I am often asked on Listing Appointments about the effectiveness of staging.  Do I believe in staging? Does it really make a difference in the eyes of potential buyers?  In the good old days when a seller put a sign in the yard and could attract multiple offers staging really wasn't a necessity.  However, in the most recent Triangle TARR report, the numbers were quite astonishing.  Sellers, in the current real estate market, have a 13% probability of selling their homes.....

Yes, that is right...13%.  Even though the Triangle is one of the healthiest markets in the country we still have an oversupply of homes.  When there is an oversupply of homes and a seller has a one in ten chance of selling their home a seller must do everything they can to stand out against the competition.  On many occassions I tell my clients that I'm not going to tell them what to do but show them what to do.  I bring clients with me to shop the competition so they can see what they need to do to get a house sold.  I also like to provide examples of before and after so that sellers can see what a difference it makes when cost effective improvements along with staging are combined.  The results are amazing. 

To that end,  I have worked closely the last few years with Triangle Staging and Design on staging.  There are very few staging companies in the area that provide consultations along with having a warehouse and truck to transport the staging materials.  The results are amazing.  I wanted to share with you a couple of successes I had recently with Michele and Honey and give them kudos for the difference they make with my listings. 

Having stellar business partners that make a difference are critical in today's real estate market.  I'm glad to be working with Michele and Honey!
