the lowest listing price in the complex and it did not have features that the other comps did. The Buyers loved it & made the offer due to the Staging!
The news to me yesterday was that the buyers offered MORE THAN the listing price!! It’s September 2008!! I am delighted to testify that over asking price offers still take place, “in this market!!” I am happy for the sellers as they had been carrying two mortgage payments for almost a year! I LOVE THIS BUSINESS!! I cannot wait to see what good things come next!!
PS The foot note is that I was hired by the homeowner, it sold under the second Realtor – whom I have NEVER met AND has given me two great jobs within the last two weeks because of the power of Home Staging!! Isn’t that cool?
