“My house has been on the market for 90 days and I’m not getting any new showings!  Neither home seller or real estate agent want their listing to sit on the market; but when it does, a new plan needs to be created.  Here are a few reasons why your home may not be selling:

VACANT HOMES

  • Lack Emotion Appeal
  • Feel cold and sterile
  • Buyers cannot visualize an empty space
  • Awkward area functions are not obvious
  • Empty rooms draw attention to flaws
  • Unstaged is generic and not exciting

OCCUPIED HOMES

  • Too much of your personality in the decor
  • Lacks curb appeal
  • No balance or flow
  • Furniture placement
  • Outdated or period specific furniture
  • Pet odor
  • Too many functions in one room

As a Certified Staging Professional, I work with the home seller and realtor to ensure all homes present and show at their best–online and in person.  Part of our job is to view the home through a buyer’s eye, address the issues and offer a solution that will enhance the appeal of the home to a target market.

Statistics from NAR have shown that staging a “stale listing” home after it has been listed on the market helps it sell 73% faster..  Accenting the positive through the home, updating furnishings, adding warmth with decor will help your listing become a “fresh” listing.  New pictures on the MLS will create more internet traffic which will bring more showings.   And staging a home is also less expensive than a price reduction.

We have storage options for larger furnishings that need to be removed while the house is on the market.  Coastal Mi-Box will bring a storage box to you.  After you load it, they will pick it up and store it at their warehouse.

Call me for a consultation!  Virtual Consultations are also an option.  I assure you, a consultation will help you see what your listing is missing and will add equity to your home.  We can help you edit or do a full stage.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Cheers!
