These 5 Sellers Took their Stager’s Advice & Came Out Winners (Before & Afters)
One of the most cost-effective home staging services that homeowners (or their agents) can take advantage of is the Home Staging Consultation. For a minimal fee and two hours of time, a professional home stager walks through the entire property with the seller or agent and advises on things like:
- Which cosmetic improvements need to be completed (and which don’t)
- How to properly place the furniture for best traffic flow
- How to highlight the home’s best architectural features
- Minor updates that will make the home appealing to today’s demanding buyers
- Curb appeal that will make buyers rush to see the inside of this home
In our local real estate market, home staging is becoming more widely accepted as an excellent marketing tool. Homes that are priced right, have an aggressive agent, are in good condition, and presented in their very best light are the homes that sell faster. Staging helps buyers imagine how THEY would live in the home … it takes away the sellers’ imprint on the home, so that buyers can immediately connect to the property.
Sometimes the best way to make a point is to show proof ~ so here are some Before and After photos of clients’ homes where my company has provided a verbal consultation. These motivated sellers did a great job taking our advice, and spent a minimal amount of money preparing their home for sale. We rarely advise remodeling the kitchen or tearing out walls — instead, we give our seller clients easy-to-follow tips on how to make their home irresistible to buyers. In all of these examples, these 5 sellers worked with what they already had — there were no fees for staging inventory rental — and all SOLD in less than 2 weeks …
We’re proud of how our homeowner clients took our advice and made their homes “move in ready.” The end result is a happy client, a grateful listing agent, happy buyers, and a quicker sale!
