Recently, we staged a luxury Clyde Hill home after another stager’s design failed to muster any interest. The staged home sat on the market for several months until the sellers finally decided to take it off. When they wanted to put the house back on the market, they started afresh with our company. After just 8 days with our staging design, the sellers accepted an offer for their $3.5 million house. Why did the house prove stale the first time it was on the market but then sell so quickly the second time around? As the home was staged both times, this house doesn’t fall under the usual case: how staging sold a home that first went on the market with the seller’s personal furniture. So if the home was staged both times, why the big difference in results? It all comes down to effective home staging.
