furniture rental cincinnati: Staging Through The Eyes of a Buyer: Part 2 - 01/05/11 03:58 PM

"I wish the walls could talk!"  I think this is the mantra of many that are involved in the process of selling a home.  Sometimes, it is assumed to be a price  issue.  Often though, a new lower price does not solve the problem.  More times than not, it is more subtle and requires the team work of a Realtor, a homeowner, and a home stager.  
 
I recently wrote a post titled Staging Through The Eyes of A Buyer in which a Realtor shared a buyer's comments about his pleasure as a buyer in purchasing a staged home.

furniture rental cincinnati: The Perfect Gift! - 12/27/10 08:57 AM

What more can I say?  The perfect gift for a stager!  I received this last week from a thoughtful client whose mother's home we had staged.  I have been chuckling ever since.  The question I have asked myself is whether this is truly "stager jewelry"  or if there is someone else out there who "does homes."  Regardless, I really got a kick out of this. For homeowners in our area...remember "We Do Homes" and have been staging homes in Cincinnati for over 7 years.  Please call us at 513-265-0952 or visit the Design To Market website for more information. … (12 comments)

furniture rental cincinnati: Staging Through the Eyes of a Buyer - 11/29/10 06:34 AM
 

STAGED...OR

VACANT?
A Realtor client of Design To Market took the time to call me this afternoon and share a comment made to him by the buyer of a home he had listed.  The buyer pulled him aside at the closing to share that he felt the home had been staged very well. 
You might wonder why I have taken the time to make this into a blog post but I felt this was a telling insight into the buyer experience.   Obviously this buyer did not feel tricked and he definitely liked the home enough to purchase it.   … (16 comments)

furniture rental cincinnati: Owner Occupied Home Staged and Sold in 3 Days: The Dining Room - 11/15/09 05:36 AM
For those of you that read the previous post Owner Occupied Home Staged and Sold in 3 Days I would like to now share the photos and some observations.  Watch for future updates as additional room transformations in this home will be highlighted. 
Dining Room:
 
Changes that made the difference:
Remove wallpaper - It's tough to create broad interest in a room with wallpaper.  Wallpaper can be a turn off to buyers with different taste. Remove window treatments - It's safest to stick with neutrals.  In bedrooms pleated shades are safe.  In rooms where privacy is not an issue just take them down. … (15 comments)

furniture rental cincinnati: It's Time to Stage Your Vacant Home - 11/16/08 06:34 AM
 


According To Lawrence Yun a Chief Economist with the National Association of Realtors, "A vacant home listed for sale always applies downward pressure on home prices. The opportunity cost of carrying a vacant home is high."
According to the U.S Census Bureau records, we have the highest number of vacants on record since 1956.
What does this mean for homesellers as we wrap up 2008 and look with hope to 2009?  It means that if you have a vacant home on the market, it is critical that you investigate staging your vacant home.  Design To Market Home Staging in Greater Cincinnati has been staging vacant homessince 2004.  We  have seen … (6 comments)
