Staging made the difference!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Sun Valley Southern Idaho
I am a Broker and also am a photographer and stager. I had a great listing that at least 3 buyers couldn't visualize a dinnette set in the country-style kitchen. I decided to order some new furniture and stage the home. The next day, I had a agent show it and the buyer's loved the home and the furniture. They wrote an offer and it is now pending. The agent said the staging sold it! I am glad I made the investment in my own staging furniture. Now I will be moving it to another listing that is vacant and hopefully it will help that one sell too!

A little pricey solution but yes it seems that buyers cannot figure out how furniture will look or be placed in a room nowadays.  A true shopping handicap IMHO.

Yes, it did cost some, however as a Broker that stages too, it was an investment I needed to make anyway. So I am glad I was able to afford to do it.  Merry Christmas!

Susan -- good for you for recognizing the importance of staging a space that buyers couldn't visualize working for them!  We love hearing about smart Realtors like you who help your clients reduce market time.  Do you have a photo of the dining space?
