Staging Diva Graduate Saskia Vandemeulebroucke of Design Fusion shares a recent home staging job that proves home staging works.
This Chula Vista, California, home had been on the market for 60 days, without receiving a single offer.
If you’ve ever lived in a house while it’s on the real estate market, you know how frustrating and inconvenient this can be.
To save costs, and create a large impact for her client, Saskia brought in her own original artwork. She also rearranged the furnishings as you can see from her photos of the living room transformation.
Proof Home Staging Works
Before home staging – 60 days on the market with no offers.
After home staging – Contract signed within 14 days of staging, for $650,000. This was $20,000 above the initial asking price!
Success stories like these prove the substantial return on investment that home staging brings your clients. Never doubt what your creative talents are worth and don’t be shy about asking a premium price for your services as a home stager!
Home stagers come from all different past careers and many start a home staging business on the side of their full-time job. Such is the case for Saskia. Not only is she a talented artist, she works a 50-hour week as an IKEA Manager, while building up her new home staging business.
Saskia writes, “Debra Gould has given me insight into the business and marketing side of home staging. The Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program clarified how to charge for my services without wasting my time doing free estimates or free home staging consultations! I’m looking forward to getting noticed for my talents as both an artist and a designer.”
