WILL STAGING WORK ALL THE TIME?

By
Home Stager with Staged By Design

What causes some staged homes to get a contract within days of listing and at close to asking price while other houses linger? 
I try to analyze the common denominators when a staged home goes under contract quickly and here's
what I've found:

  · The Realtor, seller and stager are ALL mentally invested in the process.  The seller has to take an
    active role, even if it's just approving the work that needs to be done to update or take care of the
    deferred maintenance.  The days of abdicating all responsibility to the agent are over.

  · The team forms a strong partnership with frequent and open communication.

  · The seller is willing to follow the staging recommendations and spend a little money to put the house in
     the best condition he can reasonably
 afford (we prioritize).

  · The house is staged before it hits the market.

  · The property is priced realistically.  What a seller wants and what a property is worth many times are
    two different things.

  · The staged photos are used for the MLS and other advertising  to draw immediate interest.  Take the 
   ugly photos off and put the staged photos in the advertising ASAP.

   Typical Result: THE HOUSE IS SHORTLY UNDER CONTRACT FOR CLOSE TO LIST PRICE
