Staging a home for sale involves a thorough review of the neighborhood, front yard curb appeal, approach to the main entrance, interior traffic pattern and placement of furnishings. Too much clutter is a detractor for prospective buyers, for example toys piled everywhere and too many family photos on the walls. Recent Staging . . .

"Consy did an excellent job of staging our home for sale. She was very sensitive to the emotional challenges that come with selling a home which in our case we had lived in for 10 years. Her philosophy is to work with existing home decor while introducing some of her own staging materials. This way you can continue to live in your home with your own belongings while you're in the process of selling, as opposed to living with rented furniture. As a result of her efforts along with the listing agent's, we had 35 potential buyers the first weekend and an offer within two weeks. I'm confident that the staging work contributed to a beautiful and marketable property which buyers were eager to visit. I would advise anyone selling their home to consider collaborating with Consy, it's worthwhile investment!"

A Few Facts:
- Buyers decide to view the inside of a property based upon the first 60 seconds of curb appeal. If the appeal is not visible from the outside, many won’t even go inside.
- Buyers spend on average 5 to 10 minutes viewing a property.
- In a robust market 94% of staged homes sell within 30 days. In a slower market it takes 40 days. Unstaged homes stay on the market an average of 165 days.
- Staging is so important as you only have one chance to make a positive first impression.
“Consy, I would like to say you are the best thing I ever could have added to my Real Estate business. You have the eye for what should be done in order to bring the home to today's current market standards for quick resale. You have made all my homes stand out and be the best there can be on the market. Thank you so much, and I look forward to working with you again soon.”

Consy can transform your property into a model home and help to refresh it and to enhance the value for a better, more profitable sale. Consy takes the approach that we don’t necessarily need to replace what we already own, but rather to work with what we have to refurbish or eliminate what we don’t need. A redesigned property uses what the seller already owns by repositioning the contents. This approach to Staging has gained popularity in this challenging market and is very cost effective.
