Quick sale of home in Corning NY

Home Stager with StageTwoSell LLC


As a Real Estate agent you show homes that need some TLC and nicely suggest the easy fixes...

  • "Paint is an inexpensive fix", or
  • "Those fixtures could be easily switched out."
  • "A new light fixture there would make a big difference."

"Just a paint job"

But really, after 5 or 6 of those comments the buyers eyes start to glaze over and now they're wondering, "do I have time for all those fixes?"

after staging

I think in todays market the Home should look perfect and move in ready unless your willing to take a lot less for it. Anything and everything is an excuse to pay less.

Debra--yes, I have seen that glazed look many times.  I wonder though why it is so much easier to take the price reduction than to do the work up front.  Never have figured that one out.

Janet,  Do you think we sometimes give the sellers so much on the To Do list that we overwhelm?  It's my policy to call back the next day to see how the sellers are feeling.  I think it's one of the most important calls I make to them.  We revisit the top 10 list and take it one step at a time.

Here's one comment from a client, "Thanks Deb for the top 10 list, it was most helpfull to know exactly what to concentrate on.  We're busy and checking things off the list"

Thank you Shelley.  Before and after photos are  very helpful.  I use Picassa to load everthing.  What program do you use?

Debra - I think letting clients know that you are a "full service" staging company, and can lessen their burden is great.  Creating a top 10 list in order of importance would be really helpful for clients.  If they could even get the first 5 points accomplished, it would help enormously.

Like Sally, I try to summarize and prioritize what needs to be done so they have a short list - then can move on as these things are done.  Your photos point out the necessity of fixing walls - especially in older homes, where people might look for "problems".  Julie

Thanks Sally, Julia and Valerie.  The Realtors are excited about the transformation and are happy to show this home again after it was on the market for over 6 months in the "before" state.

Debra ~ I can't imagine a buyer being interested in the "before" property ... all you see are flaws.  The "after" is sleek, stylish, and looks move-in ready!  Nicely done!
