Home Staging Statistics
Some of our home stagers active in our free discussion forum have been
sharing their success stories. We are right now in the thick of the best
season when people are selling their homes and wanting to move and get resettled
during the summer before school starts again. So if you've been
considering getting into your own home staging business, you'll discover it's an
excellent time of year to do so.
Here are some of the projects that they have completed, not only here in the USA
but clear over in Australia too.
- One stager had a friend she had not seen in several years. A serious
illness forced her to put her home up for sale. It was a large custom home
on 5 acres of land near a river. The home was on the market for 2 years and
had only received 2 extremely low offers. One of the reasons it was
not selling was due to some pretty wild colors in the home along with a 30'
ceiling. The home just did not show well at all. The home stager completely
cleaned the house. She bought in lots of big palms, flowering plants, and
hung art that flattered the colors and architecture. The walls were left
white but the stager cleverly made the color scheme work. By helping
potential buyers see the possibilities, the home sold within 4 months. Then
the stager lived in the home for awhile until the new buyers were able to
sell their prior home.
- The Gold Coast of Australia is just beginning the learn about home staging
and take advantage of this great service. This stager's first job had been on the market for over 12 months and was somewhat overpriced.
The stager transformed the house in 3 days. All the neighbors came in and were
impressed with the transformation. The jury is still out on this one because the
owner refused to alter the price.
- This same stager had another house on the market for 5 month. The
husband had suffered a nervous breakdown because of it. She writes, "Though the job paid me $4,300 profit for a weeks work, it was a bigger job as everything had to be purchased from bed dressing up. Still nice to get paid to do a lot of shopping though, rental furniture and all. But the good bit was that the very day it was put back on the market it received 3 offers and sold to the highest $30,000 above valuation."

"I can't tell you how impressed I am and I haven't even finished half of
your materials. I look so forward to having my "Barbara" time. I will
always be so grateful that after researching which route to take in my training,
I found you first. Being in the Wedding industry for so many years and writing
a certification course (approved by the state of California then going
nationwide) I THOUGHT I WAS THOROUGH! You blow me out of the water. I will keep
in touch. Thank you for just being you." - Tina Beene"
