I picked up the phone and was asked by a voice on the other end of the line if we were the company that staged homes in Cincinnati. They had looked at our website and felt that the Design To Market Home Stagers could help them figure out how to get their house sold.
This home had been on the market for over 100 days and was getting little showing activity and with each showing there was a common theme in the feedback that the home would require too much work. The seller was very familiar with home staging in Cincinnati, having done a lot of reasearch about the success of staging and the best Cincinnati Home Staging Companies.
We scheduled a consultation and made plans to get started quickly. After recomemending painting several rooms in the home, removing tired carpet that was covering wood floors, changing light fixtures, and staging, the house went back on the market and sold in 21 days. The Realtor's comment after the sale was made was that he was confindent that the staging made the difference and the home would not have sold as quickly without it. Take a look at the photos:
Before Photos...After Photos...Why does it matter? The new photos drove showing activity and delivered an offer. People are visual and they're busy. It is important to think about this as you prepare to list a home!
