Market Upswing

Home Stager with Restage Inc.



It seems the market is on the upswing. In the last week we've had 6 staged houses sell.

2 had multiple offers, 1 had been for sale for over a year and sold in 5 days!!!

1 sold to the first people who viewed it and the other 2 both sold in under 10 days.

It's fantastic to see and makes it so much fun!

I love staging in a market like this - Not only is it a great eye-opener for those that have not staged but it's so gratifying to see the results.

Our stats were compiling are quite impressive. I hope everyones else is having just as much success and I hope it continues.

Good Luck to you all!

Here is SoCal the lower-end market is running hot with multiple offers. However, the higher end market $1mil and over is stalling. We're having a hard time finding qualified buyers. The availability of good mortgage products in this price range seems to be lacking.

Everything in our market is generating multiple offers (with the exception of Short Sales... which most agents don't have the foggiest idea how to process).
