Sold! Cincinnati Investor $299K Staging Success- DOM 10 with Multiple Offers!

Home Stager with Cincinnati Home Stager

Here at Stage A Star, we work with lots of Cincinnati Investors.  We stage at all price points for our Investor clients and those properties have been selling fast!  I love seeing the transformation of these investment homes and being a part of their success.  

I wanted to share with you a particular home of one of our very talented Investors.  This was a higher end investment at $299K for the Cincinnati real estate market.   We stage investment properties anywhere from $60K and up so this one was DEF. a price point that needed to sell quickly.  It was also a tougher price range in the Loveland, Ohio area (suburb of Cincy) because there are so much competition!

The 2 major drawbacks to this house was the steep driveway that buyers aren't crazy about around here and the backyard was really small.  Our goal was to have potential buyer's fall in love with the home as soon as they walked through the doors.  Well, I'm happy to report that we acheived that goal!  This beautiful home received 2 offers and had an accepted contract within 10 days of listing it.

Here are the Stats:

Listed: April 29th, 2011

Offer:  The first offer came 1 day after listing it.  It was too low so moving on with it...

Feedback:  Home had 8-10 showings with negative feedback about the driveway and yard (no surprise!)Interior feedback was excellent. (yeh!)

Offer: The 2nd Offer came after 10 Days on the market.

SOLD: 98.5% of the list price and offically closed June 24th, 2011


Here are some of the Before/After Photos.  Please excuse my "Before" quality- my camera decided to kick the bucket that day so I had to resort to my iPhone. 








Staging is working in our Cincinnati real estate market.  Are you ready to stage yours?   Just give me a call or send an email and I'd be happy to chat with your about your particular property and if staging can help get it SOLD too.

All My Best,

Thanks Kathy- it really was a great success story despite the driveway and yard objections.  I love it when a buyer falls in love and makes an offer anyways.

You go girl!!!  I love it when stagers get these clear stats and we can shout it from the rooftops.  Now if only more agents would understand it and sell it to their clients....

Beautifully staged, Teresa. And.. what an incredible statistic to add. I especially love the dining room and the use of the two floor plants.

Congratulations. Your home staging is being featured in the group Staging Before and After Pictures.
