Why staging helps so, so much…

  • Most buyers form an opinion about a home within the first 12 seconds upon arrival

  • Staged homes spent 83% less time on the market than non-staged homes -HomeGain.com

  • A Coldwell Banker survey of 2,800 properties revealed staged homes sell in 1/2 the time of non-staged homes

  • Sellers who spent $500 on staging recovered over 343% of the cost when they sold their home -HomeGain.com

  • In a Home Gain survey of over 2,000 Realtors, it was discovered that home staging typically provides a 586% return on investment

  • Our own vacant staging statistics reveal that 7 out of 10 homes we prepare, consistently sell within the first 45 days−many within the first two weeks

  • Over 90% of buyers look for homes on the Internet.  So, it is critical that your home makes a strong first impression online. Staging will help you do just that…

  • In controlled tests selling identical homes, those professionally staged vs. those not staged at all, the non-staged houses sold in 102 days. While, the staged houses sold in 45 days. -Real Estate Staging Association/RESA

  • It is estimated that only 10% of home buyers can visualize the potential of a home. That means 90% are not going to be able to look past the dirt, clutter, and imperfections

  • According to the National Association of Realtors/NAR, the average staging investment is between 1 and 3% of the home’s asking price, which generates a return of 8 to 10%. That’s a pretty good investment…

"I have had the pleasure of working with Sylvia Dunn/Home Staging Works for a few years now. I initially contacted them to help stage a house that had previously failed to sell due to a challenging small floor plan. Home Staging Works had just the right furniture for the spaces and as a result the house sold in two weeks! I have used them on subsequent listings and each time they do a marvelous job of staging the homes to best showcase the spaces and features. Home Staging Works' furniture and accessories are all upscale and in excellent condition. Sylvia's team is fast, getting in and out in record time. Each of the properties sold within 1% of the list price. I recommend Home Staging Works to anyone I know in need of an excellent stager."

"Sylvia and her team have been instrumental in the success of many of our listings. Their staging has transformed otherwise average homes into high demand properties. Staging not only improves the marketability of the listings, but has become something we build our listing business around. Home Staging Works handles each of our clients with respect and kindness."

"I had a vacant listing on the market for over a year. I thought, after getting the price reduced, that it would be a matter of a few days and it would sell. After two months and numerous showings, but no offers, I realized I had to do something. I talked with a co-worker who told me about Sylvia and her team. She called Home Staging Works her 'secret weapon.' Within three days the Home Staging Works team had transformed a plain, ordinary house into a showcase. It was less than a week when my first offer came in. That day I became a believer. Next time I have a vacant house, Home Staging Works will be my first call."

"I was serious about selling our house and knew I needed help, so I decided to find a designer/stagger to who would be able to give me an unbiased opinion. I found Home Staging Works through the Internet.

Sylvia and her team were wonderful! They came out and walked through the house from the front to the back, and everything in between.

Although I had a 3D design app that worked wonders, it couldn’t tell me about colors or what pictures to put up and where. It also couldn’t tell me about resources that could help me prep the house. They analyzed the house as a buyer would. Not only did they help me with knowing what to do, they have helped me throughout the whole process. Sylvia and everyone over there answered all my questions, looked at the colors, etc. to make sure they were perfect.

Would I recommend Home Staging Works…..absolutely!!! Were they worth the money? Absolutely!!! I know you are thinking that you can do it yourself, but let’s face it, you are bias about your home. You already think it's wonderful, but the buyers may not and let’s be truthful….it's all about what the buyer likes and will pay for. If you want to make your house stand out so it will sell, then spend the money and hire Home Staging Works to make it look great and appeal to buyers−and, they make it shine, so it is really worth every penny and then some.

If you have questions please feel free to contact me."

"Working with Sylvia was delightful. We listed our home in the middle of winter−when nobody is out looking for houses in Spokane−and yet it was only on the market for about five weeks. I attribute much of that to Sylvia and the Home Staging Works team, because they really helped us look at our home with a buyer's eye. We didn't have much money to spend on staging, and they understood that. They helped us rearrange the furniture we already had, and they moved around items on our shelves in interesting and fresh ways. I don't have that talent, so having Home Staging Works come in and assist us was a gift. Using them was the best money we spent in preparing to list our house, and I recommend their services with great enthusiasm."

− Tiffany Hogue | Homeowner

"Sylvia and the whole Home Staging Works group was great to work with! They came in confident and knew exactly what to do to get our house ready to sell. They kept in mind inexpensive and affordable, yet high-class, since they know that's what buyers would like. They were willing to come at our convenience, and were always very pleasant. The staging of our home was most impressive too. We went from a house with four little boys under the age of seven to a pristine, high-class decorated home! We sold our home within a month of putting it on the MLS, and got exactly what we were asking for in price! Thank you Sylvia and your team at Home Staging Works for all of your hard work!"

− Andrea Fillmore | Homeowner

"Our team uses Home Staging Works for all of our staging. We know how important marketing is to sell a home for top dollar and it all starts with staging. We have used other companies in the past, and the results from Home Staging Works are far superior. I am confident that when I hire Home Staging Works, we will receive amazing results. Our homes consistently sell faster and for more money. After six months of listing a home, Home Staging Works staged the home, and we sold within a month for full price. Working with Home Staging Works is BY FAR the most effective money that a seller can spend to sell their home faster and for more money. ALL of my clients have loved working with Sylvia and her team! She has great communication skills to be firm enough to get changes made, and so kind that my clients love her instantly. I can't say enough about the value that HSW provides."

− Marc Nilson | Navigator Northwest Corp | Keller Williams Spokane

"I truly appreciate the value that Sylvia and her team bring when they consult with my clients on newly listed homes. I could site many examples, but the best and most recent one is a listing that I received after another agent had it listed for six months without selling. The first thing I did was have my sellers make an appointment with Home Staging Works for a consultation. The advice and recommendations that they gave them totally transformed their house! It was so much more appealing when you walked in the door and throughout the home that it had an accepted offer within a week. Never do I list a home without the help of the Home Staging Works expertise."

− Cheryl Hartzog | RC Schwartz & Associates

"Home staging is an awesome marketing tool and I definitely recommend it when selling new and resale homes alike! It provides a potential buyer with the ability to visualize how they could live in a home, while highlighting the benefits and minimizing the negatives. I’ve been working with Sylvia and Home Staging Works for about 18 months now and they do a fabulous job! On average, once they have staged one of my listings, it is under contract within 14 days. Even a couple of have sold for over listing price due to multiple offers−keep in mind that they had been available for sale for over 30 days prior to their efforts! If you’re looking to make your home look its best in order to sell quickly, contact Home Staging Works−they'll take good care of you!"
