Ready 2 Stage is the Big "1"

Home Stager with Ready 2 Stage

Happy New Year to you and happy One Year Anniversary for Ready 2 Stage Home Staging & Redesign! Can you believe it is 2010? What a whirlwind year. 

We are very appreciative for all of you that have supported us this year and we look forward to serving you in the future. We have sculpted our business to fit the needs of you - our customers. When we first began, it was difficult knowing how the public would respond to home staging and redesign. We feel that with a year under our belts, we are now better equipped to serve you and meet your needs.

The increase in interest in home staging in the Tennessee area is rising. Did you know that un-staged homes stay on the market an average of 182 days, while STAGED homes sell within 37 days? Staging a home prior to listing can yield a 586% return on investment. That means with an average home staging cost of $300-$400, you can receive $1500-$2000 extra on the sales price. What a difference staging can make!

Since it is still relatively new in this area, we would like to offer a 20% discount on a basic consultation during the month of January. A consultation takes about one hour, and gives the home seller a better understanding of what should be done to prepare the home for the market. You will Staging is a Great Valuereceive valuable information that could save you thousands in the future. Give it a try!

Glad to see that people are realizing the value of staging...  We have a client who remodels 2 unit condos, and he always stages.  His stager's style and understanding of the market make his sales that much easier!

All the best in 2010.

Wow has it really been one year already? As you've shared your staging talents with us here in AR, I've been impressed with your work. You're worked hard to grow your business and I'm sure year 2 will treat you very well! Great idea about the staging sale, I've done a similar thing.

Ron & Alexandra--I think that Tennessee will eventually catch on to the staging just like the rest of the country and then I will be swamped!  Thanks for your comment.

Sheila--You have been a great inspiration.  I appreciate your advice and input and here's hoping to meet you this year!  Thanks!

Nancy--Thank you.  Wishing the same for you and your business

Debra--The years pass so quickly don't they?  I appreciate your posts and answers to various questions.  Wishing us both success in 2010!! Thanks for your comment!
