Well I hope everyone had a great holiday and got to spend time with family and friends. Well, I'll get straight to the point- my neighbor and I are in the process of starting a business and our main focus is stagers. Since my neighbor has been in the furniture business for over 20 yrs he can get furniture at prices that are very competitive. He already has a warehouse with plenty of space and we are interested in offering the following services to stagers and I was hoping to get some feedback as to if this is a needed service. Here is the basics of our plan:
1. Sell furniture to stagers - we already have over $30,000 in antiques and plan on adding more quality furniture soon. Our goal is to provide furniture that stands out when a home buyer is out looking at 20 homes, so some of our stuff will be a little more contemporary, but we will have the basics too. I was thinking if you had one or two pieces that would help a potential buyer remember a certain property- it would benefit the seller.
2. We will store your furniture at our heated warehouse.
3. We will have some unique furniture to rent- something that will make your staged houses stand out.
4. We will deliver and pick up your furniture for you too.
Your opinions are greatly appreciated and please don't be shy-if you think this is a crazy idea let me know.
