SOLD in 1 Day!
It is so exciting when a property we’ve had the opportunity to work on is SOLD on the very first day of showings for over the asking price. This just goes to show how much staging can help.
These clients contacted us within a few days of deciding they were going to put their house on the market. They were very eager for a quick and profitable sale and they were very willing to do whatever it took to make that happen. Many recommendations were made during the consultation. Some of which included the removal of extra and over sized furniture pieces (to be able to showcase the ample space in each room), packing up of collections (to reduce the chance of distracting buyers with their personal taste) as well as repairs to a few walls and a fresh coat of paint (to create the move-in ready space that buyers are looking for).
All recommendations were completed within 3 weeks of the consultation and we were in to stage right after. As this was an occupied property every effort was made to use as much of their belongings as possible during staging. This was achieved by relocating some furniture from the main floor to the basement and vice versa. Also many of the client’s wall art and accessories were re-purposed into different rooms. We brought in a few small accessories, art and some bedding to accent what was already in place. All in all the few rental items were a worthwhile small investment on the client’s part to complete the look and provide the finishing touch.
Photos were taken the morning after staging day and it was on the market the next day. A total of 9 showings were booked for the following day and an offer was accepted that evening! So happy for our clients to realize such a quick sale! They can now move forward with their next adventure.
