Proof that staging works in Tigard, Oregon condos

I am kind of in charge of getting a condo conversion project sold in Tigard, Oregon, and in 1 month's time we had about 30 showings and two offers. Not bad, since the only home we had to show them was the model, and if they put an offer in, then we put the finishing touches on the unit they would like to buy and get them moved in.


We hold the model unit open every Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 and usually get 3-4 couples a day through, and on weekdays, we usually get one or two drop bys and I show them the property if I am there. Since last Tuesday, we have had two showings and two offers and they both want the model unit! Why? Because it is exactly what they want! One of them actually wanted to put an offer in that included the furniture staying in the unit.

If that doesn't say, "Stage your home today," then nothing will! You see, for less than $1,000 we have received two offers, in quicker time, and both are full price offers! So call me if you are thinking about selling your home, and I will market it to get it sold quickly and get you in contact with a great home stager, so you can sell it even faster and for more money!

For more information on the present value of your home and how much you can possibly sell it for in the present market, feel free to call or e-mail me anytime.

Todd - I, too, fully believe in the power of good staging.  Nicely done - congratulations!

The before and after look great! We are looking at staging more and more here with stagnet homes!

I truly believe in staging, it makes the property look more like a home.  Question?  Who pays for the staging?

Does anything show worse than a vacant house...I guess a vacant dirty house!!! Thanks,   Fran

Todd- what a huge difference staging makes. I work for a builder, and I am always trying to hammer the point home that his homes would show much nicer and get a better response if he would allow me to invest in staging, and require that the workers keep the site much cleaner.

Jason - I'm just glad the seller understood and now sees the proof.

Linda - It also actually made it brighter in there, thanks to the lights.

Charles - It will be the best money your client could spend.

Wayne - The seller does since it usually helps their pocket book. If it is a short sale situation, I may do it with stuff I have in storage.

Fran - Oh, and I've seen a few of those lately.

Alecia - Show him my blog and I think he may get it! It really does make a difference.

Todd:   Thanks for confirming that some realtors actually "get it"!    I bet your clients can't thank you enough for suggesting staging,  and getting it sold.

Todd, Who is your stager? I was quoted double that price for a furnished staging. Do you have your clients pay for staging? I guess the proof is in the pudding so may I use your post to help cinvince my sellers that this is a great idea?  I guess I'll have to check with several stagers in our area to help me get a couple of my listings staged.

Connie - OH YEAH! I get it!

Judy - I wish I knew, I just suggested it to the listing agent and one day a truck showed up with a lot of stuff and she later told me it cost less than a $1,000. I think she shopped around herself for the stuff and stagged it herself to save her seller.
