Portland home staging success

Staged Homes in Portland Oregon have been selling fast in 2015!  As a busy home staging company in Portland Oregon, we've seen our staged homes sell faster in 2015 than anytime during the past nine years. That translates to happy sellers and listing agents!

We've found that the best recipe for a quick sale is for sellers to listen to their listing agent's advice on pricing, and then to stage their home to make sure that potential buyers find it appealing.  Why show a home "as is" when with a small investment and a little time it can look "move in ready," which is what today's buyers are demanding?

Here are some recent examples of homes that have sold quickly, once staged by Room Solutions Staging:

Room Solutions Staging tracks the homes that we stage, and through July 31 2015, the average Days on Market for our staged homes this year is just 8 days, compared to the average days on market for all Portland-area homes of 59 days for the same time period. Staging your home before listing it is a sound investment that provides an excellent return! Maximize your equity with professional staging to sell faster (and often for a higher offer).

Boy Maureen two very key points: Listen to the realtors for a proper selling price and stage.  I agree 100% on this.

Our market in Winnipeg has been slower than usual and just starting to pick up again after a few months.  Too often I have found homeowners cannot release themselves from the emotion of their properties and therefore don't listen to the realtors and price too high...this even if staged won't help for a quick sale.

 Hi Maureen Bray Portland OR Home Stager ~ Room Solutions Staging . I'm curious... do find greater success staging a vacant home as compared to a home with the owner's primary furnishings?

Hi Carol Williams that's a great question -- in addition to staging vacant homes where we provide all of the furniture, we also stage occupied homes and work with the sellers' things.  If both homes are priced right, they can both sell quickly.  The advantage to a vacant home is that since no one lives there, it stays in it's best "showing" condition. Not as easy to do that with occupied homes

I do wish there was a stager in my market.  Atlanta is the closest to me where I can hire one and the travel charges alone make it out of range for most of my clients.
