It happened again. I went on a consultation yesterday and the seller told me something that made my head spin. Their last realtor told them to remove almost everything from their house for it to show well. They removed furniture, pictures, and accessories.
Alex and Heather paid for storage for over 6 months. "We felt like we were camping", Alex told me.
Their house didn't sell. The sellers decided it was time for a change.
A new realtor was hired. He called me to intervene. Realtor Tom told me the house 'reads cold' and has 'limited appeal'.
|Beautiful kitchen but no warmth.|
|Master Bedroom with only a bed.|
|Bonus Room is OK but where's the color?|
You know I'm all about emotional appeal. I believe staging is about making a house look warm and inviting--a place buyer would like to make their new home.
PS--Realtors are not Stagers.
