I gotta tell ya that I'm so pleased with the ROLL we are on! The real estate market here in Boulder County, although admittedly feeling a slowdown, is still holding strong in comparison to the state of Colorado overall... and even to many markets nationwide.
However most people here in Boulder County are taking a 'wait and see' attitude, so volume has gone way down. Hence, most of the clients we are working with are selling because they have to sell, not necessarily because they want to.
So... in this market selling clients on Home Staging is more difficult than ever before, and I feel more pressure to ensure that the Staging "Works". These people don't have the luxury of taking a wait and see attitude once they've Staging their Home.
Which is why I have been especially pleased that the last 6 homes we've staged were under contract within 3 weeks, some of them under one week from staging/listing!!
I'd like to share each home with you in a six part series, to show how a diverse set of properties (occupied staging, vacant staging, different, locations, price ranges) united under the common thread of Home Staging: UNITED AS SOLD!
The first in this series is a $900,000 custom built home in Longmont (mls 548445). Built in 1990, it was first on the market with the owners furniture in, then they moved out and it was listed vacant for a while. It had been on the market for over 6 months with several price reductions before I staged it. Within 2 weeks of staging, it was under contract for almost full asking.
More to come!
We don't sell homes, we make homes sell!!
