SURVEY SAYS!!! Staging not as popular with Realtors?? What's the REAL reason??
A post this morning got my attention with a title that referred to a survey by Homegain about staging and Realtor opinions.
The post is Members Only, so you must be logged in.
The ActiveRain post didn't include a link to the HomeGain survey results but I found it in the HomeGain blog.
The survey results include some common sense actions by home owner/sellers to help present their property for sale. It doesn't take a Rhodes Scholar to know that common sense actions like: de-clutter, clean, make needed repairs, landscaping, etc. will help a property sell.
I also understand that many staging pros include these tasks in their staging advice.
LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE!!
Seems to me that the decline in the popularity of staging by Realtors may be directly related to the ECONOMY.
This survey shows a decline in the popularity of staging by Realtors. However, I suspect that the decline in popularity of staging by Realtors is a result of the increase in foreclosures and short sales where staging isn't going to be nearly as important as the ALL IMPORTANT LIST PRICE.
AND THE BEAT GOES ON!!
