The strangest attitude that we encounter is that only large high price point properties need staging.
We find that low price point/ smaller properties often benefit the most from staging.
We recently staged a one bedroom 550 square foot home in North Portland’s Cully neighborhood. The homeowner decided to try selling the home vacant. After two months on the market and practically no showings he followed his Realtors’ advice and had us stage the home. While challenging we were able to show ample seating, functional use, and an inviting space. After being re-listed the property had a ton of showings and sold less than a week later!
Our best success story from 2014 was an 812 sq ft house that after staging sold for $70,000 over asking! Well worth the cost of staging.
