Hey guys! Curtis here. I'm in one of my
listings in Scottsdale that's just about to close..and I wanted to give you a look on
what staging does to a property. When we first listed this house, it had
all the furniture in it, the sellers we're still living here. But they moved out a
couple months into the list period and the house just sat kind of stagnant..This
is the before footage before it got staged and the house shows okay. It's not
great but definitely doesn't show bad.. and as we walk through it, it just
doesn't really give you that "homey feeling." One of the biggest things about
houses is how do you feel when you walk in the front door? And there's no
furniture, there's no color, you don't really get that warm feeling that, you
know, "This is the home I want to buy." It just shows a little plain, bare, kind of
boring, although there are some nice upgrades, you still don't get that
feeling as you walk in the front door. So you get an idea of what the house looks
like when you walk through it but I'm going to show you some still photos,
before and after as well. I think you're gonna be amazed how different the house
looks with furniture in there. So we decided to get it staged and it's crazy..
within a couple of weeks, they went under contract. From a vacant house to all this
staging..So what we did was - we staged it, got new photos, and the house sold almost
instantly. It was crazy! And the showings, the feedback got so much better just
from having a little bit of furniture and a little bit of color.
Staging isn't cheap but it's totally worth it. Especially, if you have a house
that's been sitting on the market, vacant.. a little bit of staging will certainly
help get some people in the door..new photos, add some color to it. You can plan on spending $1,500 or more
to get it staged depending on how many rooms you want to get done. But the
houses show so much better when it staged. Even in the kitchen, just adding a little
pop of color makes a big difference. Comment below if you have any questions
about "if I should, shouldn't stage" anything real estate-related, let me know
and let's keep making this year the best year yet!
Alright, take care guys. Thanks!
Before and after of a listing in Scottsdale that got beautifully staged. The results are incredible!
