A vacant home that had been sitting on the market for about 158 days as per Zillow.com has just sold in 12 days after staging. An investor had completely renovated and expanded this Cape style house in Milltown, NJ hoping that it would sell quick. Many realtors over several months had shown the home to potential buyers, but no sale to be had. The home boasted a completely new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters and upgraded cabinetry. There were also remodeled bathrooms, freshly painted walls and new hardwood floors throughout. These features alone did not sell the house. Statistics show that vacant homes take much longer to sell as rooms lack focus and a point of reference without furniture. Distinctive Styling was contacted to stage the house for sale with rental furniture and accessories. Rooms actually appear larger with furniture and buyers can see how their furniture may be arranged if they were to live in the home. Staging is an effective real estate marketing tool to help sell homes fast and for the most money. The results are proof that home staging works!
