I just got off the phone with an ecstatic Realtor- her most recent property was listed on Sunday, got an offer on Monday, accepted the offer on Tuesday and got a back up offer Tuesday evening. The reason she is so thrilled is not only because this home sold so quickly but because the last home we staged for her also sold in less than a week!
This Realtor understands that in today's market staging a home is essential to getting a faster sale. She also knows that home staging does not have to be expensive. Often times all a client needs is a home staging consultation or a plan of how to best present their home for sale. Once I meet with a client to advise them on how to prepare their home for sale, they can then complete their home staging home work- this can mean rearranging the furniture, decluttering, cleaning or adding items to accent the home. Once their staging work is complete the home can be listed and shown.
Below are our recent statistics for homes we have recently staged in the Main Line and Philadelphia region. If you are considering listing your home this Fall, I recommend that you begin to prepare your home for sale now so that it is ready to show.

"The house is under contract, we signed on Monday night and the inspections were Thursday. I will let you know once the deal is completely done. I think your staging had a huge impact on the speed of the whole process, and the final price. We cannot thank you enough, you are amazing, and I have learned so much about living in a tidier fashion which I really like."
