This vacant townhome in the desirable Weatherstone community of Chester Springs had been on the market for over 100 days when Organized by Design was contracted to stage it.

When I first walked into the home, the combination Living Room and Dining Room space felt very small, as you can see from the before picture.

After staging it with furniture it became obvious how large the space really was!

Buyers could now come in and envision how their furniture might layout in this room and begin to feel how comfortable it would be to live in this elegant home.

The Master Bedroom was large, but being void of furnishings, it just felt blah. Even the beautiful silk draperies that had been left on the triple window bump-out weren’t enough to give the room some life.

Staging the Master Bedroom brought in much needed warmth, interest and visual appeal to the room.

After this vacant townhome had sat on the market un-staged, it was under contract in only a week after staging!

The latest home staging statistics from NAR, The National Association of Realtors 2017 Profile of Home Staging reports that:

  • Over half (77%) of buyers’ agents said “that staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.”
  • Staging the living room for buyers was found to be most important (55%) followed by staging the master bedroom (51%).
  • Almost a third (27%) of buyers are willing to overlook other property faults when a home is staged.
  • Over half (62%) of sellers’ agents reported staging decreases the time a home is on the market.
  • 97% of buyer’s agents say that staging does have an effect on the buyer’s view of the home.

Wouldn’t you want to be the most appealing, competitive home on the market that your potential buyers are looking for when you’re ready to sell?
