Is it ever a good idea to advertise a home as being staged? Do any agents or stagers post signs on the lawns of staged homes stating that it IS a staged home? And if so, does that attract true buyers or are they more curiousity-seekers interested in interior design?
I hesitate to use any advertising that might make a property come across as artificially contrived. My comfort level is normally to just leave my business cards on a hall or kitchen table (but only if the owners have followed my staging advice; otherwise I will not advertise my association with the property). But if anyone has had good results with marketing that makes it known a house is staged, I'd love to hear about it! And also, how do the sellers feel about it?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
