I have been a certified home stager for a little over a year now and wow is it ever making a difference in this market.
On Thursday the 1st we closed on a home that had been listed 28 days and under contract for nearly full price. In this type of real estate world that is no less than a miracle. I am sure the tax credit had a few things to do with the success, but we always received incredible feedback on how well the home showed. That tells me that the staging is paying off in a big way. Not only was my seller thrilled, but the buyers were ecstatic that the home was move in ready and all that was on their To Do list was "unpack." Hooray for staged homes!!
