Sold in 24 hrs!

By
Home Stager with Glastonbury Home Staging

My company, Glastonbury Home Staging was hired to stage an owner occupied home for a family located in South Windsor, CT , that was relocating. I met with them in early January and discussed my recommendations. They had watched all the shows on HGTV and knew they needed help and were prepared and open to working to get their house ready for sale.

They replaced all carpeting, painted the whole interior of the house, added hardwood floors, replaced windows, changed out hardware, changed light fixtures and replaced all kitchen appliances with stainless steel.  It was a lot of work. I chose the paint, light fixtures, and consulted on carpet. I asked them to remove some pieces of furniture. I brought in artwork, bedding, lamps and accessories  from my inventory.

The house was just listed on the MLS and I got a call from the seller telling me in sold in 24 hrs at full asking price +$100. I am so psyched for this family.

It was such a pleasure to work with this couple, they got it, and they trusted me. They worked hard and it paid off. It is so satisfying to do this work.

Kathy - Thanks I appreciate your support.  It has been a slow and steady growth of my staging business here in CT, but it is growing and with these kind of results I believe it will continue. I always enjoy seeing your posts and watching your business grow in such an active area as Atlanta. Thanks for all your inspiration.
