Staged to Sold in 6 WEEKS

By
Home Stager with Staged to WOW Home Staging & Redesign

I recently was contacted by a client whose vacant home had been on the market for about 6 months with NO offers. The home is in a good neighborhood and was in good repair and priced correctly for the area, but still no buyers.  She made the decision not to wait any longer and have her home staged.

Before, as with so many homes, vacant rooms didn’t show off the true space.

Staged to Wow staged the living room, dining room and master suite.

Great success story once again for staging. Now after 6 short weeks my client called to tell me she has a buyer for the full asking price.

Great job Jacki. Vacant houses can look older than their real age and staging can make them look newer.

Jacki - Congratulatons - those are great results.  Love the contrast between the dark furniture and the pale walls and floors.

Jacki ~ buyers just can't get excited about a vacant home that has no warmth when it's empty.  Staging this home made it warm and inviting and buyers obviously felt it was "home" -- congrats on the quick sale and great staging success story!

Hi Jacki--congratulations on helping that seller get an offer.  We all know that sellers can't figure out empty spaces or envision living in them.  Your staging changed all of that.

Awesome news!  I'm sure you were thrilled (and yet, not all that surprised) to get that call!

As stagers don't we wish all our clients would embrace the benefits of staging before they list their home.

Nice job Jacki!  A Full Price Offer in this market is a great ending to this sale.
