Is 18 Days Fast Enough for Ya?

Home Stager with Gloria Home Staging, Inc.

Gloria Home Staging staged this home in Windermere, Florida, and 18 days after listing, it was under contract. When we first saw it, it was dirty and disordered, but the owner was motivated to sell. She evicted the tenants, had all the damage repaired, and cleaned it from top to bottom. Her Realtor priced it well, and it sold seven times faster than the average Windermere home.

Michele - Thank you! It really is satisfying to make things beautiful, isn't it? Are stagers girl/boy scouts at heart: Leave it better than you found it?

Kathy - Thanks! We are especially glad that this home sold so fast, because the whole situation was so stressful that the seller was having asthma attacks from it. We feel like we got to be ministering angels for her.

Chris - Do you recognize any of the furniture? We got a lot of it at Cort during the Expo. That Expo was good on so many levels! Thanks for stopping by!

Laurie; congratulations on such a quick sale! I was happy to see that you removed the large china cabinet in the dining room; those things just suck up floor space. Love it all.

Laurie - that's awesome.  Also - what a difference that rug made in the living room.  The dark color really grounded the space.

Peg - Thanks! They had a lot of stuff sucking up floor space -- counter space, too, including a Star Wars stormtrooper helmet. It was so good to see it vacant when we got there to stage!

Cathy - Thanks for stopping by!

Kathy - We were so pleased with the way it came out. I'm glad you liked it, too!

Gail - It was quite a story; I only scratched the surface. I love those happy endings, though! Thanks for the encouragement!

I am loving all the success stories on staged homes selling so fast in this market.  Three of our staged properties this month have sold in record time, one in less than 3 weeks, one in 2 weeks and one in a day!  Anyone who doesn't believe better take notice.  Way to go Laurie!

Thanks, Holly! I'm glad you enjoyed it. It really did feel like a completely different place when we were done. The owner said she was proud of the home for the first time. A good day's work.
