Wait to Stage?

Q: Christine, in this terrible economic time, I am finding many of the real estate agents in my area are telling clients to wait to stage. Is this good advice? Should I be looking for a J-O-B? What can I tell these misguided agents? Jess F, RI

A: Good question Jess! Realtors are really believe they are acting in the best interests of their client; if money is tight, jobs are tenuous and selling a necessity, then, in my opinion, its all the more reason to stage a property. People in a position to buy are certainly more than ever looking for the best value their money can buy. The sooner a property is staged the better. A property which is “move-in” ready is so much easier to buy. In fact Jess 63% of buyers surveyed said they would actually pay more money for move in ready. It might not surprise you the majority of those people were men! You guessed it – they don’t want to inherit the “to-do” list.

I am new to the Home Staging business. I had originally taken another Home Staging course and received their certification. However, my experience was very disappointing…

I had heard great things about the organization by alumni as well as have had great discussions and assistance from Liz and Linda. They have always been there to answer any and all my questions, they are polite and super efficient…
