Some sellers  are wondering why their house dont sell even if it has been staged for 22 months!!!!!!!!

Staging alone will NOT SELL A HOME ,it is a combination of patience, showing it ,open houses It has to be priced right. Have your realtor do the homework and get comparable homes in your area and what they are selling for. Be Realistic! If you get greety YOU WILL NOT SELL.

Home staging has become the way the entire nation is selling homes successfully. If you are the type that thinks that home staging is a waste of time  and you are a realtor, then Im sorry  your not doing your job rigth. As you know, what we stagers do is package beautifully a home so that it sells at the highest price possible and staging should be reccomended from the beggining to the seller. Is the best weapon agents have to help them get their commission quick! so thats why  a stgaging company that you trust should be part of their marketing strategy.

 Staged Homes.com  has the national average for a sale of  staged homes which is 37 days or less.

Both of your points are correct a home has to be priced right and have a great first impression.

You are right about the pricing. The price must be right.

They'll find out fast enough if they overprice their house.

22 months!!? Yikes! If it's been on the market for 22 months, it's worth hundreds of thousands less than their original list price.

Fernando, right you are.  All the beautiful Staging in the world will be wasted if the house is not priced correctly.  Great pic, BTW,

Fernando, here is my perspective.  Sellers listen to their REA.  The REA wants top dollar because of the commission.   I often advise my clients to lower their asking price, because I believe we stagers have a better pulse on the market AND we have no vested interest in how much the house sells for.  Given that, keeping the price too high makes us money.  Monthly rental!
